Three Easter Morning Questions

I begin this morning with three questions for you to answer silently in your own mind.

  • First, do you want to be happy?
  • Second, do you want your happiness to be partial or full?
  • Third, do you want your happiness to stop or to last as long as you last?

The reason I count these questions worthy of Easter Sunday morning is not just because I think every person in this room cares about them, but also because these questions are the rock bottom concerns of the Bible.

Wherever the Bible has had its profoundest effect in people’s lives, it hasn’t been because of the demands of a new duty, but because of the power of a new pleasure.
