And sees two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.…
There was a famous preacher in the last century whose sermons, though full of ingenious reasoning and brilliant rhetoric, were empty of Christ. One morning after service a poor old mother was seen to stand alone, outside, weeping still tears. On being asked her trouble, she said, "They have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid Him.' Without Christ in the service of the sanctuary, music, eloquence, the most imposing ritual, is empty; a full church is an empty church; the most magnificent temple is only an empty tomb.
(C. Stanford, D. D.)
