I’ll never forget the Easter Sunday in 1993 when Bernhard Langer won the Masters golf tournament. As he stepped off the 18th green to receive the green jacket—one of golf’s most coveted prizes—a reporter said, “This must be the greatest day of your life!” Without missing a beat, Langer replied: “It’s wonderful to win the greatest tournament in the world, but it means more to win on Easter Sunday—to celebrate the resurrection of my Lord and Savior.”Posted: April 19, 2014, 1:00 am

1 Corinthians 15:12-26
Are there any two more devastating words than no hope? No hope beyond a devastating diagnosis, no hope when we lose our job, no hope when our loved one dies, and ultimately no hope when we face our own mortality?
At some point in our lives, we will all endure the kind of loss that will knock us off our feet and tempt us to abandon hope. And what if there is no resurrection? Then our lack of hope applies not just to this life but to eternity. And if that's the case, then there's nothing left in life but to eat, drink, and live it up.
When the Presence of Hope Arose
Mon - Fri 9pm.This is just religious jealousy by this religious council, the Sanhedrin Council, against this man who has come along, stirring up the people, getting a lot of followers, getting people excited and teaching something, which is in direct conflict with what the Sanhedrin Council stood for. It is out of envy, out of jealousy.

Mon/Wed/Sat 11pm3300 Dana Pankey Classic: (Self-reliance, Indifference toward God) Born in 1901, Dana, the son of the largest landowner/rancher in New Mexico, grew up around old-time cowboys and picked up their coarse language and attitudes. Thinking he could gain favor with God by being good, he ignored God and tried living a good life. When he encountered an old cowboy singing a Gospel song on a street corner, he placed his faith in Christ. Involved in a letter writing ministry to shut-ins, he suffered several strokes, able to type with only one finger, but continued his ministry.
The Story Teller
Sat 3pm. and Sun 12pm."... and when I woke up, I was sick. Not only from what I had drank that previous night, but the burden of sin was heavy upon me. And not only that but, I was so sick I knew if I died at that moment, I wasn't prepared to meet God."

Mon - Sat 7:30am & 7:30pmCindi mixed cake batter, set the oven at the correct temperature, and popped the cake in to bake. "I'll clean the bowl," offered her brother Nick.
"Nope." Cindi quickly ran water into the bowl. "I've heard the batter isn't good for you like that. You'll have to wait till the cake is done."
But when the cake was done, it did not look good! "I'll try it," said Nick. He cut out a small piece. "Yuck!" he exclaimed. "Not even frosting will help that!"
Dad came in from the garage as Cindi tried the cake and made a face. "What's going on?" Dad asked.
"Cindi's cake tastes funny," replied Nick.
Seeing the sugar cannister still standing on the counter, Dad looked startled. "Oh, no!" he exclaimed. "It's my fault, Cindi, and I'm sorry. Yesterday I picked up a few groceries. When I got home, a box of salt was leaking. The sugar canister was empty, so I poured the salt into it. The phone rang and I forgot to mention it." Dad hugged her as he apologized. "I'm afraid you used salt instead of sugar."
"See? You should have let me clean the bowl," said Nick. "Then you wouldn't have even baked it."
"Does this remind anybody of Pastor's message last Sunday?" Mom asked. "He talked about the verse in Isaiah where people said evil was good and light was darkness and bitter was sweet. Remember? Of course, salt isn't bitter, but the idea is still the same. The label on the canister said the contents were sweet, but they sure weren't."
"No." Dad shook his head. "It's too bad that happened, but at least you can bake a new cake. If people say a thing is good when God says it's evil, that's much more serious."
"Like . . . what sort of things might they say?" Cindi asked.
"Well, how about if someone says a movie or TV show is good, but it uses bad words or makes sinful behavior look okay?" Mom asked.
"That's calling evil good," said Nick. "Saying that doing drugs is good or that cigarettes won't hurt you are other examples of calling evil good, right?"
"Some kids say going to Bible club is a waste of time," said Cindi. "That's just the opposite. It's saying that something good is evil."
Dad smiled. "You're getting the idea," he said. "In fact, I think you've got it!"
How About You?
Do you know which things God says are good, and which He says are evil? In today's world, many people try to make the good sound evil and the evil sound good. It's sad that people often think things like truthfulness, kindness, and patience are not always necessary--and that dishonesty, immorality, and cheating are sometimes okay. That isn't true. Know what God says in His Word, and follow His guidelines.
Today's Key Verse:
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil. (Isaiah 5:20)
Today's Key Thought:
Never say something evil is good
Paws & Tales
Tue 4pm.Episode Summary:
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to meet Jesus? Or to be in Jerusalem the very week Jesus was crucified and raised from the dead? You’re invited to explore the miracle of Easter on this week’s Kids Corner.
What if someone said to you, “Oh, I know all about Easter. It’s Easter baskets and chocolate bunnies and coloring eggs.” What would you say? Do you know how to talk about the real miracle of Easter? If you’re not sure what you would say, here’s some help.
The Easter story starts with God and how God created us. God gives us each value and purpose; he wants to us to know him personally. But when we sin, we can’t have a personal relationship with God. What is sin? Sin is anything (thoughts, actions, words, attitudes) that turns us away from God. What is the result of sin? Sin separates us from God—eternally, which means even after we die.
Some people respond to this separation from God by denying there is a God or by doing lots of good works or by focusing on jobs or money or relationships with other people. None of these will satisfy our deepest hunger to be with God. What can we do about our sin?
Jesus is the only one who can bridge the gap between us and God. He paid the price for our sins when he died on the cross on Good Friday, but he didn’t remain dead. Jesus rose from the dead and conquered Satan and sin once and for all on Easter Sunday! So how can we have a personal relationship with Jesus? First, admit we are sinners and are separated from God by our own sins. Then believe that Jesus is our Savior—he promises to forgive our sin. Trust Jesus from now on to direct our lives to live for him, in him, and with him.
That’s the real meaning of Easter—Jesus coming to earth to be one of us and to save us! Jesus is the only meaning of Easter! This year, if someone asks you about Easter and candy, be ready to talk about Jesus! He’s the reason we celebrate!
For more about the Good News Jesus brings go to http://kidscorner.net/bible/goodnews/.
Do you know how the early Christians greeted each other? They said, "He is risen. He is risen indeed." Having watched Jesus die on the cross and having seen him buried in a tomb, the fact that Jesus had risen from that grave was such a stunning event that it became their signature whenever they met. Jesus' resurrection was a dramatic, confirming revelation that Jesus truly was the Son of God.
We pray that this retelling of the Easter story will help you to experience the amazing truth that "He is risen, He is risen indeed." And, that knowing this will give energy and urgency to your witness and confident hope for your future.
