Watchman-Examiner —

Vital Christian experience comes from knowing Jesus as the living Saviour.  Two irreligious young men were discussing the resurrection, telling each other why it was impossible for them to accept the doctrine.  Then a deacon of a near-by church walked by, and in a joking way one of the young fellows called to him, “Say, Deacon, tell us why you believe that Jesus rose again.”  “Well,” he answered, “one reason is that I was talking with Him for half an hour this very morning.”  We may all experience proof of the resurrection of Christ in the acknowledging of His living presence in our lives.  No one who knows Jesus personally questions the resurrection.
