TITLE: The Greatest Sunday School Meeting Ever !!!
By George Hurst


The Greatest Sunday School Meeting Ever!!! But why? Well, because it was being taught not just by any teacher. And it was being held not just in any location. No, my friend this Sunday School class is one that you don't want to miss, over sleep on, or even think I will just catch next week's class.

As the young devoted Mary made her way; with the others to His sepulchre. They had prepared the spices; for the anointing of His body which had been so cruelly and brutally crucified. But, as they approached this place of the Greatest Sunday School Meeting ever; to their surprise the door had been left open, or the stone had been rolled away. Well, as she peered into the empty tomb of her Master, Teacher and Lord the appearance of 2 angels greeted her; with the salutation of: He is not here, He is Risen! She was weeping; and they even asked her...WHY WEEPEST THOU? Because I have come to prepare the body of my master, and they have moved His body. Tell me where have they taken him.

For a young lady of such great emotions; it is enough to come to see the one who you have devoted so much and came to love with your whole heart. I believe that this message is for even us His believers today. Are we coming to our Sunday School meetings, with the expectancy of meeting and bring our prepared souls as offerings to our Master. Better yet, are we WEEPING when we believe that somehow He is not there. The one that I really pray that we get, is that when He stands right before us, do we mistake Him for a gardener or do we even hear Him speak ...OUR NAME! My beloved friends, ask yourself....WHAT IS MY SUNDAY SCHOOL MEETING experience like?

Well, the greatest thing of this unusual Sunday School meeting; is that the teacher is Jesus Christ, the Risen Lord and Savior! The message of His teaching this early resurrection morning is: SIN and DEATH are defeated; LOVE and LIFE have won the VICTORY!!! See it is in the power of God, that raises us all from the death of sin; and fills us with THE VICTORY of Our Risen Savior!!! As, I approach each Sunday School setting now; my eyes and heart have been opened. I come with the expectancy and longing to meet MY MASTER and TEACHER, and to let Him renew me and remind me;
that I have BEEN RAISED UP with Him to new life. Yes, that is what being "Born-again" is all about.

So, in every sunday school meeting that takes place all over the world; I PRAY that we come looking for the Master, weeping if we find Him not, but also realizing that our Heavenly Father is telling each one of us...I have or I will RAISE YOU UP TO NEW LIFE also, because He has conquered sin and death through the life, death, burial and resurrection of His Only Son, Jesus Christ! Class is over for this week; but our lesson of His Love and Resurrection power is never-ending! My hope for each who read this; is the same message that Mary recieved that Sunday morning...GO, and tell others that I have RISEN and I am soon going to meet with them.

Yes, you're right -- that is the best Sunday School ever! Thank you for sharing this piece!

I, too, think that is the greatest Sunday School ever....Good Title. It would be a little easier to read, I think, if the sentences weren't so long, but that is just my opinion.
I really enjoyed your article.

This line is worth a fortune: "I PRAY that we come looking for the Master, weeping if we find Him not."
