The Prophet’s Easter Story
WHO hath believed our report? And to whom is the arm of
the Lord revealed?
For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a
root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and
when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire
He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and
acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him;
he was despised, and we esteemed from not.
Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet
we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised
for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him;
and with his stripes we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray: we have turned every
one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity
of us all.
He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not
his mouth; he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a
sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
He was taken from prison and from judgment; and who shall
declare his generation? For he was cut off out of the land of the
living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.
And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in
his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any
deceit in his mouth.
Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to
grief; when thou shall make his soul an offering for sin, he shall
see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the
Lord shall prosper in his hand.
He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied;
by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for
he shall bear their inquiries.
Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he
shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured
out his soul unto death; and he was numbered with the trans
gressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession
for the transgressors. Isaiah 53

To Work Horses
This wet spring has not allowed
us to break horses in slowly for
fieldwork. Thus, it becomes very
important to take it easy with
workhorses the first couple of days
when spring fieldwork begins.
Give your horses a break period

day too long for a given work

Teach children from an early

WHERE IS YOUR
Mark 16:1-8; Romans 8:12-27
Someone has said that “Easter
is nothing more than wishful long
ing for pie-in-the-sky by-and-by.”
Perhaps that’s what it is for some
people, but for many of us it is a
For some of us, Easter is pri
marily the celebration of a monu
mental event in the past: Jesus
Christ resurrected from the tomb
almost two thousand years ago.
Without a doubt, Easter is that
all history turns on that single
event but it is also much more.
For others, Easter is seen as
essentially the promise of a future
deliverance for Christ’s followers:
as he was victorious over the
grave, so shall we be. And Easter
is that, too all our hopes and
fears turn on that assurance but
it is still much more.
For still others, Easter is the
reality that helps us to meet the
challenge of the present moment:
the resurrection and eternal life
can be experienced now as well as
then. Surely, Easter is that, too
without that power daily life
would crush us and we would
emerge as victims instead of
ALL OF THE ABOVE
Actually, Easter is all of the
above. Because of Christ’s victory
over the grave two thousand years
ago, you and I trust in our own
survival of death some time in the
future. And. because of that future
assurance of victory, we can live
victoriously in the present
moment No, it is not just ancient
history or pie-in-the-sky, but pow
er for the present so long as we
understand what it means for us:
human destiny lies, not in the
material world, but in the realm of
agent, raises the question, “Do the
milk replacers you are feeding to
your calves provide enough nutri
ents for rapid growth?”
According to Shirk, this
depends on the kind and amount
fed. For calves to consume as
many nutrients as they would from
a feeding of whole milk, it may be
necessary to increase the recom
mended feeding rates of some
replacers by SO percent
To determine the amount you
need to feed, calculate the amount
of nutrients your calf would con
sume when fed whole milk. A
calf's whole milk requirements is
approximately 10 percent of its
body weight. Compare this to the
nutrient analysis and dilution rate
on the feed tag of the milk replacer.
Also, for best results, choose
replacers that are made from milk
based products and contain at least
20 percent protein and 20 percent
Young calves sometimes have
difficulty digesting soy based pro
ducts and may develop scours.
Remember, as calves develop in
size, increase feeding rates
Feather Profs Footnote: “To
attain the best from people, chose
to think and believe the best about
Now the importance of that
statement lies in the fact that most
of us do not live as if that is true.
To the contrary, we live as if our
destiny is to be found in the mater
ial world, nowhere else. We find
our security, our pleasure, our suc
cess in material things. We treat
the physical body as if it is the
chief vehicle of our selfhood. But
if life has any message for us it is
that the physical, material realities
of life are the one thing we can
count on losing. And the one thing
that lives beyond the veil of death
is that which is of the Spirit As
Paul says to the Romans, “So then,
brethren, we are debtors, not to the
flesh for if you live according
to the flresh you will die, but if by
the Spirit you put to death the
deeds of the body you will live”
BY THE SPIRIT
That does not denigrate mater
ial things or the physical body. I
love the material world in all of its
beauty and wonder. 1 enjoy the
flesh that God has given me.
There is nothing wrong in the
material world so long as we
understand that it is not our des
tiny. Our destiny is with the Spirit.
When the physical world and the
spiritual worlds collide, go with
As Paul put sit, “For those who
live according to the flesh set their
minds on the things of the flesh...
but those who live according to
the Spirit set their minds on the
things of the Spirit To set the
mind on the flesh is death, but to
set the mind on the Spirit is life
and peace” (8:5-7).
Easter reminds us once again
that human destiny is to be found,
not with the body, not with the
physical realities, but with the
Spirit So, to what destiny are you
