Poem: Third Day

Third Day

Written By Reuben Teo, Singapore

A thousand years our eyes may see;
Still none lived like Him of Galilee.
Centuries cannot compare
To the seconds of His single tear.
But dead He was, and buried too,
Our King sealed in a simple tomb.
The Champion of Eternity
Had fallen; there was no gaiety.

On the third, we stood and saw
Dawn break at the tomb.
No man stirred, only Rome’s, for
Ten guards stood at the tomb.
Then
The seal broke, the ground shook
The stone was rolled away.
The guards of Rome, their posts forsook
Took to flight and fled away.

A thousand years our eyes may see;
Still none live like Him of Galilee.
Centuries cannot compare
To the sight we saw at that tomb there.
Alive He is, and honored too
Our Lord lies no more in the tomb.
The Ruler of Eternity
Has risen; let there be gaiety.

The-perfect-fit

The Perfect Fit

By Isai Oviedo, Florida USA

About the animation:
“We had an outreach event for the local youth a couple of months back, and God had recently been telling me to serve him in new ways, so I decided to combine my passion for God and teaching young people with my passion for animation. Honestly, the idea is completely God-inspired. I was just sitting at my table, staring at a piece of paper for an hour, not getting anywhere. After a quick prayer and a mid-day nap, I had it! Since this was for outreach, I knew I wanted to have a very personal, honest message that anyone can relate to. Especially with today’s youth culture that has really embraced video games and is so immersed in every form of media.

We often think we’re set for life with our family, friends, jobs, school, etc, but when we realize that all of that still doesn’t fill the missing space in our heart, we panic and try to fill it with so many things that just don’t fit.

Proverbs 19:22 says “What a person desires is unfailing love”. That’s what we need. Not those other things. The only
one who can give us unfailing love is God through the sacrifice His son made on the cross so that we wouldn’t have to spend all of our lives looking for the perfect fit. We already have it!” – Isai

About the animator:
Isai loves sticking lots of hidden details in his work, so freeze-frame every once in awhile to see if you can spot the Easter eggs he has added into the animation! He is currently studying animation in Miami, Florida.
