It’s Easter Sunday. A day where death was turned into life. Where everything changed for me. The day I began to really live.
Easter means a reason to celebrate. A reason to go on. More than just something we do once a year – it is something that holds meaning for us who know Jesus – every day of the year.
It means that even sin and death cannot separate us from the love of God – shining down and moving within us.
It is the final victory – our anthem carried deep in our hearts and it is our ultimate theme song.
A risen Jesus – no longer imprisoned or confined to death’s agenda – breaking through that icy grip of Satan and presenting us with that same power to sustain our ordinary lives – give us a new reason to exist – not be enslaved any longer to sin and most of all to give us an opportunity to live with renewed hope for the future.
As I was looking for a song that would describe this risen Jesus – I was struck by this next song by Phillips, Craig and Dean. It speaks so beautifully of God’s love. That He – in his terrible love – would shine His light on us. “That we may be saved, that we may have life – to find our way in the darkest night – let your grace fall on us…”
I am praying that you too would know this risen Jesus – and let His love shine down on you.
