Easter Blessings


Up from the grave he arose;
with a mighty triumph o'er his foes;
he arose a victor from the dark domain,
and he lives forever, with his saints to reign.
He arose! He arose! Hallelujah! Christ arose!



At Christmas, we celebrate the birth of Christ. But at Easter we rejoice that He arose from the grave. The circle was completed. He was sent to this earth to make the supreme sacrifice for our sins. The day they nailed him to the cross was the darkest day in the history of the world. He made the supreme sacrifice that would set us free. It was over. They placed Him in a tomb and mourned the passing of their dear friend.

But He did not stay. He arose. In victory, He triumphed over death and set us free.

There’s a peace I’ve come to know
Though my heart and flesh may fail
There’s an anchor for my soul
I can say “It is well”
Jesus has overcome
And the grave is overwhelmed
The victory is won
He is risen from the dead

  And I will rise when He calls my name
No more sorrow, no more pain
I will rise on eagles’ wings
Before my God fall on my knees and rise
I will rise

Oh, to have been there on that morning. To look upon the face of our risen Savior. To know that He did it all for me. The pain, the agony, the suffering. The one single most important day in the history of the world. The day He arose. The day that promises us hope for a world lost in sin.

 

Happy Easter!
