Gosh, I literally just watched this video again since I’ve never seen it sung live, wow. With Easter week here already just thought it would be a great reminder for us all to prepare our hearts and minds for what Easter is really about. As nice as the pretty dresses and all the bright-colored Easter outfits are, as cool as the Easter Bunny is and getting an Easter basket on Sunday morning filled with some super awesome and sweet treats. As great as that part of Easter is, it’s not the reason we celebrate it. The reason we celebrate it isn’t just limited to one day per year either, as much as I struggle myself to make it a daily reminder, it’s the only reason we have the beautiful life we have. It’s a daily remembrance of what Jesus has done for you and me, the glorious message of the Gospel, that Jesus died baring the weight of our sins on the cross, He took the punishment and died the death we deserved then on the third day, when everyone thought Jesus was a goner, HE ROSE!!!!! He rose from the grave with our victory in hand over fear, sin and death!!!! Jesus sacrificed His life so that we could not only have life but life to the fullest, walking in perfect relationship with God, the Creator and Provider of all things!!!
The Gospel of Jesus Christ didn’t stop at the cross and it doesn’t stop after this Easter week is over, Jesus rose, HE’S ALIVE!!!!!! Because HE’S ALIVE so are we daily as His LIFE dwells within us as believers! And if you’re reading this and you’re not a believer, you don’t know Jesus or this Gospel message of what He has done for you, get ready!!! The rest of the week I just want to take the beautiful story of Jesus, and the fact that HE’S ALIVE and dig in deeper and deeper into why this news of Jesus being our RISEN Savior is so awesome to us! I pray these messages along with this video to kick it off can really make you dig deeper and take some time to reflect on how awesome the fact that “He is RISEN” truly is! I pray that this becomes more than a story we hear or have heard a bunch of times but a truth that brings freedom and victory daily to our lives! I pray we find LIFE in the Gospel message! LIFE that is too daggum GOOD to limit to one day per year but a truth that gives us LIFE 365 days per year, every year for the rest of our lives!
