Today is Resurrection Sunday!
I was awestruck at the beautiful purple and white flowers riding down the interstate on Friday.. Knowing that there is NO mistake that God wanted to display the symbolism on that Good Friday. That day the robe was purple, but today it is white, because he is risen as he said!!!
Oh, and Dennis pointed out this old DEAD tree that has been layin on the ground for over a week.. yet it still shows signs of being ALIVE…. it has grown these flowers.. after a week of being DEAD…. Hmm…..
I know of a Savior that ROSE from the DEAD…
… because he hung on that tree for me… Death no longer has a sting! ……
and I need to take freedom in that… Jesus’ death did more than buy me a seat in heaven, or give me a life of “prosperity” or give me a “get out of hell free” card….. Ya know why he hung on that tree?
TO ABSORB THE WRATH OF GOD ON MY BEHALF…..
I say Thank You- Jesus Christ-
.. and I live in freedom- he freed me from the sin!
and because of this, I can sing a NEW SONG:
…. Lose ALL the guilty stains, LOSE ALL the guilty stains, and now may I, though VILE as he, LOSE all the GUILTY stains! ……
….Oh to Grace how great a debtor……. Jesus SAVES!
.. And BURSTING forth in glorious day, UP FROM THE GRAVE HE ROSE AGAIN!--
NO GUILT IN LIFE, NO POWER OF DEATH- THIS IS THE POWER OF CHRIST IN ME-
HOW CAN I NOT SING TO YOU?- JESUS?
Yahweh- HOLY is YOUR name…..
…. O’ Glorious Day- This Jesus is MINE.
O’ Sinner--- I have been redeemed. Have You???
