Jesus Is Alive!
Posted by Memoirs Of A Yoruba Girl
Happy Easter Sunday!
On this beautiful day (the snow chilled for today) we celebrate the resurrection and the life of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ!!
I’m on placement (again) so I spent my Easter Sunday live streaming from the Mars Hill website and their Easter Sunday service. It was beautiful; a beautiful message about what Jesus Christ did for us on the cross of Calvary and how is being alive, even right now, gives us a hope and a future. I was able to watch some people declare their faith by getting baptised…live on air – amazing! Do check out Mars Hill (This isn’t a sponsored ad or anything…I just think they have an amazing church and have a real love for Christ!. They are live streaming services throughout today – so if you didn’t make church today…..check them out!
I feel this day is beautifully summarised in this beautiful song titled “In Christ Alone” (I’m sure you know it already!) Written by Stuart Townend and Keith Getty. My favourite verse (though I love them all) is the final and the second to last verse:
There in the ground His body lay,
Light of the world by darkness slain:
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave He rose again!
And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me,
For I am His and He is mine \”“
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.
No guilt in life, no fear in death,
This is the power of Christ in me;
From life’s first cry to final breath,
Jesus commands my destiny.
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home,
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand!
I think they sum up perfectly what we celebrate and remember today and what we hope for.
In light of today, I wanted to share with you a story I wrote a couple of years ago. It isn’t finished yet, but I felt it was appropriate for today. It is titled “The Love Story”, and it is Gods love story to us.
So please feel free to enjoy it and most importantly remember … God loves you !
Happy Easter Sunday Once Again
