He is Alive!!!

 
 
Everyone once and awhile I hear a song that speaks to the deepest parts of me. Right now, that song is Forever (Live) by Kari Jobe. As Easter approaches I cant help but think about the tremendous sacrifice that Jesus made for mankind. I feel overwhelmed with gratitude and wonder. As tears pour down my cheeks my daughters ask "why are you crying mom".  I am crying because I am so thankful for what Jesus did for me. He is so good!
 
"Forever"

One final breath He gave
As Heaven looked away
The Son of God was laid in darkness
A battle in the grave
The war on death was waged
The power of hell forever broken
The ground began to shake
The stone was rolled away
His perfect love could not be overcome
Now death where is your sting
Our resurrected King has rendered you defeated
Forever, He is glorified
Forever, He is lifted high
Forever, He is risen
He is alive
He is alive



I recently watched The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe with my girls and loved being able to explain how Jesus is like the lion in the film. He took our penalty upon himself so that we would be freed, just as he offered himself as a sacrifice in exchange for Edmund's  freedom. 
 
Anyone can die for a cause, and there have been many martyrs throughout history, but only Jesus had the power to resurrect himself from the grave and break the power of sin over mankind. And that is why I sing "Hallelujah the lamb has overcome" at the top of my lungs!!!!!
