And Then Sunday Dawned!

As our church choir has prepared for our resurrection Sunday service we have rehearsed, practiced, prepared a service all about the resurrection of Christ through songs.  There is one song, since the very first time we sang this song it was my favorite.  The words are incredibly powerful and I fell in love with this song from the start.

The beginning of the song starts out saying, “Hear the heart of heaven beating, ‘Jesus Saves’ and the hush of mercy breathing, ‘Jesus Saves'”!

The first time I listened to those words I just imagined the host of angels in Heaven saying, “Please accept Him as your Savior!  Please!” they plead.  Can you almost hear it?  Just accept Him!!

Later on in the song another verse says, “He will die our burden bearing. Jesus saves. Jesus saves. ‘It is done!’ will shout the cross, ‘Christ has paid redemption’s cost!”

Are you ready for this next part?  This, yes, THIS is what Easter {or Resurrection Sunday as I like to refer to it} is ALL about!  It says,

“While the EMPTY TOMB’S declaring, ‘JESUS SAVES!!'”

Hallelujah!!!  He AROSE!  THIS is the reason we celebrate!

Jesus Christ conquered the GRAVE, overcame DEATH!  Yes, MY Savior LIVES!

I am moved to tears when I ponder the love expressed to the world, to me!  He died so that we ALL could have salvation through HIM!

The song continues, “Freedom’s calling, chains are falling, hope is dawning bright and true.  Day is breaking, night is quaking.  God is making all things new.  Jesus Saves!!”

Oh my friend, do you know that freedom? Have your chains fallen off?  Has Christ made you NEW?  Oh He wants to!  He longs to!  The heart of Heaven is beckoning out to YOU!  Receive Him!  Claim Him as your Savior!!

Romans 3:23 says,

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; “

Then Romans 6:23 states,

“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. “

There is hope!  There is a free gift just waiting for YOU! Ephesians 2:8-9 declares,

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Oh friend, I am so thankful to serve a RISEN Savior! I am SO thankful that He is still saving souls!  Let TODAY be the day YOU accept Him as your Savior if you have not already done so!

There is plenty of reason to rejoice my friend, Christ is ALIVE!!
