Easter Morning

IMG_4695IMG_4724IMG_4740IMG_4726IMG_4753“For every curse, you’re the cure
For every sickness, you’re the healer
For every storm, you’re the calm
For all that’s lost, oh, what a savior”

“On that cross of calvary
Every burden has been defeated
Every wretched heart redeemed
You drown our sins in seas of crimson”

“Hallelujah death is beaten
Christ has risen from the grave
Hallelujah it is finished
All to you the highest praise”

“Where there was sin your love rushed in
Where sin runs deep your grace runs deeper
For all enslaved the ransom paid
Light of the world, yours is the power”

Seas of Crimson

Ever since I have been little I have loved Christmas.  I loved the magic of it and the fact that it was the moment the greatest miracle was put into motion.  The miracle that would find its completion years later on Easter morning.   There is a song by Wes Hampton that’s chorus goes, “Oh what if Sunday had not come?  What if the sun had never dawned?  What if eternity, was eternally gone?  What if the One who came to save, had never risen from the grave?  What if Sunday had not come?”  I love this song because it points out one very important thing, if Jesus had died on the cross and everything had ended there, everything we as Christians believe is in vain.  Without Easter Sunday, Jesus is just another man in history who died a cruel and violent death at the hands of the Roman government.  However, Jesus was not just another man and Easter Sunday did come.  As the sun rose that morning, hope of eternity rose with it as Jesus came back from the dead, victorious over the grave and providing a way for us to spend eternity in heaven.  As the lyrics from Sea of Crimson say above, Where there was sin your love rushed in, For all enslaved the ransom paid.  Because of Easter morning, our ransom was paid and we can now be free to spend eternity in Heaven if we choose to accept the gift God has given us.

Happy Easter!
