Happy Easter! He is Risen!

Christ and His triumph over death is what we celebrate today and every day! He has redeemed my soul from the pit of emptiness, He has redeemed my soul from death.

Easter is not about getting all dressed up or Easter egg hunts or eating ham. Those are all great and so fun, in fact I’m sharing some family photos below but really—Today is about celebrating the Great Rescue story. The God who spoke the universe into existence, the one who commands the waves and controls the weather, put on flesh and came down to US and being our ransom and take our sentence, reuniting us back to Him.

The Great Rescue Story

“Christ Is Risen”

Let no one caught in sin remain*
Inside the lie of inward shame
We fix our eyes upon the cross
And run to him who showed great love
And bled for us
Freely you bled, for us

Christ is risen from the dead
Trampling over death by death
Come awake, come awake!
Come and rise up from the grave!

Christ is risen from the dead
We are one with him again
Come awake, come awake!
Come and rise up from the grave!

Beneath the weight of all our sin
You bow to none but heavens will
No scheme of hell, no scoffer’s crown
No burden great can hold you down
In strength you reign
Forever let your church proclaim

Oh death! Where is your sting?
Oh hell! Where is your victory?
Oh Church! Come stand in the light!
The glory of God has defeated the night!

Oh death! Where is your sting?
Oh hell! Where is your victory?
Oh Church! Come stand in the light!
Our God is not dead, he’s alive! he’s alive!

Christ is risen from the dead
Trampling over death by death
Come awake, come awake!
Come and rise up from the grave
Christ is risen from the dead
We are one with him again
Come awake, come awake!
Come and rise up from the grave

Rise up from the grave…
