Perfect love could not be overcome

Standard

file0001219066109Whether you believe the resurrection is fact or fiction, what happened on that day two thousand years ago reaches through history and touches the present. For some, that touch is irrelevant whilst yet others have corrupted the message of redemptive, unconditional love into a lust for power and control over the freewill of those who choose not to believe. For me? Each day I live, that touch amazes me more.

The moon and stars they wept
The morning sun was dead
The Saviour of the world was fallen
His body on the cross
His blood poured out for us
The weight of every curse upon Him

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 would not be overcome
Now death where is your sting?
Our resurrected King
Has rendered you defeated

[Chorus]
Forever He is glorified
Forever He is lifted high
(And) Forever He is risen
He is alive, He is alive

We sing Hallelujah, we sing Hallelujah
We sing Hallelujah
The Lamb has overcome

  1. Happy Easter, Julia. I am happy to see that you can still manifest such a strong indomitable faith in Christ in these times when opposition against him is growing exponentially. Keep up, my dear, you are very strong, very brave.

    • Thanks, Cheryl. And Jesus’, as the living word, defeat of death and the hope that brings for those who believe is a constant source of wonder. Life and the world can never look the same. Happy Easter to you and those you love.

    • Hi Timothy. Happy Easter to you and yours too. I’m much better thanks – still feeble energy levels but improving. Beth is really good too. She’s making decisions about her future and is really happy.
