Resurrection Sunday

“The angel said to the women, ‘Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.'”
– Matthew 28:5-6 NIV

Happy Easter!

Today is a day of remembering victory. By rising on the third day Jesus proved that He is Lord over death and sin. It is because we worship a Risen Lord who is alive that we have life. If our beliefs were like every other religion, which all have founders that remain dead, then our faith would be meaningless and our efforts in vain. But, this is not the case! The God whom we serve is alive and well! He is Risen! He is Risen indeed! The good news of Easter Sunday is the very reason for it: the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! It is because of His life, sacrifice, death, and resurrection that we have any hope in eternal life or drawing near to God. Praise be to Him! Let us live our lives in proper response to this amazing God who gave Himself up as a ransom for many!

Our hope is that the previous songs can help you in this time of reflecting on Good Friday and Easter and what they really mean. We suggest listening to each song and really meditating on what it means. Have an ear open for God to speak to you while you partake in listening and meditating on these songs and Himself. Find some Scriptures that relate to Good Friday/Easter, or maybe to something that you’re going through, and really meditate on what God wants to communicate to you. May He bless you in this time!

Holy Week

Those who went ahead and those who followed shouted,
“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”
– Mark 11:9 NIV

Today we begin the journey of remembering and celebrating Holy Week, the week in which Jesus entered Jerusalem. During this week several key things occurred:

  • Jesus entered Jerusalem on a donkey and was welcomed as coming from God
  • Judas Iscariot betrayed Jesus and brought Roman guards to arrest Him
  • Jesus was sentenced to be crucified, died on a cross, and was put into a grave
  • On the third day, Jesus rose from the grave proving that He is Lord over sin and death

All of these events have significance to our lives. It is because these events actually occurred as history that we have salvation. If they were mere myths, our salvation would not be real. It is because God chose to step down into our history and be a man and go through all of these events that we have salvation. The Creator of everything made the decision to be one of the created in bodily form and allow His creations to crucify Him on a cross. But, that wasn’t the end of things – He conquered sin and death by rising again! Wow…what a God we serve!

We hope this week you’ll take some time to reflect on what Jesus has done for you, and that you’ll have a renewed sense of purpose from doing so. We worship a marvelous God who is infinitely worth more than the worship we give Him! Let us never forget that!

Later this week we’ll post some links highlighting several songs that specifically contain Holy Week and Easter related themes. Our hope is that they’ll serve to help you draw closer to God! So, stay tuned for those!

Also, we are planning on giving you all a special treat on Easter Sunday! It’s a finding that we’ve been saving for a short while for a special occasion and Easter fits this exactly! So, please come back here to get these special gifts!

May God bless you this week and don’t forget to share the joy of Christ with those who don’t know Him!
