There in the ground His body lay,
Light of the world by darkness slain:
Then bursting forth in glorious day
Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin's curse has lost its grip on me,
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ
No guilt in life, no fear in death,
This is the power of Christ in me
From life's first cry to final breath,
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand
Till He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I'll stand.
- Keith Getty & Stuart Townend
Jesus Christ is risen. The Lamb that was slain from the creation of the world (Rev 13:8) has risen to reign! Our salvation was graciously decided even before our world came into existence.
Each one of us who would put our faith in Jesus Christ is saved from sin and its penalty. Having now been saved, how then shall we live?
Shall we not live in purity and obedience with our feet firmly planted in the enduring Word of God?
Shall we not live in deep and abounding love for God and His people?
Shall we not give Him our all?
