HE IS RISEN!
I know I'm a day late, but I wanted to wish you all a Happy Easter! My boy Sam loves to draw, especially with pencil and charcoal, and he gave me this picture that he sketched....thought I'd share it with you along with the lyrics to one of my favorite songs. Sometimes songs can say what I can't find the words to say.....
How deep the Father's love for us,
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure
How great the pain of searing loss,
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the chosen One,
Bring many sons to glory
Behold the Man upon a cross,
My sin upon His shoulders
Ashamed I hear my mocking voice,
Call out among the scoffers
It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I know that it is finished
I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no power, no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection
Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom
(song by Stuart Townend)
HE IS RISEN! HE IS RISEN, INDEED!
