We sang that song at our wedding, and that is one reason it will always hold a special place in my heart. The other (and significantly more important) reason is this:
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
I listened to an old podcast by Ben Stuart this morning and he was saying that a lot of times our response to the fact that 'He is risen!' is 'Yeah ok.' So may we spend this Easter with a true response of excitement for the fact that we serve the one and only God who is risen, and an appreciation for the sacrifices it took to get there.
Happy Easter friends! He is risen!
And speaking of weddings... Congratulations to Elijah and Krista! We are so excited for you!
