Best Friday!

So I woke up this morning and almost missed an opportunity to celebrate my identity! I wonder what meaning Easter has for people. For some people its Easter eggs and all the crap that America has made it to be. How can the significance of this day be reduced to such a thing? I missed service at my church which was at 11am but I made it to Grand Rapids First and it was pretty awesome. As I was sitting there listening to the pastor, it hit me all of a sudden that my identity as a believer is stemmed from this single act of kindness by someone who first loved me enough to go on the cross for me! Ah...what an amazing act! I've been thinking of this song most of the day even though up till today I still don't know all the lyrics. Thank goodness for search engines huh?...hehehe

Words and music by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend
In Christ alone my hope is found, He is my light, my strength, my song;This cornerstone, this solid ground, firm through the fiercest drought and storm.What heights of love, what depths of peace,When fears are stilled, when strivings cease.My comforter, my all in all, here in the love of Christ I stand.

In Christ alone, who took on flesh, fullness of God in helpless Babe!This gift of love and righteousness, scorned by the ones He came to save.‘Til on the cross as Jesus died, the wrath of God was satisfied.For ev’ry sin on Him was laid; here in the death of Christ I live.

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 pow’r of Christ in me;From life’s first cry to final breath, Jesus commands my destiny.No pow’r of hell, no scheme of man, can ever pluck me from His hand;‘Til He returns or calls me home, here in the pow’r of Christ I’ll stand!

I love the Best Friday!!!....

I can't help but wonder at the depth of love I feel when I ponder over these words! Thank you Jesus!
