Happy Easter!

Recently, I have been meditating on the song "O Praise the Name" by Hillsong:

1. I cast my mind to Calvary
    Where Jesus bled and died for me
    I see his wounds, his hands, his feet
    My Savior on that cursed tree.

2. His body bound and drenched in tears
    They laid him down in Joseph's tomb
    The entrance sealed by heavy stone
    Messiah still and all alone.

    O praise the name of the Lord our God
    O praise his name forevermore
    For endless days we will sing your praise
    O Lord, O Lord our God

3. Then on the third at break of dawn
    The Son of Heaven rose again
    O trampled death, where is your sting?
    The angels roar for Christ is King.

4. He shall return in robes of white
    The blazing sun shall pierce the night
    And I will rise among the saints
    My gaze transfixed on Jesus' face.

The greatest tragedy has become our greatest victory. Christ has risen, defeated death, and reigns on high. To him be the glory!

"Death has been swallowed up in victory. Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting? The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." (1 Corinthians 15:54-57)

May you celebrate victory in Christ this Easter and all through the year!
