Because...

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I praise God each and every day.  But, being SONday, I'll once again be going to worship Him with fellow believers.

I'll be heading out to church, to worship.  While there, I know I'll worship Him in spirit and in truth.  And, of course, with music.

One thing I am praising God for, is that Jesus died, was resurrected and is alive in Heaven.  He's seated at the right hand of God.

And, because He lives, so will we who believe upon Him.

Thinking of this, brought to mind a song that you probably know.  It's called Because He Lives.  Here's a link to listen:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4M-zwE33zHA.  And, here are the lyrics:

Because He Lives - Songwriters: GAITHER, BILL / GAITHER, GLORIA / DAMICO, ALCEU
 
God sent His son, they called Him, Jesus;
He came to love, heal and forgive;
He lived and died to buy my pardon,
An empty grave is there to prove my Savior lives!
Chorus
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow,
Because He lives, all fear is gone;
Because I know He holds the future,
And life is worth the living,
Just because He lives!

How sweet to hold a newborn baby,
And feel the pride and joy he gives;
But greater still the calm assurance:
This child can face uncertain days because He Lives!
Chorus
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow,
Because He lives, all fear is gone;
Because I know He holds the future,
And life is worth the living,
Just because He lives!

And then one day, I'll cross the river,
I'll fight life's final war with pain;
And then, as death gives way to vict'ry,
I'll see the lights of glory and I'll know He lives!
Chorus
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow,
Because He lives, all fear is gone;
Because I know He holds the future,
And life is worth the living,
Just because He lives!
 
And life is worth the living,
Just because He lives!
 
Yes, because He lives, I can face tomorrow!  I praise God for this!

Without Jesus dying for our sin, we would not have everlasting life available to us.  But He did die for us, and provided for us.

Just as God told us in John 3:16, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

How grateful I am that God created a plan of salvation for us.  How thankful I am that Jesus was obedient to God the Father's plan of redemption for us.

Thank You, Lord... for giving Yourself, so that a wretched sinner like me, could be saved from eternity in Hell, by simply believing upon You.

If you do not yet know Jesus as Your Lord and Saviour, come to Him, today.  Tomorrow, may be too late.


Until next time...
