Because of this single promise found in Luke 18:33 “And they shall scourge him, and put him to death: and the third day he shall rise again” we can stand strong in His strength.
Because Jesus rose again….
We don’t have to fear tomorrow or face it alone
We have peace that surpasses all understanding
We are sons and daughters of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords
We can sing praises of your matchless love, grace and mercy
We can sleep knowing that should we never wake, the splendors of Heaven await us
We have hope that never ends, regardless of the darkness chasing us
We can take our greatest treasures with us to Heaven…our family and friends
We enjoy the majesty of this gift of life and the beauty you’ve filled it with
We can live an abundant life experiencing joy as only you can give
We can smile through tears, knowing that all things work together for good
We can stand strong in His strength and work though His power, not our own
We are refreshed by the daily renewing of His mercies
We are encouraged by His faithfulness
We know that every tear will be wiped away
We know that His love reaches us…..regardless
We know true, honest and pure love
We know that our God is greater
AND because a single promise was kept….
We are looking for the promised return, knowing it could be any moment… a twinkling of an eye
