Dwelling on lyrics of uplifting music is something I find so encouraging and amazing. One of my favorite songs currently and for a while has been Forever by Kari Jobe. The words are so incredible in their message.
“Forever he is glorified, forever he is lifted high.
Forever he is risen. He is alive! He is alive!”
If you have never heard the song I strongly recommend you listen to it. The powerful ballad gives an amazing light unto Jesus’ astounding sacrifice for us. His resurrection is often dulled down and we forget the awe and wonder that Jesus is Risen! He defeated death. The sting of the cross is gone, Hell has no victory.
This spring and even after Easter, have hope in remembrance that our Lord has already won!
“The ground began to shake, the stone was rolled away.
His perfect love could not be overcome.
Now death where is your sting.
Our resurrected King has rendered you defeated.”
Take heart, I have overcome the world. (John 16:33)
