He Lives Within My Heart Apr 08 2012


"Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; He has risen!" - Luke 24:5b-6a

What is the one single act that defined Christianity? The virgin birth? The revolutionary philosophies of Jesus Christ? The great miracles - feeding of the 5,000, turning water into wine, healing the sick? While all of these acts of Christ certainly set Him above any other person who has ever walked the earth, nothing compares to His death and resurrection from the dead. Through His death, Jesus gave His life to pay the penalty of my sin. Through His resurrection, He conquered sin and death, and gives us that power, as well. And today, we celebrate this wonderful moment and the joyous consequences that stemmed from it.

When I contemplate the amazing grace that exploded from His resurrection, I find myself humming, then singing some of the words to one of the classic hymns, He Lives!


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!


He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today!
He walks with me; He talks with me along life's narrow way.


He lives, He lives, salvation to impart!
You ask me how I know He lives,
He lives within my heart.


Happy Resurrection Day!
