Yesterday, I was listening to an album of hymns sung by Alabama. As I sang along to “Because He Lives” it struck me. That’s it!
”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”
That is the answer to all of life’s difficult questions. That is the antidote to all of life’s anxieties. That is the motivation to push through all of life’s struggles. Jesus Christ willingly surrendered His life on the cross on our behalf to pay the penalty for our past, present, and future sins. However, the story does not end there. He did not stay in that grave. He rose again conquering death for us! We are not bound by this life. We have hope! He conquered death, we can defeat what ever this life throws at us. We have resurrection power and the beautiful hope of heaven. “Because He Lives” is the reason we can endure anything. “Because He Lives” is why we live joyously. “Because He Lives” is our rallying cry! Pray you live with this resolve…today and always!
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. 1 Peter 1:3
