Easter Sunday at Grace Community

Easter Sunday at Grace was a powerful day.  As we reflected on the day at our staff meeting this morning we were, once again, blown away by what God did ... not only at our services, but simply what God has done for each of us through Jesus.  1 Corinthians 15:17 - 19 says "If Christ is not raised from the dead, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins.  Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost. If only for this life we have hope in Jesus we are to be pitied more than all men."  For me personally I was able to reflect on my life and the difference God has made in it.  One of the songs we sang in The Link was the song "In Christ Alone."  I was so moved by the lyrics, especially these ones:  

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave he rose again!
And as He stands in victory
Sin's curse has lost its grip on me,
For I am His and He is mine -
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

No guilt in life, no fear in death,
This is the power of Christ in me;
From life's first cry to final breath.
Jesus commands my destiny.
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home,
Here in the power of Christ I'll stand.

I am so thankful for what Jesus has done in my life and simply cannot imagine living life without Him by my side.  And, seeing all of the ones who made decisions for Jesus Sunday and knowing that they have the same hope in them now just thrills my soul!
