He is risen, He is risen indeed!!

Happy Easter dear friends!
Today is the most joyous day (after his birth) all year for me as a Christian, it is the day that Jesus defied death and confirmed all the prophecies that a Savior could come to save the world, literally. 
Because my Father, the One who created me and knows me better than I know myself loved me and everyone in the world so much that He didn't want to be separated from any of us, He sent His son, Jesus to be the bridge so the separation could be closed. Jesus, the only man to ever walk this earth who can be described as absolutely perfect and did not possess the ability to sin because it wasn't in his nature, was the sacrifice, the blood that needed to be spilled so I and anyone who accepts this awesome gift can be re-united with God forever in heaven. 
Today is the day we celebrate that Jesus rose again 3 days after his death, to show to the world how much the Creator of everything loves his children, you and me and and how much God wanted his children to have a fully committed relationship with Him
To me, the song Glorious Day (Living He Loved Me) by Casting Crowns is the perfect song to sing on this amazing day.



Here are the lyrics to the song just because the message of Easter is so important.
One day when Heaven was filled with His praises
One day when sin was as black as could be
Jesus came forth to be born of a virgin
Dwelt among men, my example is He
Word became flesh and the light shined among us
His glory revealed

Living, He loved me

Dying, He saved me
Buried, He carried my sins far away
Rising, He justified freely forever
One day He’s coming
Oh glorious day, oh glorious day

One day they led Him up Calvary’s mountain

One day they nailed Him to die on a tree
Suffering anguish, despised and rejected
Bearing our sins, my Redeemer is He
Hands that healed nations, stretched out on a tree
And took the nails for me

One day the grave could conceal Him no longer

One day the stone rolled away from the door
Then He arose, over death He had conquered
Now He’s ascended, my Lord evermore
Death could not hold Him, the grave could not keep Him
From rising again

One day the trumpet will sound for His coming

One day the skies with His glories will shine
Wonderful day, my Beloved One, bringing
My Savior, Jesus, is mine

Oh, glorious day
