The advantage of having been a Christian for 46 years is the ability to look back on all the ways that the Lord has worked in my life. His faithfulness overwhelms me! And the more I contemplate how He has guided me, the more I trust Him to keep leading me.
This Resurrection Sunday, I’ve chosen a lesser known hymn to present to you. Although it’s not strictly about the Lord’s resurrection, it definitely highlights some of the ways we benefit from His having risen from His grave. Please enjoy this beautiful hymn and the glorious truths it proclaims.
On this Palm Sunday. we remember Christ’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem. At last, He allowed the crowds to proclaim Him as King of the Jews!
As glorious as that day was, I look forward to His return to Jerusalem, when He will take His throne and reign over the earth. Thankfully, even now we can worship Him as King. Today’s hymn gives us a good starting place.
In these past few weeks, I’ve been thinking a lot about the Trinity. Actually, my prayers increasingly celebrate all three Persons, focusing on each of their respective offices and functions. It’s been kind of exciting, and kind of fun, to pray with such a view of God in His various Persons.
The hymn I have chosen for today gives a vivid portrayal of God in each of His Persons, and I simply love the rich theology! As you listen, I pray that you will grow in your appreciation of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Hello. My name is DebbieLynne and, apart from the Lord Jesus Christ, I’m a sinner.
By His grace, the Lord doesn’t see my sinfulness, however. Jesus mercifully took my sins on Himself, accepting the Father’s wrath and (incredible as it may sound) covering me with His righteousness! He, therefore, is my hope. I can’t trust in myself to gain entrance into heaven, but I rest assured of salvation because of what He’s graciously done for me.
Today’s hymn celebrates Christ’s abundant grace in saving His own. As you listen, let your heart celebrate.
Sometimes, God’s goodness just overwhelms me, and all I want to do is praise Him! Fanny Crosby, who wrote so many magnificent hymns, must have felt that way when she wrote Praise Him, Praise Him, Jesus Our Blessed Redeemer, for the song explodes with rapid fire examples of the Lord’s wonderful nature and His goodness toward us. Listen to it and see if you can resist rejoicing.
In and of myself, nothing can commend me to God. He is eternally and perfectly holy, unstained by sin and completely pure. As much as I love Him, I have no ability to live up to His righteous standards. I long to live in that degree of holiness, I assure you, but I have no resources to do so in my own power.
Praise the Lord, Jesus Christ not only bore my sin on the cross, but He exchanged them for His righteousness! He graciously hides me from God’s wrath, promising me eternal life because of His death and resurrection. I hide myself in Him, confident that He will hold me in His righteousness.
