Easter Devotional

I don’t know if I can say it any better than this song by Jars of Clay:

O come and mourn with me awhile

O come and mourn with me awhile
O come near to the Savior’s side
O come together, let us mourn
Jesus our Lord is crucified

Seven times He spoke
Seven words of love
And all three hours His silence cried
For mercy on the souls of men
Jesus our Lord is crucified

O love of God, O sin of man
In this dread act your strength is tried
And victory remains with love
Jesus our Lord is crucified

O break, O break hard heart of mine
My weak self-love and guilty pride
His Pilate and His Judas were
Jesus our Lord is Crucified

O love of God, O sin of man
In this dread act your strength is tried
And victory remains with Love
Jesus our Lord is crucified

O come and mourn with awhile

A broken heart, a fount of tears
Ask and they will not be denied
A broken heart love’s cradle is
Jesus our Lord is crucified
Jesus our Lord is crucified
Jesus our Lord is crucified

Our Lord is crucified
And victory remains with love
Jesus our Lord is crucified

O love of God, O sin of man
In this dread act your strength is tried
And victory remains with love
Jesus our Lord is crucified

As we all go through this time before Easter, whether you observe Lent, or give up something to observe Jesus’ fast in the desert, may you go thru this time remembering WHY he had to die.  May we all remember just how sinful man is, and that within ourselves is NO way to cleanse our soul.  May we flee to the cross and to Jesus to thank him for his sacrifice and to beg for His forgiveness and the pardon only He can give.  May we be reminded of the Holiness of God that cannot be pleased by the soul of sinful man and flee to the righteousness of Christ where we can hide.

But, PRAISE GOD, He did not stay in that tomb of man.  He AROSE.  Because He arose, we have hope.

 

Happy Easter.
