Living He loved me, dying He saved me
And buried He carried my sins far away
Rising He justified freely forever
One day He’s coming, oh, glorious day, oh, glorious day
Lyrics from Casting Crowns, Glorious Day
Anyone can die for the good of another but being raised from the dead is a different story. Jesus’ resurrection tells me God was pleased with his sacrifice. If he had not been pleased, if Jesus had not been the perfect sacrifice, God would not have declared the sacrifice as good. This would have left me doomed for eternal separation from God. Being raised from the dead is proof of God’s pleasure with his son’s sacrifice. Because I’m in Christ, God is pleased with me too. This song is a great reminder that the justification Jesus bought assures me that if I belong to him, I will exist in the eternal presence of God, as his dear daughter, no matter what.
Living Outside the Lines rests in the risen Savior.
Can you rest in the payment Jesus made?
Did Jesus pay for all your sins or only the ones you’re willing to admit?
