I Love...

Psalm 73, 77 and 78 are the passages highlighted for today and I love that on this glorious Resurrection Sunday, these verses speak of the greatness of God and the confidence we have in a Lord who is unchanging.

This morning, we celebrated our Risen Savior at a service held at a local amphitheater. The thing about being outdoors as opposed to inside a building for me was that the morning's brisk breeze seemed to whisper reminders that Jesus lives--and breathes the fresh wind of his saving mercy onto all who believe.

I love that God confirms his victory over death through his Holy Word.

I love that the flowering foliage that decorates the springtime horizon paints a picture of the recreative, renewing work of our Master Designer.

I love that my Lord conquered death when he rose on the third day, paving the way for all who will call on Him to be saved.

With the Psalmist, I rejoice in these words from Psalm 77, and I love that so many years ago they were penned as a beautiful reminder to us for all time:

13 O God, your ways are holy.
Is there any god as mighty as you?
14 You are the God of great wonders!
You demonstrate your awesome power among the nations.
15 By your strong arm, you redeemed your people,
the descendants of Jacob and Joseph

We who have received the gift of Grace by faith in our Risen Lord have been redeemed by the blood of the God who is mighty--whose great wonders demonstrate his power among the nations! Praise You Lord for Eternal Life in Christ our Savior! I love you.
