Because He Lives

Posted by: ZealousSheep

Matt Maher has a way of penning the thoughts of my heart–in lyrical phrases accompanied by music that stirs the soul–that fills me with gratitude because these songs help me to pray as a child before the Father. His newest song has just premiered : Because He Lives. An anthemic, soulful song calling us to recall our freedom in Christ Jesus, to declare “Credo: I believe!” Jesus, the conquerer of sin, death, fear and shame, has risen from the grave! And in Him, we too can rise to new life. My life is held in His hands and I have LIFE abundant because the Blood of Jesus has overcome sin and death in me!!!

Listen. Pray. Allow the power of Jesus to overcome in every corner of your heart so that you can cry “I’M ALIVE!” and mean it with every fiber of your being.

I believe in the Son
I believe in the risen One
I believe I overcome
By the power of His blood

Amen, Amen
I’m alive, I’m alive
Because He lives
Amen, Amen
Let my song join the one that never ends
Because He lives

I was dead in the grave
I was covered in sin and shame
I heard mercy call my name
He rolled the stone away

Because He lives
I can face tomorrow
Because He lives
Every fear is gone
I know He holds my life my future in His hands

MERCY

Jesus is always desiring to come near to us.
We often think He wants to condemn us, but that is a lie.
That is the enemy tricking us.
Jesus says “COME TO ME.”
Jesus wants to love us.
Jesus wants to show us mercy.
He spoke to a lady once:
“I love those who after a first fall come to Me for pardon…. I love them still more when they beg pardon for their second sin, and should this happen again, I do not say a million times, but a million million times, I still love them and pardon them, and I will wash in My Blood their last as fully as their first sin.”

I will wash in My Blood their last as fully as their first sin.

MERCY.
Sung by Allyson Prior, Grace to Love You is a fine example of the FACT that Jesus is more interested in coming near to us than condemning us, especially in the midst of our weak response.

RISE AND GO TO HIS HEART!
