Happy Resurrection Day!

Wide open, wide open
They nailed His arms wide open
After three days in the cold grave
The power of sin was broken!
Now with outstretched arms He welcomes in
Everyone who trusts in Him
His nail-scarred hands hold heaven's gates wide open!

HAPPY RESURRECTIONS DAY! Today we Christians celebrate Jesus' resurrection from the dead,
Per my Easter traditions, here is Petra's "He Came, He Saw, He Conquered."


He came alone into the battle
He knew nobody else could face His foe
He left His throne, He left His glory
He knew nobody else could ever go
He called the bluff, He took the challenge
He came into this world to seek and save
No one could know, no one could fathom
The way to win was only through the grave
They laid Him in His tomb
They thought they'd sealed His doom
But He rose
He rose!

He came, He saw, He conquered death and hell
He came, He saw, He is alive and well
He was, He is, and only He forgives
He died, He rose, He lives
He came, He saw, He conquered!

The doors were locked, they heard Him knocking
They were afraid they would be taken, too
Familiar voice said, "Come and follow"
Come and see the things the Lord can do
They went to where He lay
The stone was rolled away
He rose
He rose!


He came into this world
He saw humanity
He heard the SOS
He met the enemy
The enemy was conquered
The enemy was conquered!
From the NET Bible, Matthew 28, verses 1-10:

28:1 Now after the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb. 28:2 Suddenly there was a severe earthquake, for an angel of the Lord  descending from heaven came and rolled away the stone and sat on it. 28:3 His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. 28:4 The guards were shaken and became like dead men because they were so afraid of him. 28:5 But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. 28:6 He is not here, for he has been raised, just as he said. Come and see the place where he was lying. 28:7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples, ‘He has been raised from the dead. He is going ahead of you into Galilee. You will see him there.’ Listen, I have told you!” 28:8 So they left the tomb quickly, with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples. 28:9 But Jesus met them, saying, “Greetings!” They came to him, held on to his feet and worshiped him. 28:10 Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee. They will see me there.”

Happy Resurrection Day, everyone! As you celebrate today with family and friends, don't forget what we're truly celebrating: Jesus' Resurrection.

And because I love this song, I'll embed this one last video down here for you all to enjoy. It is Newsong's "Wide Open" - the same song I linked to up there.

Please enjoy, and have a great Resurrection Day.
