Firstly happy late Easter!! I was recently listening to the Let it echo album by Jesus Culture and I discovered a song, it’s funny how these things work. Previously when I listened to the full album I didn’t really pay attention to this song. This song talks about Jesus dying on the cross and how hope is never lost, it is all about the Easter story. Coincidentally it was just the Easter weekend.
“There’s power in the cross, where You proved Your love. The only sacrifice strong enough to save us.”
There isn’t any other sacrifice that was strong enough to save us. There literally wasn’t anything else that could be done for us. God loved us so much that He was willing to give up His only son. He could’ve just left us alone but that’s the thing about God. He is so full of love and He is willing to do anything to save us, to give us a second chance. That’s something that really touches me because there are times when I don’t want to give something as simple as a chocolate away yet God the father was willing to send His only son to die for us. I guess that’s where you definitely see the difference. God is so full of love and He gives it unconditionally
“Love has made a way, hope is never lost. There’s power in the cross.”
This also gets to me because Jesus died for you and me. He was nailed to a cross, spat on, whipped just for you. He loved you so much. It’s not something to feel guilty about but rather something to treasure. The fact that he died on the cross means that hope is never lost, there is still light at the end of the tunnel. Trust me many a times it doesn’t feel like it but because He died on the cross hope is never lost.
