The resurrection is so powerful and essential for us to grasp as believers. One song that exemplifies the power of the resurrection is “In Christ Alone” by Keith & Kristyn Getty.
In Christ alone, Who took on flesh,
Fullness of God in helpless babe!
This gift of love and righteousness,
Scorned by the ones He came to save.
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied;
For ev’ry sin on Him was laid—
Here in the death of Christ I live.
There in the ground His body lay,
Light of the world by darkness slain;
Then bursting forth in glorious day,
Up from the grave He rose again!
And as He stands in victory,
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me;
For I am His and He is mine—
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.
Christ’s life is summed up beautifully in these lyrics. We remember his humility in coming down to earth, his love in dying on the cross for us, and his victorious resurrection. Changing or disbelieving any part of that story nullifies all of it. We can move forward in confident faith, knowing our Savior lives.
