Easter

We celebrated a wonderful Easter Sunday with our families this past weekend. Our minister and song leader were used by the Holy Spirit to deliver an outstanding worship service and I was literally moved to tears as we sang Worthy is the Lamb. I am thankful that he who had no sin was sent to be sin for us so that in him we might become the righteousness of God (2 Corinthians 5:21)....the righteousness of God. When I think of myself and my inadequacies, I cannot imagine being the embodiment of the righteousness of God. But that is the amazing gift of grace that God gave us through Christ, his sacrifice and his resurrection.

Thank you for the cross, Lord.
Thank you for the price you paid.
Bearing all my sin and shame
In love you came
And gave amazing grace

Thank you for this love, Lord.
Thank you for the nail pierced hands.
Washed me in your cleansing flow
Now all I know
Your forgiveness and embrace

Worthy is the Lamb
Seated on the Throne
Crown you now with many crowns
You reign victorious
High and lifted up
Jesus, Son of God
The darling of Heaven, Crucified
Worthy is the Lamb
Worthy is the Lamb

I absolutely love that song. I'm sure I would have been moved to tears as well. Actually, just reading the words made me tear up. God is so good!
