You Brought Me Back to Life

     As I was resting last night listening to Citizen's new song, the Lord brought to my attention again the glorious simplicity within the gospel. The power of the gospel is salvation, new life, and hope in Jesus. I was immediately convicted of how my life is not always in fervent response to the greatness of Christ's sacrifice. Jesus gave us life: true life! How can we not daily love Him fully and be ever committed to Him. To understand the magnitude of what we have been given is a task for eternity; it is if we were blind and now we see, we were lame and now we walk, we were deaf and now we hear. Without continually musing upon these truths, it is so easy to lose sight of the simple beauty and glory that is in the gospel.

     As Paul says in Romans 1:16, "...for it (the gospel) is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes...". This great truth of salvation is sufficient to be worth our greatest devotion and thankfulness. As we spend Easter sunday remembering the sacrifice Jesus made and His glorious resurrection from the dead, let us not lose sight of the great price He paid, and the ultimate freedom we have gained through His sacrifice.

"But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy,  made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved". -Ephesians 2:4,5
