We praise You this day, Almighty God and Lord of All, for Jesus Christ was raised from the dead not just on the first Easter Day, but for all time. We praise You, Jesus, for defeating the powers of death; and we thank You for persisting with Your plan of Salvation until it was complete. Almighty God, what You have done transforms our lives! Jesus Christ, we stand in awe of Your resurrection! Come, Holy Spirit, come! ALLELUIA!
‘The Lord has done great things for us, and we are glad’ (Psalm 126:3)
We are glad because of the love of our God:
Jesus has been raised from the dead!
Angels have proclaimed the Good News!
satan has been roundly defeated!
Love has won a great victory over sin!
Mercy is triumphant over judgement!
Faith has been fully justified!
Grace has been shown in action!
We are glad because of the love of our God,
Which has been made known to us in Christ Jesus
Through His life, His death, and His glorious resurrection!
It is true! We believe, and we are saved: ALLELUIA
