Happy Friday friends. As we are nearing the celebration of Christ resurrection and all that means for us, I thought it appropriate to reshare something I had written.
BURIED IN HIM
Today marks the day we remember them crucifying Jesus
and carrying Him away to be buried in the tomb.
When I think of the word “bury”, heaps of dirt marking a fresh grave comes to mind.
To bury marks an ending of what was and memorializes what now ceases to be.
When they crucified my Lord, they had no idea what significance that would be
to someone like you and me.
How could they have known that precious seed
would serve to set so many free
I heard a man of God say the most dangerous thing you can do to a seed is to bury it.
For there its greatest potential is released.
Beneath the ground beyond what they could see,
God was preparing a way for you and me.
Because they buried Him and He rose again,
my sins and bondages no longer have the power to imprison me.
When they buried Him, they made resurrection available to me
When they closed the tomb that day, they couldn’t fathom
the way of escape made possible on that eventful day.
Because he was bruised and battered, there’s healing here now for me
Because He was buried, I can now live freely
Now to my recommended reads for your weekend:
I don’t know about you but I have those moments when I wonder has God forgotten about me. If you find yourself experiencing one those moment’s, swing by Barbie’s He Remembered Me
One of the things I’ve come to love about God is that he uses the ordinary mundane tasks of life to teach us. I just loved the lessons Kalley shared in 5 Hair Lessons on Life.
LaVonne had me looking at the account of Naomi and Ruth with fresh eyes this week when I read Lent 2014: Kiss.
