We Serve a Risen Saviour

I serve a risen Savior
He's in the world today. 
I know that He is living, 
Whatever men may say. 
I see His hand of mercy;
I hear His voice of cheer;
And just the time I need Him
He's always near. 

He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today!
He walks with me and talks with me along life's narrow way. 
He lives, He lives, salvation to impart! 
You ask me how I know He lives? 
He lives within my heart. 

In all the world around me 
I see His loving care, 
And though my heart grows weary, 
I never will despair;
I know that He is leading,
Through all the stormy blast;
The day of His appearing 
Will come at last. 

He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today! 
He walks with me and talks with me along life's narrow way. 
He lives, He lives, salvation to impart! 
You ask me how I know He lives?
He lives within my heart. 

Rejoice, rejoice, O Christian,
Life up your voice and sin
Eternal hallelujahs to Jesus Christ the King!
The hope of all who seek Him,
The help of all who find, 
None other is so loving, 
So good and kind. 

He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today!
He walks with me and talks with me along life's narrow way.
He lives, He lives, salvation to impart!
You ask me how I know He lives? 
He lives within my heart. 

This song is such a great reminder that we love and serve a Saviour who has risen and is alive! Romans 1:3-4 "Concerning His Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh; And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:"

1 Corinthians 15:13-20
"But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen: And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain. Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not. For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised: And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins. Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished. If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable. But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept." 

Because Jesus conquered death by rising on the third day, our faith has a solid foundation. 

Isaiah 25:8 "He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away off all the earth: for the Lord hath spoken it." 

Isaiah 53:12 "Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors." 

Romans 5:10 "For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life."

1 Corinthians 5:21- "For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead." The first Adam sinned and now death has been passed upon all men. The second Adam, Christ, brought life by rising from the dead. Alleluia!  And one day, death will be destroyed and life will reign for ever because Jesus Christ is eternal. 
1 Corinthians 15:26 "The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death."

1 Corinthians 15:54-56 "So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grace, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ."

We have a sweet promise in Revelation chapter 1 that says the Lord is he that liveth, and was dead; and now he is alive for evermore. 

Hope you had a blessed resurrection Easter Sunday as we rejoice in the living Lord!
