Resurrection (A to Z Challenge, Letter R)

Christ, Redeemer, is my Righteousness.

Of my own, I have none…imperfect efforts

But IN HIM, I’m made Righteous before

God’s throne…I can stand without fear or

Shame, because I don’t stand alone.

Radiant Risen Lord and King, yet because

Of Relationship, I can Run into arms of

JESUS for anything and everything.

Resurrection is central truth of Gospel.

It demands Response…to believe

In our hearts, profess before men the

Reality that Jesus died on the cross

Was buried, and Resurrected…not

Resuscitated…HE LIVES, He’s Real.

He’s the Reason for my faith, my hope

For eternal life.  Reconciled with God, I

Have access to same power that Raised

Jesus from the dead…power to be His

Overcomer; victorious in soul’s battles

Triumphant in face of trials.  Where the

Spirit of the Lord is, there’s freedom

Peace, joy, love to share.

It’s a grand and righteous life…

Choose it if you dare!

Hope Resurrected (NaPoWriMo)

For Holy Saturday…

I will touch His hem, be healed…

Kneel at His cross, where Love did bleed.

I will pour from heart my tears and praise

Be lifted up…thus, hands to Him I raise.

For grace and mercy reign with Risen King

Hope resurrected, blessed Lord, I sing.

Dressed in radiance, my Savior lives…

Shed Blood covers sins, yes, Christ forgives.
