Wednesday's Words of Wisdom 4/4/12



"For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God."  2 Corinthians 5:21

This week we celebrate the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ!  As a Christian, I feel like we often forget the importance of holidays such as Christmas and Easter.  It's so easy to take things for granted and forget the awe and wonder that come along with these miraculous events!  Jesus Christ became sin for us.  He died on the cross for our sins.  He was buried.  And then....He rose again!  That doesn't just happen every day.  His resurrection is a miracle that we should still celebrate with just as much awe and wonder as we did the first day we accepted Christ.  

If you're a Christian, you remember that day well.  The day you admitted your sins and asked God to forgive you.  Remember that automatic sense of awe, wonder, amazement that overcame you?  Remember the burden that just lifted from your shoulders?  It's good to stop and think about that once in awhile.  Don't forget the awesome work Jesus did in your life.  Instead, stop this week, and remember what He did for you.  Remember how He washed away your sins and gave you eternal life!  We serve an awesome God, and we need to act like it instead of acting like it was just no big deal.


The song "Jesus Messiah" by Chris Tomlin is one of my all-time favorites!  I just had to include the lyrics below:

He became sin
Who knew no sin
That we might become His Righteousness
He humbled himself and carried the cross

Love so amazing
Love so amazing

Jesus Messiah
Name above all names
Blessed Redeemer
Emmanuel
The rescue for sinners
The ransom from Heaven
Jesus Messiah
Lord of all

His body the bread
His blood the wine
Broken and poured out all for love
The whole earth trembled
And the veil was torn

Love so amazing
Love so amazing yeah

Jesus Messiah
Name above all names
Blessed Redeemer
Emmanuel
The rescue for sinners
The ransom from Heaven
Jesus Messiah
Lord of all

All our hope is in You
All our hope is in You
All the glory to You God
The light of the world

Jesus Messiah
Name above all names
Blessed Redeemer
Emmanuel
The rescue for sinners
The ransom from Heaven
Jesus Messiah
Lord of all
