The Story con't...

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave He rose again

And as He stands in victory
Sin's curse has lost its grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ

No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From a life's first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny

No power of hell, no scheme of man
Could ever pluck me from His hand
Til He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I stand

-"In Christ Alone"

About the time when the band quiets down and all you hear is the bass drum keeping beat...and then they start in with "...there in the ground" Jen, TJ (friends in college) and I would look at each other and start to pump our fists. It was a bit of a joke, but really it was just so powerful that we couldn't help but celebrate. "Up from the grave He rose again!" was the best part of the song.

Not because it's a good song... but because it's truth. Jesus didn't stay in the ground (cave/tomb/whichever...) he rose 3 days later and sin lost it's curse on me. and you.

Happy Easter.
