He is Risen

without comments

Paul Baloche has a new song for Resurrection Sunday. It is off his new Paul Baloche Live Album. Here’s a couple of lines I especially love:

Early morning break of dawn,
Stumbling to the tomb;
Standing awestruck wondering who
Rolled away the stone.
And as the sun came up,
Amazed, they looked inside and saw
An angel clothed in light;
“Don’t be afraid, He is alive!”

He is risen!

I love Jars of Clay, but of this group, I think I like “Mary and Joseph” and my favorite of the Christmas songs, “O Come O Come Emmanuel” — Merry Christmas and be blessed!

Sometimes you just have to share what you really like. I like Switchfoot, so here’s a little peak at coming attractions.



Uncomfortable intentionally! Yep.

On tiptoe anticipating joy!

without comments

This Sunday we celebrate joy! The long expected Jesus — the Messiah, the Son of God, the One who takes away the sins of the world, the One promised by prophets and Scripture — came in human flesh, God with us, Immanuel.

Peter tells us that angels stood on tiptoe trying to figure out exactly when Jesus, the fulfillment of all the hopes of God’s people, would actually occur:

The prophets who spoke of this outpouring of grace upon you diligently searched and inquired of the Lord about this salvation: to whom and to what time was the indwelling Spirit of the Anointed referring when He told them about the suffering of the Anointed and the honor that would follow it? 12The Spirit revealed to them they were not serving themselves but you. And you have learned from those who told you the good news by the Spirit that was sent down from heaven. Even the heavenly messengers would like to explore this news (1 Peter 1:10-12 The Voice).

So rejoice, the long expected One has come!
