Hello my friends!
So, i want to change it up a bit, and share a song that has rock’n my world!
Check it out!
In every way, we can not escape the meaning and gravity of the gospel. It speaks to us constantly, we just have to open our ears and catch that glimpse of heaven.
Have you ever been to movie where a hero against all odds overcomes adversity to defeat and destroy a evil that was putting everyone in mortal danger? Well of course you have! We go to countless movies like these. We love these movies. From Lord of the Rings to Harry Potter to Avengers. They engage our hearts and speak to us. They get us excited and when its all over we leave the movie satisfied! This is a glimpse of the gospel! Beneath all the graphics, characters, plot there is a reflection of the greatest story ever told! The story of us! The story of a people fallen from a great kingdom and with no hope of return. The story of how the king of these people choose to fall with them and against all odds rose above the evil that enslaved His people, winning His return to the throne and the return of His people to His kingdom! Doesn’t that sound EPIC!? This is who we are! We are hard wired to connect to stories such as these.
When I hear this song, it reminds me of that part in a movie where the hero walks away from the final battle triumphantly. He stands in glory holding the one he loves and then the credits start to roll. We are the loved ones He fought, died and rose again for! God has won it all for us and for His glory! He deserves all the praise, all the honor, all the glory! This song tells His story and it means everything to us!
Be encouraged my friends, we are loved far more abundantly and fiercely than we could ever imagine. We have a King of Heaven that fights for us and welcomes us into his kingdom eternal. There is hope and there is love for us all. We belong. And we are a part of the greatest story ever told!
