My husband shared this video with me a few weeks ago and it so deeply moved me. I have been listening on repeat. So much truth and hope presented.
I think this season of life has really taught me about what the gospel truly means. Jesus died that we might live. That we might be free from sin, from hate, from jealousy, from all bitterness. For so long I held on to the fact that Jesus was my savior. I praised him and proclaimed his word to be true. I lived out the walk as I could, reading the bible, talking about his goodness, but I was still in bondage in my heart. It was not until these past few months, through those pesky "life interruptions" did I realize I was the walking wounded. I have held onto hurts and allowed them to hinder my understanding of the love of God and his love for me. You guys, he died to set us FREE! Completely free. He is so much greater than the bitterness. His love is so much greater than the shame. Once I decided to walk into his love and walk out his magnificent love onto others, I realized I don't have the right to the pain anymore. I have the right to lavished love. I have the right to freedom. The gospel isn't just overcoming our past, it's victory concerning our future! And I choose it. I pray today that this song might impact your heart like it did mine. (6 min on is the best!)
"So it's not just words that I proclaim. For my words point to The Word, and The Word has a name. Hope has a name. Joy has a name. Peace has a name. Love has a name. And that name is Jesus Christ. Praise his name forever!"
Happy Resurrection Day!
