How wonderful, how marvelous, is Your love, Jesus! To think that You
were willing to go through that for me!
What a day of rejoicing that must have been when:
You arose and realized it was all over
You had won the victory!
You had accomplished Your mission.
You had made the way for the world to be saved.
You had gone through the horrors of Hell and death for us, and it was
You arose in victory, joy, liberation and freedom from the hands of evil
men, never to have to go through that again... and You did it all to
spare us the same.
Now we can say with the apostle Paul, "O death, where is your sting? O
Hades [grave], where is your victory?" (1 Corinthians 15:55-57).
As I think of the seemingly terrible defeat that You suffered and how it
resulted in such a tremendous victory, it fills me with wonder and gives
me such hope and peace. Surely You and Your love will see me through
whatever troubles may come my way, from now till eternity!
