Our community group spent some time last week just reading through Luke 24 and talking about the Resurrection of Jesus. It’s a wonderful, beautiful and strange story. Jesus is viscerally present in body and spirit – he walks, and talks, and eats….yet on the other hand he is otherly and beyond the disciples earthly unredeemed senses. Oh to behold Jesus face to face!
Jesus has risen, He has risen indeed
Jesus has spoken, his Name for all our needs
Jesus is walking, full of wounds and full of grace
Turn to this Redeemer, his blood to make your place
He is risen, he is reigning, he is ruling, he is King of kings.
Let the echoes of the empty tomb
Rise up in our praise
Let the shadows of the empty cross
Remind us he is raised
Let the fervent prayers of gathered saints
Urge us in the fight
Let the peace of Christ when spoken out
Fill us with his might
