O Glorious Day!

I have a new favorite song, y'all. Glorious Day by Casting Crowns. Seriously, these guys know what they're doing. Love so many of their songs.

"Living He loved me.
Dying He saved me.
Buried He carried my sins far away.
Rising He justified - freed me forever!
And one day He's coming
O, Glorious Day!"

Maybe one of those lines speaks directly to you - for me, the thought of my sins being buried in His burial strikes a chord. They're gone, dead, good as dirt. Where I should be, He went with my sins, so that I never have to. (Hebrews  2:9)

I love how the chorus emphasizes all that Christ accomplished. The entirety of His life (and He lives yet!) has a redemptive purpose. His life, His death, His burial, His resurrection, His second coming ... all working together to give us hope.

"Death could not keep him. The grave could not hold Him from rising again!"
