Resurrecting - Elevation Worship

4th September 2017

We hold the symbol of the cross so dearly to our hearts. Yet Christ’s final breath on the cross, represents a comma, not a full stop. There is power in the name of Jesus, because the story of salvation doesn’t end at the cross, it points to the empty tomb. Our beloved Saviour willingly laid his life down, like a lamb to the slaughter.

But on the third day, He resurrected - restored to life or revived. The tomb is empty, our King is victorious over the strongholds of this world.

"Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?"

I remember very vividly the first time I heard the song, it was on Easter Sunday. In that moment, the Holy Spirit broke through my walls and healed my deepest hurt. As I heard the lyrics of the song, I let it become my prayer. I had remained too long in the ashes of defeat, living like the dead. The situation was dire and the circumstances unchanged amidst defeat, but I chose to let my spirit arise in praise:

By Your spirit I will rise, From the ashes of defeat,
The resurrected king,
Is resurrecting me.
In Your name I come alive,
To declare your victory,
The resurrected king,
Is resurrecting me.

Even as my flesh should retire, I will be home with my wonderful King. My life will be a story of resurrection/restoration/revival, a drawn out breath, until I pass into eternity. Until then, I’m not going to live defeated. No, I’m going to live resurrected.
