Preparing for Easter: Celebration Song!

Easter is an important holiday. I would argue that it is more important than Christmas. Without Easter, there would be no Christianity. Without Jesus rising from the dead to save us from our sins, there would be no eternal life. Easter is a day to celebrate, so today I picked some celebration songs.

I’ve always loved this first song. When I was a part of the Methodist church, the choir would sing this every Easter. I’ve always thought that this will be what heaven sounds like. It just doesn’t feel like Easter to me without it. So if you like the classics, listen to this one (although videos just can’t accurately portray the amazing experience of sitting in front of a full choir):

Disclaimer: I do not support the views of the Mormon church. This was just a really cool version of the Hallelujah chorus.

I absolutely love the next song. It feels like a celebration and always makes me want to get up and dance. I also love how it incorporates the two different languages to praise God. If you want a more modern Easter celebration, here it is:

Have a wonderful Easter celebration!!

Preparing for Easter: Song 4

Tomorrow is Easter, a celebration of the day that Christ rose from the dead. What better song than one about resurrection? This song is a good reminder that Jesus was not the only one resurrected on Easter. We were dead in our sin and have been raised with him to eternal life! In his name, we have VICTORY!

 

Preparing for Easter: Song 2

Consider what it would have been like to be at the foot of Jesus’ cross. The pain, the heartbreak. To see him beaten, battered, and covered with blood. He never did anything wrong. That should have been you on that cross! But because he did that, you can lay every burden down. Every wrong thing that you’ve ever said or done. Every worry that you’re not good enough. Because of what he’s done, you are good enough.

Jesus has won my heart. Has he won yours?

Preparing for Easter: Song 1

This morning during my quiet time, I felt the urge to sing. And then not only to sing, but to share some of the songs I was thinking about with others. So for the next few days until Easter, I will be sharing some songs that will hopefully help prepare your heart for Easter. Here is the first one:

On Friday, we will commemorate the day that Christ died. Jesus could have called for God to rescue him and had an army of angels at his side. He did not have to die. But if he didn’t die, we would be lost. We would never be good enough to be in God’s presence in heaven. Jesus did not let us down. He came to earth, lived, went through torture, and died for us. And he doesn’t let us down today. He is at the Father’s side, interceding for us. No matter what you are going through in your life today, God is good. And he is NEVER gonna let you down.
