Who was it that when they were born the world’s calendar stopped and started all over again? Who was it that walked out of a tomb with a living glorified body in spite of having been beaten beyond human recognition, hung on a cross, a spear driven into His side until every drop of His blood was spilled out on the ground? Is there any other world figure who stopped time and defeated the power of death? Was it Confucius, Mohammed, Joseph Smith, Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini? No, the clock just tic toc tic tocked away when they were born. Did they walk from their tomb or rise from their grave?. Absolutely not! There is no one else other than Jesus the Christ that accomplished these feats! None other!
So then where do we go but to Lord Jesus? The Apostle Peter summed it up this way, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. Also we have come to believe and know that You are the Christ, the Son of the living God” John 6:68-69. Life will bring many chapters our way of pain, joy, sorrow, loneliness and then the final enemy. But the time stopping ever-living Savior will lead us through each one. Consider the words to “Untitled Hymn” better known as “Come to Jesus” by Chris Rice.
Weak and wounded sinner, lost and left to die, Oh raise your head for love is passing by. Come to Jesus, come to Jesus, come to Jesus and live.
Now your burdens lifted, and carried far away, And precious blood has washed away the stain. So sing to Jesus, sing to Jesus, sing to Jesus and live.
Like a newborn baby don’t be afraid to crawl, And remember when you walk sometimes we fall. So fall on Jesus, fall on Jesus, fall on Jesus and live.
Sometimes the way is lonely and steep and filled with pain, So if your sky is dark and pours the rain. Then cry to Jesus, cry to Jesus, cry to Jesus and live.
Oh when the love spills over and music fills the night, And when you can’t contain your joy inside. Then dance for Jesus, dance for Jesus, dance for Jesus and live!
And with your final heartbeat kiss the world goodbye, Then go in peace and laugh on glory’s side. And fly to Jesus, fly to Jesus, fly to Jesus and live.
Fly to Jesus, Fly to Jesus, Fly to Jesus and live…
