I Know He Lives
I don't have to see Him, I don't have to touch His hands to know that those nails pierced through to save sinful man. I didn't have to be there, didn't have to roll the stone away to know that He rose from the dead to overcome the grave. Jesus, The Lamb … the Great I AM … I know He lives!
John 15:13 - “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” 1Corinthians 15:2-5 – “By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: 5 And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve:” John 20:24-29 – “But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe. 26 And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you. 27 Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. 28 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God. 29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.” Exodus 3:14 - “And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.” Revelation 1:18 - “I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.”
Even in our darkest hour, His Love is enough to fill us up and lift us higher. His amazing grace, how sweet the sound! His death on Calvary's Cross, the tomb that is empty … He saved a wretch like me! Oh, my Jesus lives! Today’s Song – Watch/Listen: “I Know He Lives” – Artist: David Archuleta
