What a fantastic day today is!
If you're a Christian, like me, it's the Best Day of the Year.
It's because today we celebrate something AMAZING!
Something supernatural and surreal, astonishing and astounding ... as Christians we believe that today Jesus, who was killed two thousands years ago in Jerusalem, came back from the dead. He was 'resurrected'.
If you've been reading my blog these past few days, or if you're into theology, you'll know that this is central to the Christian faith. That we believe in a God who is alive. Jesus proved his divinity by living as a man, dying and then ... well being raised from the dead! Defying death!
And all this to give us all hope that if we believe in him, we may also live eternally, eventually, when we're done living life on earth!
Today we celebrate the life of Jesus and his resurrection - and what better way than to share a great hymn?
It is actually my favourite Easter hymn. Years ago I featured on the TV religious programme BBC Songs of Praise (recorded in Jersey) and THIS was the song I chose.
It tells the story of Easter so well and it's so optimistic, so positive. It always fills me with joy!
I hope it does the same for you today!
