Resurrection

Like every Christian preacher in the world I shall be preaching on the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ today – an amazing honour to proclaim, and live in, the resurrection and its eternal consequences. I shall be declaring these results (though there are many others besides these):

1. Jesus intercedes for us – Rom 8:34

2. Jesus guarantees our resurrection – 2 Cor 4:14, Acts 10:42

3. Jesus is with us always – Matt 28:20 – friendship is now ours John 15:13-15

4. Jesus does still heal today – Acts 4:10

5. Jesus grants repentance and forgiveness of sins – Acts 5:31, read also Rom 4:25, raised for our justification

6. Jesus pours out the Holy Spirit today – Acts 2:33

7. Jesus calls us to bear fruit for God – Rom 7:4, John 15:5

There are many great resurrection hymns – some of which I have feasted in this morning – but I love the simplicity of Tim Hughes’ Happy Day – you can see it here on YouTube – don’t forget to buy the download though.

Verse 1:
The greatest day in history, Death is beaten
You have rescued me
Sing it out Jesus is alive
The empty cross, The empty grave
Life eternal You have won the day
Shout it out Jesus is alive
He’s alive

Chorus:
Oh happy day, happy day
You washed my sin away
Oh happy day, happy day
I’ll never be the same
Forever I am changed

Verse 2:
When I stand, in that place
Free at last, meeting face to face
I am Yours Jesus You are mine
Endless joy, perfect peace
Earthly pain finally will cease
Celebrate Jesus is alive
He’s alive

Chorus:
Oh happy day, happy day
You washed my sin away
Oh happy day, happy day
I’ll never be the same OHH NO
Forever I am changed

Oh what a glorious day
What a glorious way
That You have saved me
Oh what a glorious day
What a glorious name

YEAHHH

Chorus:
Oh happy day, happy day
You washed my sin away
Oh happy day, happy day
I’ll never be the same
Forever I am changed

What a glorious glorious day,
I’ll never be the same
