Easter Thoughts

I heard this song this week and I thought it was perfect to reflect on for Easter.

Jesus died and rose from the dead.  For you and for me.

What better response than to live our lives for His glory?

Galatians 2:20 ~ “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”

“Much of You”

By Steven Curtis Chapman

How could I stand here

And watch the sun rise

Follow the mountains

Where they touch the sky

Ponder the vastness

And the depths of the sea

And think for a moment

The point of it all was to make Much of me

Cause I’m just a whisper

And You are the thunder and …

I want to make much of You, Jesus

I want to make much of Your love

I want to live today and give You the praise

That You alone are so worthy of

I want to make much of Your mercy

I want to make much of Your cross

I give You my life

Take it and let it be used

To make much of you

And how can I kneel here

And think of the cross

The thorns and the whip

and the Nails and the spear

The infinite cost

To purchase my pardon

And bear all my shame

To think I have anything worthy boasting in

Except for Your name

Cause I am a sinner

And You are the Savior and…

I want to make much of You, Jesus

I want to make much of Your love

I want to live today and give You the praise

That You alone are so worthy of

I want to make much of Your mercy

I want to make much of Your cross

I give You my life

Take it and let it be used

To make much of you

This is Your love, oh, God

Not to make much of me

But to send Your own Son

So that we could make much of You

For all eternity
