Jesus provides the refuge.
Yesterday in church we sang In Christ Alone which is an incredible song. It was absolutely incredible to feel freedom on Sunday as I was singing the words, and was truly an even more incredible feeling as I looked around the building and saw more arms up than I had ever seen before. Now that is freedom in Christ.
There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave He rose again
it was in this moment that it was as if our entire church took a deep breath of the ONE who made our breath
And as He stands in victory
Sin's curse has lost its grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ
