As it Turns Out


It's Holy Week.


These are the invite cards that my church gave us to give out for Easter.

So, consider yourselves invited. Whether it be to The Summit, or any other church, there is no celebration like that of Easter Sunday. And, as it turns out...chocolate rabbits aren't the point.

In fact, chocolate rabbits aren't even very good chocolate. So they kind of just fail at everything they try to do...

But I digress.

I could sit here all day explaining the sweetness and joy that Easter is about. It's the most important weekend that ever happened in the Christian faith. But we all know that I'm not particularly articulate. (And that sometimes I write muscles when I mean to say mussels and then I have to go back and correct it after many people have already read it...) So I think I'll leave this one up to a very talented artist from Summit Church named Matt Papa. He wrote this song and wants everyone to hear it this Easter Season. The words, they tell the story. And they're perfect:


"Once and for all, Once and for all
You offered up your life
For one and all, For one and all
The perfect sacrifice.
Atoning blood was shed
Love conquered when you said..

Chorus:
It is finished, It is done
To the world salvation comes
Hallalujah, We're alive!
Hell was silenced when you cried..
It is finished, It is finished

Who is this king, Who is this king
So mighty and so mighty and so strong
He is the one, He is the one
The earth has waited for
God's remedy for sin, With mercy for all men

Chorus

The earth shook and trembeled
The sun bowed it's head
The veil of the temple was open for men
As Jesus went down in the cold of the grave
Defeated the darkness when He overcame
The keys of the kingdom were placed in the hands
Of children and priests and of fishers of men
Through all generations his voice will be heard
Creation resounds the victorious words!!!

Chorus

It is done
Now completed the work of love.
Hallalujah, He's alive!
Join the song of the ransomed bride!
It is finished, It is finished

It is finished!"
If you want to listen to it you can click here to listen/watch the video. He put it to clips from the Passion movie. Watch, or just listen. But this song is my song this Easter. Because I know that what Jesus did was sufficient. And that when He said "It is finished," it was for me. The work was done. Salvation was secured.

"When He had received the drink, Jesus said, 'It is finished.' With that, He bowed His head and gave up His spirit." John 19:30
