Then Came the Morning

That first Easter Sunday...a day that changed everything!

A day that is the very basis for the Christian faith.  "If Christ is not raised, your faith is futile..." said the apostle Paul.

A day that proves decisively the love and power of God.

As celebrated in this 25-year-old song that still is a goose-bump inducer.  It's Newsong's "Arise, My Love."  Enjoy, and celebrate!

And in this allergy-attack inducer.  Two of the most talented singers to ever take the stage.  Sandy Patti & Larnelle Harris doing "I've Just Seen Jesus."  Enjoy, and celebrate!

And in this old-school acoustic classic.  Don Francisco's "He's Alive" which celebrates the resurrection of Christ through the eyes of Peter.  Enjoy, and celebrate!

Finally, one by a guy whose music had a HUGE impact on my coming back to the faith 30 years ago.  this is Keith Green doing "Easter Song."  Enjoy, and celebrate!  The particular setting is a music club in Los Angeles...NOT a church or a Christian concert.  Thus his explanation @ the beginning.  Enjoy, and celebrate!

Remember, if Christ is not risen, our faith is futile, and we are misrepresenting God Himself!  (1 Corinthians 15:14, 15, 17).  But since He is, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord, your labor is not in vain.  (1 Corinthians 15:58)

He is risen!
