Look Up And Rejoice

Once and for all your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ accomplished all that was needed to be accomplished. He suffered humiliations, mockeries, scourgings, and beatings to such a degree He was unrecognizable, and He hung on the cross shedding every drop of blood for you. He bore the nails in His hands, suffered the entire wrath of God upon Himself, and in the end died for your every sin. 

But He was pierced for our transgressions; He was crushed for our iniquities; upon Him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with His wounds we are healed. Isaiah 53:5

But He could not be held down and there was no one or nothing that could hold Him back. On the third day, the Holy Spirit raised Him to life defeating both sin and death that you could be granted eternal life. 

“God raised Him up, loosing the pangs of death, because it was not possible for Him to be held by it.” Acts 2:24 

Neither does sin or death have any reign over Him and they no longer have any reign over you. His perfect and flawless life and blood paid the great high price for the salvation of your soul, and for anyone who will believe in His name.

“Death is swallowed up in victory.” “O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Cor 15:54-57

No longer should you look down at your feet with sorrow, no longer should you look back at your shameful past, no longer should you wallow in your sin and guilt, and no longer should you flounder around in the darkness for you now dwell in His light. 

“There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” Romans 8:1 

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth, burst into jubilant song with music; make music to the Lord with the harp, with the harp and the sound of singing, with trumpets and the blast of the ram’s horn shout for joy before the Lord, the King. Psalms 98:4-6

Hold your head up high, look to the Son who has set you free. Bask in His radiant glow, the glow of His great glory, love, and affection. You have been pulled out of the darkness to live in His marvelous light. You are no longer condemned but you have been pardoned, forgiven, and adopted into sonship to God the Father. Praise the Lord oh my soul and all that is within me praise His holy name!

May the glory of the Lord endure forever; may the Lord rejoice in His works, who looks on the earth and it trembles, who touches the mountains and they smoke! 

I will sing to the Lord as long as I live; I will sing praise to my God while I have being. May my meditation be pleasing to Him, for I rejoice in the Lord. 

Let sinners be consumed from the earth, and let the wicked be no more! Bless the Lord, O my soul! Praise the Lord! Psalm 104:31-35
