“Wonderful, merciful Savior
Precious Redeemer and friend
Who would have thought that a lamb could
Rescue the souls of men
Oh, You rescue the souls of men”
The darkest moment in human history – the crucifixion of Christ for sin’s defeat – is the backdrop for the most hopeful moment in human history – the resurrection of our Christ for the salvation of our souls. Who would have imagined, when they betrayed Him, mocked and beat Him, crucified and murdered Him…that He would overcome death and rise? Only God. Jesus’s resurrection is God’s incredible, unimaginable, all-loving, all-light plan for our redemption. Out of the darkest moment, shines the brightest light. God’s chosen lamb, slain for us, was prophesied hundreds of years before in Isaiah 53:7 “He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent…” The prophecy has been fulfilled, and we are saved by the blood of the lamb! Thank you, God, for rescuing our souls.
