The familiar words
become alive as we pause and listen ...
and year by year, new layers of understanding
come to our hearts and minds.
Though we will not even be able to contain
all that Easter brings us, for it will take an eternity
to comprehend the joys, the blessings,
the never-ending love of God towards us.
Our faith in Jesus
transfers God's righteousness to us,
and He now declares us flawless in His eyes.
This means we can now enjoy true and lasting peace
with God, all because of what our Lord Jesus,
the Anointed One, has done for us.
Our faith guarantees us permanent access
into this marvelous kindness that has given us
a perfect relationship with God.
What incredible joy bursts forth within us
as we keep on celebrating our hope
of experiencing God's glory!
Romans 5:1-2 TPT
