Easter Love - Lent 36

As I have journey through some of the Psalms during Lent, I have been amazed at the 'Gospel' presented in these songs and prayers. They were written many years before Jesus was born, but they were certainly created with the Messiah in mind.

I think that it is fitting that on this Easter morning we reflect on the following words from Psalm 36:

Your love, Lord, reaches to the heavens,
    your faithfulness to the skies.
Your righteousness is like the highest mountains,
    your justice like the great deep.
    You, Lord, preserve both people and animals.
How priceless is your unfailing love, O God!
    People take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
They feast in the abundance of your house;
    you give them drink from your river of delights.
For with you is the fountain of life;
    in your light we see light.

Do you see how powerful this is when we read it from this side of the Easter story. This is WOW!
Thank you Lord of the agony of Cross and the glory of the empty tomb.


Living in Grace
