Inspired by . . . Hymns of Faith: Because He Lives

Because I live, you also will live. 
John 14:19

This is a time of great turmoil in our country. In our world. Setting politics aside, even a brief glance to the outside world reveals the suffering. Homes and people have been destroyed by natural disasters, anger, fear, bitterness, and a growing opioid epidemic. Chances are, many of you don't have to look to the outside world to witness these things. Someone we know is suffering. Often it's the person looking back at us in the mirror. 

Forty-seven years ago, Bill and Gloria Gaither were facing a world in similar turmoil. The Vietnam war and the American drug culture were raging; creating a world that seemed as if it were spinning out of control. Pregnant with their third child, Gloria wondered if this really was a good time to be bringing another child into the world.

Then Benjy came and God reminded the Gaithers of these beautiful truths:

Because He lives, I can face tomorrow,
Because He lives, all fear is gone;
Because I know He holds the future,
And life is worth the living,
Just because He lives!

How sweet to hold a newborn baby,
And feel the pride and joy he gives;
But greater still the calm assurance:
This child can face uncertain days because He Lives!

Christ's resurrection is our guarantee not only of an eternal life with Him but also the reality that He lives in our hearts today, now, and is an integral part of our daily living.

We all can face these uncertain days because He lives.
