We Have Hope Because He Lives

Because He Lives
by

As Christians, we look forward to that blessed hope when one day, we shall be with Jesus. We have this hope because He arose from the grave. The resurrection is central to our Christian faith.

Assurance of Hope

Without the resurrection there is no hope – how sad our existence would be. But because He lives, we have that assurance of hope of reigning with Him for eternity. And it is this hope that we are to share with others so that they too can be with Jesus.

Peace and Calm

We sing hymns in church about the resurrection of Jesus, and one in particular comes to mind that celebrates the resurrection, Because He Lives. The song was written by Bill and Gloria Gaither during the tumultuous period of the 1960s. It was a time in their lives when fearful circumstances consumed them. But God gave them peace in the midst of chaos.

An Inspirational Song

After the birth of their child, they remembered God helped them and it was the power of Christ’s resurrection that gave them hope and joy – Life conquered Death. And life truly is worth living for those in Christ as we have the assurance that because He lives, we shall also live. And so they wrote the song Because He Lives. Enjoy the lyrics of this inspiring song below:

Because He Lives

God sent his son, they called him Jesus
He came to love, heal and forgive
He lived and died to buy my pardon
An empty grave is there to prove my savior lives

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 day because he lives

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

And then one day I’ll cross the river
I’ll fight life’s final war with pain
And then, as death gives way to victory
I’ll see the lights of glory and I’ll know he reigns

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
