If any song could even begin to sum up the immense importance of Good Friday, it would be Forever. No words could adequately express the pain, love, and the fulfilling victory that were in play on the day that Jesus was crucified. Just listening to the words of this song gives me chills. How can Someone love us this much?
But He does, and He did. It was indeed a Good Friday for humankind on that day over 2000 years ago, and I couldn’t be more grateful that Jesus willingly chose to die in the most humiliating, painful way possible… for me, for us, and for the world.
The ground began to shake
The stone was rolled away
His perfect love could not be overcome
Now death, where is your sting?
Our resurrected King has rendered you defeated!
Forever He is glorified
Forever He is lifted high
Forever He is risen
He is alive, He IS alive!
