Resurrecting 

Beth and I are looking at Mary Magdalene today. 

I can’t imagine how she felt there, after all Christ had done for her, at the foot of the cross. Watching her redeemer lose it all, disrespected and rejected. The one who relieved her torment was now being tormented and tortured. Even God himself looked away. 

The cross looked like failure. What do you do when the dream has died? Mary was devastated. 

But He wasn’t done with Mary yet. He did one more thing: He died for her. 

He died for you. And now, we have the victory. Do we walk in victory, or do we live life in shadows, seeking Him among the dead? 

Resurrecting by Elevation Church 

The head that once was crowned with thorns

Is crowned with glory now

The Savior knelt to wash our feet

Now at his feet we bow

The one who wore our sin and shame

Now robed in majesty

The radiance of perfect love

Now shines for all to see

Your name

Your name

Is victory

All praise

Will rise

To Christ our king

[x2]

The fear that held us now gives way

To him who is our peace

His final breath upon the cross

Is now alive in me

Your name

Your name

Is victory

All praise

Will rise

To Christ our king

[x2]

By Your spirit I will rise

From the ashes of defeat

The resurrected king

Is resurrecting me

In Your name I come alive

To declare your victory

The resurrected king

Is resurrecting me

[x3]

The tomb where soldiers watched in vain

Was borrowed for three days

His body there would not remain

Our God has robbed the grave

Our God has robbed the grave

Your name

Your name

Is victory

All praise

Will rise

To Christ our king

[x2]

By Your spirit I will rise

From the ashes of defeat

The resurrected king

Is resurrecting me

In your name I come alive

To declare Your victory

The resurrected king

Is resurrecting me

The resurrected king

Is resurrecting me
