Resurrection and New Life Day 13 – Resurrection Song- “He Is Alive” by Third Day

(Song written by David Carr, Mark Lee, Tai Anderson, and Mac Powell)

Angels are watching over us
With the saints that have gone on before us
And they join in a heavenly chorus
Singing “He is alive, He is alive”

The stars in the heavens rejoice
With the sun and the moon
And with all of the earth
Let all of creation now lift up their voice
Singing “He is alive, He is alive”

He is alive
Death is defeated
Sin has retreated
From the power of the Son
And He is alive
The enemy is faded
The battle still rages
But the war has been won

Jesus is alive

I love how much truth is packed into just a few lines in the chorus of this song, sung in the immediately recognizable baritone of Mac Powell. I can only imagine how, the moment Jesus rose again, the demonic world recoiled in horror. “How could this be? He was dead. Didn’t we win?” Absolutely not! In one moment, death lost its victory. Sin, which brings death, retreated from what had seemed like an unstoppable march onward. Since He was risen, it meant untold billions would also rise again. His power was what was truly unstoppable. He said He had power to lay down His life and to take it up again (John 10:18). And that’s exactly what He did. His resurrection doesn’t mean our lives will be trouble free; the battle still rages daily. But don’t we have great peace knowing the war has already been won? He is alive—an unshakeable truth that can never be taken from us!
