Kari Jobe has a new album out called "Majestic." On this album is a song entitled, "Forever." Our choir (The Rock FWC, Madison Campus) will be singing it for our Easter services (Friday @ 7pm, Saturday @ 4 and 6pm, and Sunday @ 9, 10:45, and 12:30).
I like Kari Jobe. I think she's an awesome singer, but even better she's a great worshiper. This song has touched me a great deal as we've practiced it.
It seemed appropriate to post this during this week leading up to Easter. I pray you will read these lyrics and think about the true nature of our God, about how much Jesus gave up to save us, and how much He loves us all, no matter our sin, no matter our past, no matter how we feel about ourselves.
The moon and stars they wept
The morning sun was dead
The Savior of the world was fallen
His body on the cross
His blood poured out for us
The weight of every curse was broken
One final breath He gave
As Heaven looked away
The Son of God was laid in darkness
A battle in the grave
The war on death was waged
The power of hell forever broken
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

Here is the video. It's long, but well-worth the 13 minutes of your day. Don't turn it off when the man gets up to speak. His words are powerful. He may not be singing, but his worship is just as poignant.
May God bless you today as you obey him, worship him, and give him the glory.
