Unlike the previous two, today's post is composed not so much random thoughts as it is the story of the Cross, comprised of videos of songs that have influenced and encouraged my faith. They remind me of the hope that awaits, that death is nothing to fear, that there is a love that surpasses any human emotion, that Life has conquered the grave.
So, in honor of Jesus Christ--
Video remix of Secret Ambition by Michael W. Smith,
or catch the original video here (complete with mullets, 'cause, hey, this was the 1980s).
Judas Kiss by Petra
(song only, no video montage, but the words are enough)
Watch the Lamb by Don Francisco
Rise Again by Dallas Holm
It Is Finished by Petra
In movies or church cantatas, the story usually ends there, but the songs below speak of the life we can have as a result of the death He died and the life He now lives:
Clean by Petra
Bound to Come Some Trouble by Rich Mullins
(This song literally saved my life during a dark, suicidal stretch of time when the cliff often looked more appealing than the road.)
Love That Will Not Let Me Go by Steve Camp
(just the song, but what a song)
Road to Zion by Petra
Grave Robber by Petra
It is finished.
