DEATH WAS ARRESTED

Alone in my sorrow and dead in my sin, Lost without hope with no place to begin. Your love Made a way to let mercy come in, When death was arrested and my life began” these are some of the lyrics to a song by North Point Out ft Seth Condrey. If there’s one thing that this song has reminded me is God’s endless love, why am i saying this? The song is an emotive description of a beautiful picture of what Jesus did for us. The enemy is real, and our best defense against his desire to destroy us is to cry out the victorious words of songs like “Death Was Arrested” at the top of our lungs, knowing that our Redeemer has saved us from death, forever. No matter where you are in your walk with Jesus, this song is a salvation message that helps us remember that Jesus came to die, defeated death and rose again to set us free.

Well, God sent his only son so that He can free us from OUR sins, i know there’s no one that would die for you but He did so that we can be freed from sin and have new life. How powerful is that?!  I do believe and would say that without a doubt that our mission in life and the reason why we are able to experience what the end of the song say “Oh, we’re free, free Forever we’re free Come join the song Of all the redeemed Yes, we’re free free Forever amen When death was arrested and my life began”. In 1st Corinthians 15: 1-58, We hear about the resurrection of God how we should believe and have faith in Him because he died and was later resurrected  and I love how at the end of that, Paul makes the case that if Christ is not risen from the dead, then Christians are the most pitiful people in the world.

Going after spiritual freedom, we throw off a lot of things the world would say is important, like money and success. We say there’s something greater to live for. At the end of that, Paul says because Christ is indeed risen, be steadfast and unmovable day in and day out, giving ourselves to the work of the Lord. We know that what we do in Him and in His power is not in vain. The only way that is possible is that if the message of this song, that death has been arrested and that we have the possibility of new life and freedom, is actually true and a reality. It’s not just a religious belief, but affects the way we love others, the way treat others and the way we serve our churches. Christ in us is our hope for everything. He is alive!

There is nothing we have been given that is more valuable than our salvation. This song moves me to reflect on just how much Jesus endured to purchase us from the grave. This song is a foretaste of that beautiful ending that we are all running towards as we finish the race set before us.  The Good News of the Gospel, which this song perfectly portrays, is that God accepts us no matter what we’ve done. As the song says, “My shame was a ransom He faithfully bore, He cancelled my debt and He called me His friend, when death was arrested and my life began.” What a wonderful, encouraging Truth. That’s the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
This song is a great way to thank Jesus for the undeserved gift of grace. Grace could stand for “God’s Riches At Christ’s Expense.” As we celebrate the Resurrection of our King, you can sing this song to Jesus and know that He died to save us. Don’t be sad or feel guilty, but accept Jesus and celebrate that Jesus is alive!

Be blessed. Remember Death was arrested and your life began
