In the the Redeemer

In the song Beautiful Saviour there are lines that go like this: "I will trust in the cross of my Redeemer - I will sing of the blood that never fails"

As I was walking to work, I was singing this song and thinking about it. If I could, I would change the first line above to say, "I will trust in the Lord of my redemption."

Why? Because I have a tendency to think more about the cross than the one who hung on it. When I spoke with a friend about the message of Christianity last December, I spent a lot more time talking about what the death of my Lord means to me than what the life of my Lord means to me. But Paul says "that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures" (1 Corinthians 15). I want to know both the death and the life of my Lord, by the power of His Spirit in me. Amen.

"Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life." Romans 6
