Bill Gaither’s classic Because He Lives tells that Christ enables us to face tomorrow, but you know what else it does? Everything – that we can say amen.
You have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. Colossians 3:3-4
Saint Augustine of Hippo once said “singing belongs to the lover;” that is, a song is born of love – for country as in national anthems, for other people in what we think of as “love songs.” So what makes you sing, what calls out love to come as you are? Bill Gaither’s classic “Because He Lives” tells that Christ enables us to face tomorrow, but you know what else it does? Everything – that we can say “amen,” truly so be it. Join with Maher in that incredible joy of something outside yourself, in God, who has made you His own.SKM: below-content placeholder
