Matthew 28:5 – 6 5The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified. 6He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying…” 

John 20:1 – 31 …31but these have been written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name.

Driving home after prayer group where we had prayed for the Lenten Devotional, the first song I heard on the car radio was “All the Way My Savior Leads Me” by Chris Tomlin. What a perfect song for this year’s theme, Lead Me Lord! Who else should I trust to lead me? Is there anyone better? He has been, is and always will be there to lead and guide me through the good times and through the bad. But it is the chorus that hits home and reminds me of why we celebrate Easter.

All the way my Savior leads me. O, the fullness of His Love. 

There was no part-way to the cross. Jesus went all the way through  the humiliation, the beating and the torture of hanging on the cross. All because He loved me! He didn’t deserve it.

O, the sureness of His promise. In the triumph of His blood.

He shed His blood for me in what appeared to be total defeat only to rise in victory and defeat death. He has promised us eternal salvation through His blood if we believe in Him.

And when my spirit clothed immortal. Wings its light to realms of day.

Someday I will go to heaven and live eternally with Him in His light. No darkness. No tears. No pain. Only light, love and joy!

This my song through endless ages, Jesus led me all the way.

If only I can say this when my life is over: that Jesus led me all the way; that I chose to follow Him instead of going my own way. He showed us the way to live and the way to eternal salvation. He is there to lead us. All we have to do is follow.

Blessed Savior, thank you for taking away my sins through your suffering and resurrection. Lead me and guide me, help me to follow you and become more like you. Thank you for loving us! May everyone know your love and believe in the “fullness of your love, the sureness of your promise and the triumph of your blood.”
