I believe the tomb is empty…


squilrI’m driving to work this morning, ready for a new day of graft and numbers, when who should pop into my head but Mr Ron Kenoly! Big Ron! Now if you don’t know who Ron Kenoly is then you’re missing out on some great live worship recordings, especially the early stuff, albums like Lift Him Up, God is Able, Sing Out etc…

Anyway, Ron starts singing the bridge from the song “Yes Lord (We Believe)” which goes like this, ahem:

“I believe the tomb is empty, for I know my heart is full

Of the glory and the wonder of your name

I believe the power to raise you, is alive in me right now

And this joy within my heart can’t be contained

Yes Lord, Yes Lord I believe!

What a truth! I got all excited all over again at the fact (F-A-C-T!) that Christ was raised from the dead and now that same resurrection power is alive in me!

Power to live, power to reign, power to serve, power to praise, power to overcome, power to evangelise…power.

That’s what Acts 1:8 is all about – dynamite power for you and I.

Thank you Jesus!
