Lord Jesus, in You we recognise what life can be:
Recklessly loving, abundantly forgiving, and limitlessly free.
Thank You for offering this life to us again, now.
Thank You for removing the barriers that would keep us from this life,
and for making us new again.
We praise You for the way You lived – opening doors of pain and guilt,
and releasing captives.
We praise You for the way You died – forgiving sinners,
and denying revenge.
We praise You for the way You returned from death – opening graves,
and re-awakening hopes and dreams.
And, we praise You for the way You come to us now –
stirring love in our hearts, and passion in our lives.
