Cry To Jesus
What does a person say in times of tragedy?
How do you comfort the families of Tracy Tribble, Amber Harris, and Jessica O Grady?
In times of death and pain, sometimes the words often echoed from Romans 8:28 hold little water. It's hard to see God working for good in the midst of such pain isn't it?
In their smash hit "Cry out to Jesus" Third Day offers the following…
To everyone who's lost someone they love. Long before it was their time, you feel like the days you had were not enough when you said goodbye.....
And to all of the people with burdens and pains Keeping you back from your life You believe that there's nothing and there is no one who can make it right.....
There is hope for the helpless
Rest for the weary
Love for the broken heart
There is grace and forgiveness
Mercy and healing
He'll meet you wherever you are
Cry out to Jesus, Cry out to Jesus...
Jesus wants us to come to him; he desires to comfort us in the midst of our trials. Remember the words of David from Psalm 23...? "Your rod and your staff they comfort me."
Jesus knows we hurt he's been here and experienced it first hand. Jesus especially knows about the harsh reality of death. He wept over the death of Lazarus, and he experienced his own agonizing death on the cross for our sins...But, he also knows about victory over the grave and eternal life too. His resurrection on Easter Sunday means for those of us who are in Christ that death isn't final!
Mercy Me reminds us in their song, "Homesick"...that...In Christ there are no goodbyes...In Christ there is no end...So I'll hold on to Jesus with all that I have to see you again....
Life eternal is an awesome unconditional gift available to all who will accept it.
To the families of Amber, Tracy, Jessica and the countless others around the world who lose loved ones each and everyday, I pray for your salvation. If you know Jesus, I pray that whatever pain or tragedy you are facing that it drives you to the Savior and not from him.
If you don’t know Jesus I pray that you will find your way to him and let his love change you through the contents of this site. We have some great resources that will answer any and all of your questions...Check out the Digitracts and Faith & Family links on our home page.
Until Wednsday, keep the faith!...Pastor Chris
