When He Spoke

The message Wednesday night reminded me of this song which for some reason I had forgotten about. He was talking about instances in the Bible when people were so distraught and seemingly at the ends of their rope but Jesus knew right where they were and showed up just in time. In this particular story, Mary, was very upset when she found that Jesus had been "taken" but at just that "end of the rope" moment Jesus spoke to her and called her by her name. I can only imagine - He must have said it in such a way that she immediately recognized him as the Lord!!

When He Spoke

She thought he was the gardener when she met him on the road 
She had gone to see the tomb where Jesus lay 
But when she heard the stranger speak "Mary I'm the one you seek" 
She ran to the disciples and through her tears they heard her say

When he spoke to me I knew he was the Saviour 
When he spoke to me he called me by my name 
The stone that sealed my heart with fear rolled suddenly away 
For when Jesus spoke I knew I'd never be the same

For years I walked without him living only for myself 
But that only led me to pain and misery  
Then in my heart I heard him say "Child there is a better way" 
So I knelt down at his feet and felt his mercy as it covered me

When he spoke to me I knew it was the Saviour 
When he spoke to me he called me by my name 
The stone that sealed my heart with fear rolled suddenly away 
For when Jesus spoke I knew I'd never be the same

The stone that sealed my heart with fear rolled suddenly away, 
For when Jesus spoke I knew I'd never be the same!

It was because of this event, the Resurrection of Jesus, the one and only Son of God, that we have hope today!! Luke 24:5b-6a "Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen:"!!!
Why? Because "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16 
Happy Resurrection Day!
