This week at church we sang “In Christ Alone” and I love this song. It is that constant reminder that Christ is where it all is. All my hopes, dreams, security, and faith should lie in Christ alone. Christ conquered death and there is no power on earth that can exceed his. So I went to find a video version of the song.
I came upon Christina Grimmie’s version on Youtube and I just started crying. For those of you who don’t know she was a singer who became popular on Youtube. She was killed last year after a concert and was only 22. It hit me that as I am hearing this song she is currently understanding it at a level I can not comprehend.
As Christians I think it is safe to say that we all think about Christ saving us and being in his presence. But I am honest, I can’t fully comprehend it and I am sure that when we are with him we will understand it more fully. I find that intimidating. The unknown of death is kind of just that. I know that I will be with Christ but I have know idea what that really means other than total peace and a joy that exceeds all understanding. The idea of it makes me cry, good cry but cry nonetheless.
I look forward to the day when there will be no more worry and no more questions and we will see Christ face to face. But I know that even while I am here on earth that nothing can separate me from the love of Christ and his sacrifice for me.
