Give Me the Simple Life: Three Little Words that Rocked the World


He is risen.

Imagine for a moment how it must have felt to have been a grief and guilt-stricken disciple, trudging out to Jesus’  grave in the early morning, expecting to find a sealed tomb filled with a decaying body . . . and be met by a mighty, awe-inspiring angel?

“He is not here. He is risen” (Matthew 28:6).

Think about those words for a moment. What a startling, shocking turn of events! And two thousand years later, it continues to astonish.

He is risen.

Three little words. Three little words that changed the world forevermore. Three little words that changed us forevermore!

He is risen. He is risen indeed!

Here’s a beautiful rendition of that startling moment experienced by the disciples, sung by Dolly Parton. (Sorry for the 8-second advertisement at the beginning! But it’s worth it to listen to the song.)

He is alive!

    He is Risen are indeed three words that changed the world. Not only did those words change the world, but thankfully, they also changed me. I am grateful during this Holy Week to remember the love that went to the cross for even me.

  2. Barbara Laughter says:

    This is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard. The first time I heard it was when Dolly originally performed it. I love it every time I hear it. I am so thankful God loved us enough to send His only son as a sacrifice for us. I am so thankful “He’s Alive”, and one day I can go live with Him. Thank you Jesus for dying for me.

  3. Becoming familiar with a specific currency set greatly helps in this matter.
    I think the ultimate lesson from all of this litigation is
    quite simple; anyone who wants to stay competitive should
    stop being so complacent based on past achievements, roll up their sleeves,
    and get busy innovating. The more you have,
    the more you have to be responsible for.

  4. Instead of navigating the waters blindly, proper social media strategies should be designed and followed.
    Interact and connect directly with potential customers.
    Popularity cannot be achieved through Search Engine Optimization (SEO), it can only be achieved through Social Media Optimization (SMO).

  5. Combination of SEO with video can leverage your market and increase your website traffic.
    Highlight the video URL you want to download and click the download
    icon to open the New Download window. Irrespective of whether people see the ad or not,
    business owners need to pay the entire amount for buying an ad space.

    Will it be emotionally charged with inspiration and excitement
    or doom and gloom about the economy. It also diminishes the tension in the hip and leg areas, which allows for uninterrupted blood circulation to those spots.
    Political groups, for example, may most effectively advance their cause by arranging for
    censorship of their views and then publicizing the censorship.

    shined some light on the opportunities that a carpet cleaning business can provide you.
    Use these steps and techniques and choose a company that suits you
    and works around your schedule.
