(I Am the Resurrection!/What He's Done for Me)
Suddenly, Jesus saw my need; suddenly!The story then continues in the house of Mary and Martha. Lazarus is away on business and his two sisters, along with Julia, have a discussion regarding Martha’s lack of “domestic giftings.” Julia is being grafted into the inner circle but feels awkward. Jesus, Peter, James, and John stop by for a meal. Trouble begins when Mary burns the fish and bread and Peter puts his foot in his mouth by “trying not to notice.” Some delightful comedy follows.
Loving me completely, guaranteed; suddenly!
Jesus filled the void, suddenly,
Now I’m overjoyed…suddenly!
Of all my sins and bondage, I’ve been freed!
“…Oh Father, I pray You’ll take this cup, please take it from Me.
But Your will, not My will; let My shed blood set them all free.…”
“Father, forgive them; they don’t know what they do.At song’s end Jesus cries out in anguish, “My God, My God; why have You forsaken Me?! His breathing becomes more labored. “Into Your hands…I commend My spirit.” Jesus gasps for air. “It…is…FINISHED!! At the end of His final exhale Jesus drops his head. At once there is a lightning flash and thunder clap: JESUS is dead. PETER is heard above all the others weeping and crying out, “No, no!”
Do not forsake me; O Father, I need You!
Give Me strength; don’t turn away. Hear My cry this final day.
My death on this cross is to save you; I love you,
My blood shed for you: the last sacrifice! I’m paying the price!. . .”
I am the Resurrection, I am the Life!The lights go black.
I am the First and Last, the Way, Truth, and Life!
Where is your sting, O Death? No victory, O Grave?
I am the Risen Christ! I’ve come to heal and save!
For I am the Resurrection! I am the Life!
I am the Risen Savior, Jesus Christ, the Lord!
“…I thought my love for You was strong.At the end of the song Jesus appears at Peter’s side. Peter is so shocked, so sorrowful, so embarrassed, he can barely look Jesus in the eye. Of course Jesus forgives Peter and assures him of His love.
You had taught me right from wrong.
But like a coward, I deserted You.
And now there’s nothing I can do.
Now there’s nothing I can do.
Lord, there’s nothing I can do….”
