The Power Of Him

Easter-2011

More than 2,000 people from Second Baptist Church, Houston, Texas, gathered at Discovery Green in the heart of Houston to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. The purpose of Dance Your Shoes Off! was to proclaim the resurrection of Jesus Christ in a powerful and celebratory way. Most importantly, each participant left a new pair of shoes on the field for those in need. These shoes will be given to local mission agencies, including Star of Hope, individuals all across the world through our mission partners and mission trips.

NOTE: This event was inspired by our fellow believers in Budapest: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i5dSIL358NM.

CREDITS: The song was commissioned by Second Baptist Church for this event. It is called "Rise Up" sung by Lauren James Camey and produced by Joshua Moore. Voice over by Lyle Countryman. Song is available on iTunes.

Second Baptist Church-Dance Your Shoes Off!

Time to begin..."The Power of Him"


Oh...Christian...Why Be Still...?

Dance and Rejoice...The Time Is Now...Part of His Will.

Power that has lived through the Ages...

Shared with us through History along various stages...

But given to us...on a day we thought he had died...

The day they thought they put Him down...When they sure tried.

And found...in Glory like has never been seen before...And Power that had never been...

Jesus Rose...When All Around Thought He was Defeated...That's The Power of Him !

Coming to the Planet in Peace and Sharing With Us From His Father's Kingdom...

Jesus Arrived As A Small Child...Then Carried A Massive Cross to Freedom !

One Man...One Son of God...One that was Mocked for What He Said...And Crucified...

One that Claimed the Very Souls of All by His Blood...A Force to be Reckoned with...Never Denied.

The Power of Him...Was that He gave his Life Freely...It was He that Lay it Down...

And With the Might of the God of the Universe...He Rose From What Tried To Hold Him In The Ground.

No Man Has Lived As Him...His Legend Remains On Bright Today...Through All The Nations...

People Still Find It Hard To Believe What Is Said Of This Man...But I Sing For Joy...And Join The Celebration.

With One Snap of His Fingers...Ten Thousand Angels Could Have Began Their Descent...

Yet...He Stood His Ground...And Truly Followed His Father's Will...In Total Commitment.

A Supernatural Calling from His Father...For The Sake of All Men...

He Took The Stripes Beaten Across His Back...By The Power Of Him !

And turned the sin and scourge of men...into New Life...Washed Clean By His Own Blood...

By the Power of Him...He Made All Things New...And Freed Us from All "Earthly-Bound" Crud.

And By Faith I Thank Him...For What He has Done for Me...For You...For the Entire Human Race...

The King of Glory has Risen For All Time...Share The Joy...Feel His Love...Know His Grace !

Listen to the Words of Songs Lifted to Him...With Renewed Spirit...of Where We Stand With Jesus Christ...

Let The Songs Take You All The Way To Victory...Celebrate in Him...The Ressurrection and the Life !

We that Dance Before The Lord With All Our Heart...Happy...He Has Made All of Us Free...

By The Power of Him...Greatest Power I Have Known...Come and Join the Ressurrection Dance With Me!

Reynold Jay: Thanks for the "Vote Up One" and beautiful on this one. Truly...this one was inspired by a heart filled with rejoicing. So much fun to write...with the music to this. Who could not be inspired? I like the title to your Book One in your series:"Lean AgainstThe Wind"...and will be by to read the Hub you linked above that you said...I might enjoy.

“What would the Messiah’s message be today if he traveled the Earth during our time?” A Great Question. I bet it would be to just "rejoice"...because he has already done all the heavy work...and the rest is all downhill from here!

Appreciate your comment...and for stopping in to read "The Power Of Him"! Best Regards, Signed, MPM.

Great photos put this over the top! Keep up the great HUBS. Up one and beautiful. I'm now your fan! I am working a series of 5 novels, “Seeds from Heaven” that touches on a lot of the things you mention. One might ask, “What would the Messiah’s message be today if he traveled the Earth during our time?” Book one is now published, “Lean against the Wind.”

Based upon this HUB, you might enjoy
