7 Inspirational Worship Songs For Easter

Easter is a beautiful time to focus solely on Christ and what He has done for us. He came as a man, died on a cross, and rose from the dead 3 days later to redeem us. Without Christ, we are dead in our sins, eternally condemned. But by the grace of God, with Christ, we are free, loved, and made alive again, just as He was. He deserves our praise, adoration, and worship, and I hope you’ll join me in worshiping our Savior. To prepare your heart, here are 7 inspirational worship songs for Easter.
