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.

“And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 4:7
Music helps me. I find the peace of God in a guitar strum, a gentle voice, a violin in the background. I believe God uses music to touch the hearts of His people. I want to share with you 6 songs that God has used to touch my heart with peace in times of fear. Continue Reading
