………and not just for seventy years or so but forever! And what’s more God puts us “in Christ” so we’re alive to share that amazing eternal everlasting life! This is the maddest, merriest, most marvellous day there has ever been because death is defeated and life is springing up and pouring out. The world will never understand it but it’s light in the darkness, hope in despair, life out of death – rejoice rejoice rejoice!

Lord Jesus, my Lord and my God, alive forever – hallelujah!
