All kinds of suff’ring only help it grow

And fruits of life abundant realize.

Death cannot hold the resurrection life.

I have spent too much time living in fear of death situations, even to the point of being paralyzed. Enslaved for years by this condition...

I found this hymn to be wonderful as it not only reveals that we do not have to fear physical death, but all kinds of death situations. Furthermore, these death situations only give an opportunity for The Resurrection life to thrive. For once we have passed into death, we will be on the threshold of resurrection. If we have this realization , we should never be frightened , but welcome death situations and be happy for them (I can't believe I am writing this, but this is a fact- my past ways of handling this problem was just the opposite and would just lead to more fear and dread). Hallelujah! What a marvelous state to be in!

I am certain that many seemingly fearful, difficult and depressing experiences and situations are coming my way...

Oh may I know this more and more in my experience!

Death can not hold the resurrection life!!! It's a fact we can apply it. Praise Him for His provision.

When the Lord was in Hades He broke out! When He broke out He broke Hell.

To know the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings and to be conformed to His death is to know our wonderful Savior. Oh, may I know Him more and more so that He can build His church with Himself as the materials.

Yeshua abolished death and brought LIFE & IMMORTALITY TO LIFE! Indeed, we can proudly say to death-O death WHERE is YOUR STING & O GRAVE where is your Victory!

Praise the Lord we have the resurrection life in Christ. And the Spirit is imparting this life into our inner being. This life is limitless! Death, time and space can't hold Him. He is transcendent!!! Hallelujah!

Sometimes I felt the power of death overcomes me but now I know that I shall not fear because there is the resurrection life!!! I enjoy this song because it also tells us how rich this resurrection life is.

May I know this resurrection life!
