‘Selah’ is a word that appears in the Bible, particularly in the book of Psalms, and is often used to indicate a pause or a moment of reflection. This Easter, we invite you to Selah – to pause and reflect on the sacrifice of Jesus and the power of His resurrection. For seven days we will be pausing and praising God because His only begotten and unique Son (John 3:16, AMPC) defeated death so you and I can have eternal life. A minute of Selah, as David did in the book of Pslam, is our time to praise God, fully and completely for His grace, His goodness, but most importantly in this season, for the gift of Salvation.
What is ‘Selah’?
The idea of taking a moment to pause or reflection is a valuable one, and it is something that we can all benefit from in our daily lives. In a world that is often fast-paced and full of distractions, it can be all too easy to rush through our days without taking the time to pause and reflect on what is truly important.
Taking a moment of Selah can help us to slow down and focus on what really matters. Selah is a reminder to be present in the moment and to fully engage in the Easter season. It encourages us to take the time to listen, to reflect, and to participate in remembrance of the gift of Salvation! Of course, taking a moment of Selah is not always easy. We are often pulled in many different directions, and it can be difficult to find the time and the space to pause and reflect. However, with practice, we can cultivate the habit of Selah in our lives, and we can learn to appreciate the value of taking a moment to reflect and to be present in the moment.
This Easter, we will be in a moment of Selah, for only a minute. This is a minute of prayer and meditation, a time to reflect on the cross, and the redemption power of His resurrection! It is a time to rejoice in the fullness of the plan of Salvation because the blood of Jesus saves! Join us on Facebook and Instagram from April 03 – April 06 as we pause and celebrate the victory of the cross.
Why Should I Selah?
From the beginning, the plan of Salvation was in place and The Cross, where the Son of God was crucified, became the full expression of love. Heaven watched as Jesus cried out in anguish “My God, My God, why have you abandoned me,” (Matthew 27:46, AMPC), as the curtains in the sanctuary tore from top to bottom, and the rock split when Jesus (God’s only begotten and unique Son, John 3:16, AMPC) died on that cross, heaven paused to watch the Son of man pay our debt because “God so greatly loved, and deeply prized the world” (John 3:16, AMPC). The world, is you and I!
Jesus was on a rescue mission. He was the redemption plan. His death broke our curses, Jesus paid the ransom that through Him, and by His blood we, as believers, can have eternal life. But, we know the story doesn’t end there! We know that when Jesus said “it is finished” (John 19:30, AMPC) on the cross before He died, victory was on its way!
We know that Jesus fought for our full and complete salvation, and rose again three days later in complete triumph so there would be no doubt, no question, that JESUS IS LORD! Jesus defeated death for our eternal life; Jesus broke His body, so you and I can be made whole in Him! All we have to do to have eternal life, is believe. So, this Easter we pause and reflect on the victory of The Cross, the power of the blood, and the triumph of God’s only begotten and unique Son, Jesus. Join us as we Selah.
