Easter Sunday morning of 2009 marked the 20th anniversary that Michael, Ronnie and Ron Booth sang together for the first time. Ronnie Booth shared at that time that "20 years ago, we stood and sang Bill Gaither's song Because He Lives.' That was the start of the Booth Brothers."
Actually, Because He Lives' is the start of much more than the Booth Brothers. "Because He Lives" is the start of truly living here on earth. Christ's resurrection is what makes possible a brand new Christian life and hope of an eternal future in heaven.
We can look at the cross and see hope and joy, because the cross is empty. It's because He lives.
We can celebrate Easter, because there is life. It's because Jesus lives.
We can celebrate death for us and those we love, because it is not the end. Life only ends on this earth. True life is for eternity. We can enjoy life forever with God, because Jesus lives.
Life today and life forever is worth the living, just "Because He Lives."
