Hymn & Scripture Challenge # 8, Christ Arose

I don't know about you, but I love this song!  Here is the chorus.

"Up from the grave He arose,
With a mighty triumph o’er His foes,
He arose a Victor from the dark domain,
And He lives forever, with His saints to reign.
He arose! He arose!
Hallelujah! Christ arose!"

Now I am sitting here singing "Hallelujah" over and over as I know my Redeemer lives.  There are times I feel like David in the Bible and I need to just dance a jig and sing the praises of my Savior for all He has done for me. 2 Samuel 6:14 And David danced before the LORD with all his might; and David was girded with a linen ephod.  You see David was not ashamed of his Lord and I don't want to be either. Now I am not sure He will call me to do a jig and I definitely cannot sing, but I do love to try and I love to sing unto my Savior!  Now if I could sing, this is how I would love to sing this song unto Him!

The reason for the scripture that I chose is that God loved me so much that He gave His only son for me.  I have accepted Him as my Savior and now because He arose there will come a day when I will also arise to meet Him in the air!  How exciting is that?  He arose a victor and now because of Him I can arise a victor over sin!

I encourage you to check out Patter's Post as she really shows you in scripture the proof of His Resurrection.  I am also entering this into the weeks Little Birdie Blessings Scripture Thursday and Word Art Wednesday!
