What joy to know that, despite the many times I’ve rebelled against Him, the Lord has graciously covered me with His blood. I deserve the Father’s wrath, but Jesus secured His forgiveness of my sins by dying in my place.
The updated music to John Wesley’s 1742 hymn, “Arise, My Soul, Arise” captures the liberating joy I feel when I remember that Christ has freed me from the sin that condemned me. It fits the powerful lyrics that exalt the Lord by celebrating His wonderful grace toward wretched sinners.
If you’ve received that grace, I know you’ll identify with Wesley’s word’s of celebration. And if you haven’t, please turn from sin and trust Jesus as your Savior. Don’t miss out on the joy that this hymn describes!
