Nothing thrills me as thoroughly as singing about Christ’s victory over death, and the astounding promise that He will one day raise our bodies so that we might live forever gazing on His glorious Face! Resurrection Sunday has got to be the most joyous holiday ever celebrated because it rejoices in Christ’s wonderful conquering of sin’s power! Through His resurrection, He empowers believers to resist sin, thereby ensuring that death cannot claim us!
I’m breaking a cardinal rule of punctuation with all these exclamation marks, but I simply don’t see how I can write about the Lord Jesus Christ without expressing excitement over His triumphant resurrection. Blame it on today’s hymn, which I’ve never been able to sing without tears in my eyes and my heart swelling with uncontrollable joy! How can I avoid exclamation marks?
Hallelujah! Christ arose!
