Christ In Me Arise


Trevor Thomson

The ancient Greek philosopher, Socrates, said: "The unexamined life is not worth living for a human being." This may not seem true when one begins the interior life. As we mature in our walk with the Lord, we find that the comfort we once felt from the gospel now turns to hard challenges.

Many people who are in need of comfort come to the Lord and find rest for their weary souls. There is no doubt that this is part of the gospel. However, God invites us into deep intimacy with him and that means that we cannot stay at stage one of our journey with the Lord. We are to go deeper into ourselves and ask the question: "Is God alone enough for me?" It is the constant question for true disciples.

The answer to that question is found in the interior life. Diving deeply into our souls, we find darkness. Hurt and resentment, selfishness and pain, callousness and jealousy: these are not easy to look at and seems to fly in the face of the quote from Socrates. What good is self-examination if we find darkness and no hope? It is worthless. The good news lies in the fact that there is hope. The resurrection of Jesus is our hope

Christ In Me Arise is an earnest cry to Our Lord after encountering the darkness of hurt, sin, and pain. It is acknowledgement that we have a destiny in the Christ Jesus. The song asks Jesus to take us on a journey to the Father's Kingdom where we will live in the resurrection for Jesus the Christ ....forever! He yearns to share his resurrection with us and we yearn to experience it. Diving deeply within ourselves and examining our hearts is a life worth living when we have the hope Jesus Christ.
