A message for Easter: Come Awake!

In Christ we died and rose to new life (2 Corinthians 5:14-17). This is the gospel, and the gospel-shaped invitation that flows from it is this: Come Awake! -- live into the reality of who you truly are in Christ. The video below powerfully offers this simple, yet profound invitation using the song "Christ is Risen" by Matt Maher and Mia Fieldes. Here is part of the lyrics:
Christ is risen from the dead,
trampling over death by death,
come awake, come awake,
come and rise up from the grave!
O death, where is your sting?
O hell, where is your victory?
O church, come stand in the light
The glory of God has defeated the night!

If you'd like to show this video in worship, you can purchase it at Worship House Media or Igniter Media. Free lyrics and chord sheets and information about purchasing the song are found at WorshipTogether.
