Grace Through and Through

By grace through faith in Christ alone,
God blesses with justification,
And by the Holy Spirit’s power,
God works for our sanctification,
And when we see the Lord on high,
He’ll bestow on us glorification,
And we’ll worship and praise His holy name,
For his wondrous gift of salvation.

MT 2022

Rom 3:24  being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, 

Promises

You promised to never forsake us,
You promised to stay by our side,
You promised to redeem and remake us,
You promised Your love would abide.

You promised eternal life to us,
You promised to shepherd if we roam,
You promised You would go before us,
You promised a heavenly home.

You promised we could call on You always,
You promised we can call You our friend,
You promised you would make You home with us,
You promised us life without end.

MT 2022

2Pe 1:4  by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 

Already, Not Yet

Those who are born again in Christ
Who a second time are reborn,
May find weeping endures for a night
But joy comes in the morn.

Those who are born again in Christ
And given the second birth,
Will live in His presence forever
When His kingdom reigns on earth.

Those who are born again in Christ
Will be wholly transformed and made new,
Into the image of Christ the king
By the Lord who is faithful and true.

MT 2022

2Co 3:18  But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. 

Php 3:20  For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, 
Php 3:21  who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself. 

Falling Short

There is a stairway to heaven
But no it cannot be bought
By the silver or gold of sinners
No matter how hard it is sought
For we all fall short of the glory of God
Each and all, the whole human lot
So God sent His Son to pay our sin debt
And help us to learn what He taught.

MT 2022

Rom 3:23  for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 
Rom 3:24  being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,

Who Is This?

Who is this born in Bethlehem?
On a cold, crisp winter morn,
The one foretold by a prophet,
Of a virgin would be born.

Who is this born in Bethlehem?
Born the King of the Jews,
Whom shepherds came to worship,
And wise men paused to muse.

Who is this born in Bethlehem?
Whom Simeon worshiped with joy,
Lifting his voice up loud and clear,
To praise Mary’s baby Boy.

Who is this born in Bethlehem?
The One true Savior and Lord,
Born of David’s royal line,
By heaven and earth adored.

Who is this born in Bethlehem?
Who deserves all honor and glory,
The author and finisher of our faith,
The perfection of God’s love story.

Who is this born in Bethlehem?
Who has come to make all things new,
The sinless, blameless Lamb of God,
The Word of God faithful and true.

Who is this born in Bethlehem?
To reconcile God and man,
Conqueror of sin and death,
Fulfilling God’s master plan.

Who is this born in Bethlehem?
To usher in lasting shalom,
By crushing the serpent’s cursed head,
And leading His children home.

MT 2021

Mat 2:4  And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born.  2:5  So they said to him, “In Bethlehem of Judea, for thus it is written by the prophet:  2:6  ‘BUT YOU, BETHLEHEM, IN THE LAND OF JUDAH, ARE NOT THE LEAST AMONG THE RULERS OF JUDAH; FOR OUT OF YOU SHALL COME A RULER WHO WILL SHEPHERD MY PEOPLE ISRAEL.’ ” 

Unbearable


Christ gives liberty to the captives,
Is a compass for the lost,
He is shelter from the fiercest storm,
When our lives are tempest-tossed,
For His mercy knows no boundaries,
And from heaven to earth His grace crossed,
To fulfill the glorious, ancient plan,
And to bear the unbearable cost.

MT 2021

Mat 27:46  And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is, “MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?” 

Luk 24:26  Ought not the Christ to have suffered these things and to enter into His glory?” 

Willingly

She wasn’t concerned with the gossip,
That the women might spread and tell,
She wasn’t afraid of the scandal,
For her heart and her soul were both well,
For she trusted God as her Father,
That His Word would prove faithful and true,
That this baby Boy that she would bear,
Would be Savior of me and you.

Luk 1:38  Then Mary said, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her.
