This is Amazing Grace

I went to a Woman’s Conference called Embrace a few nights ago. The worship was amazing. We sang this song which I had never heard before. I loved it! The words just touched my heart. I just love when song lyrics hit you in the face.

This is Amazing Grace – Phil Wickham

Who breaks the power of sin and darkness
Whose love is mighty and so much stronger
The King of Glory, the King above all kings

Who shakes the whole earth with holy thunder
And leaves us breathless in awe and wonder
The King of Glory, the King above all kings

This is amazing grace
This is unfailing love
That You would take my place
That You would bear my cross
You lay down Your life
That I would be set free
Oh, Jesus, I sing for
All that You’ve done for me

Who brings our chaos back into order
Who makes the orphan a son and daughter
The King of Glory, the King of Glory

Who rules the nations with truth and justice
Shines like the sun in all of its brilliance
The King of Glory, the King above all kings

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Worthy is the King who conquered the grave
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Worthy is the King who conquered the grave
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Worthy is the King who conquered the grave
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Worthy, worthy, worthy

95/365: Alive

alive_big

95/365: Alive — Yesterday I wrote about the burial of Jesus. I finished saying that death could not beat Him. Today Christians remember that on the third day Jesus rose from the dead. He defeated the grave. He is alive. I believe that He lives inside of me. I thank God often that Jesus died and rose again. It is by His grace and mercy that I am free. Through the death and resurrection of Jesus my sins are forgiven and I have eternal life.

He said to them “Thus it is written, that the Christ would suffer and rise again from the dead the third day.” (Luke 24 verse 26)

At The Cross (Love Ran Red)

Where Your love ran red and my sin washed white, I’m in awe of You

Jesus died on the cross to pay my debt, a debt that I could never pay myself. He suffered because of me and my sin. Despite my imperfections and my failings He stretched out His arms and declared His love for me. It is only through His love that I am free.

93/365: Blood — Today marks one of the most important days in the Christian calender. Christians across the world will be remembering the day that Jesus died. His death was cruel and painful. He did not deserve what was thrown at Him. It should have been us on that cross. He was nailed to the cross because of us, because of our actions. But God loved us far too much to see us die. I would imagine that He loved Jesus so much more. His love for us saw Him sacrifice His only son. Jesus suffered and died on that cross because of God’s love for us. Jesus died so that we could live. We needed a Saviour because we would never be able to save ourselves.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life (John 3 verse 16)

84/365: Sin

sin

84/365: Sin — As a Christian I realise I am full of sin. I sin all the time which means I fall short of God’s glory. I fail God daily because of my sin, from the little white lies to the hurtful words I say to those around me. Whilst I am living on this Earth I will always be a sinner. I will always mess up and get things wrong. I am  thankful that Jesus died for my sin. The only reason that Heaven is possible for me is Jesus. His death has brought me new life.

62/365: Sacrifice

62/365: Sacrifice — When we sacrifice something we give it up. The reason many people make sacrifices is because of their love or admiration for another person. Sometimes we can sacrifice our own happiness to see someone else happy. We can sacrifice our time in order to help others. One of the greatest sacrifices that has been done for me is by my Saviour. God sacrificed His ONE and ONLY son for me. My sin held Jesus on the cross. My sin saw Jesus die a painful death. No other sacrifice will match or be greater. This one sacrifice changed my life as well as the lives of millions of people around the world.
