sunday song

God our father, the maker of the heavens and the Earth, loves us so infinitely much that He sent His son Jesus Christ to the Earth as a baby to grow up in this world and live a life that we in no way could have ever hoped to live.  He was perfect.  Then He after living that perfect life we had no hope to live he died the death we so surely deserved thus making a way for us to commune with the heavenly father who loved us so infinitely much.  Death could not defeat Him because three days later he arose.  He went to sit at the right hand of the father but did not leave us to live this life alone.  He sent His Spirit to live inside us and guide us in our everyday life.  Oh what a gift all of this is.  

To me this is the most simplistic yet the most complicated story ever told.  It seems like it should be so easy to think about and accept whole heartedly.  Who wouldn't want to know and live in the fact that we don't have to live a perfect life, we don't have to die for our sins and we don't have to do any of it alone because all of it was done for us.  But all of us, everyday, do not live this out.  

So often, we as Christians do not let it impact every core of our being.  We do not submit to the wonderful gracious authority of our Father in Heaven and our Lord and Savior and to His Spirit living within us.  Instead we continually try to do it on our own.  Try to earn what is not needed to be earned with works that could not make a dent in what we would owe if it had not all been taken care of for us.  It all might manifest in different ways whether you're the "good" girl or the screw up, the workaholic or the lazy, the pious or the loner but rest assured that it does, whether it appears socially acceptable or not, if it's not in Christ it means nothing.   

My prayer for me, for my family, for my friends, and for those believers I don't even know, is that I, we, remember this simple yet complicated story and let it impact us to the center of our very being until the only thing living out in our lives is the gospel in every situation.  


Give me one pure and holy passion
Give me one magnificent obsession
Give me one glorious ambition for my life
To know and follow hard after You

Give me one pure and holy passion
Give me on magnificent obsession
Give me one glorious ambition for my life
To know and follow hard after You

To know and follow hard after you
To grow as your dicsiple in your truth
This world is empty, pale, and poor
Compared to knowing you, my Lord
Lead me on and I will run after you
Lead me on and I will run after you

Give me one pure and holy passion
Give me one magnificent obsession
Give me one glorious ambition for my life
To know and follow hard after you

To know and follow hard after you
To grow as your disciple in the truth
This world is empty, pale, and poor
Compared to knowing you my Lord
Lead me on and I will run after you

Lord to know and follow hard after you
And to grow as your disciple in your truth
This world is empty, pale, and poor
Compared to knowing you my Lord
Lead me on and I will run after you
Lead me on and I will run after you
Lead me on and I will run after you
