Freedom In Christ

 

Born as a babe

a Savior is come

To a lost world

where sin they succumb

He came as a Savior

He came as a King

A message to the broken

is what He did bring

He raised the dead

the sick He healed

With a message for hearts

His Word is revealed

He called them out of darkness

in sin they were lost

He obeyed His Father

all the way to the cross

He was beaten and bullied

He was nailed to the tree

He completed Gods plan

by dying for you and me

Redemption was planned

since before the fall

To those that believe

their life has a call

In Jesus we believe

that He conquered the grave

Death couldn’t hold Him

in three days He was raised

Salvation He offers

forgiveness He gives

Freedom in Christ

is how we now life

Nails Times Three

It was Christ on the cross

That tore the veil

He was the ransom for sin

That was sending me to hell

 

Nails times three

He was nailed to the tree

He came with a purpose

Then died at Calvary

 

It is a message with purpose

That will not tickle your ears

It gives sight to the blind

Oh, how I can now hear

 

He won’t leave you alone

He is drawing you near

His message has hope

For all that want to hear

 

He has called you out of darkness

So, you can walk in His light

He’ll give you His strength

To endure thru this fight

 

Our battles are won

When we steady the course

It’s our heart that He wants

But won’t take it by force

 

Will you join this here race

Will you endure to the end

Will you walk with the Lord

As He calls you His friend

Romans 10:9 If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

Christ Broke My Chains

He Set Me Free

 

You broke my chains to set me free

I now have hope because I believe

 

I believe in Jesus, He is the Christ

He is the perfect Lamb that was sacrificed

 

His Blood was spilled on that tree

He died on the cross to set me free

 

He conquered death over the grave

Three days later to life He was raised

 

He ascended to Heaven to sit on His throne

Heaven is the place we now call home

 

He called me out of darkness into the light

He gave me His Spirit to help in this fight

 

When I stumble and when I fall

I know His voice when He calls

 

When I make mistakes and my sin sticks out

He’s always there to show me a different route

 

I want my desires to match His ways

So, on this path I will not stray

 

I now have hope because I believe

Christ Broke My Chains

 He set me Free

Know the Lord and He will know you

Obey His Word and know that He’s true

He’s faithful and kind for this I know

Walk in His ways and His Truth will show

Draw to the Lord and He will draw you in

He died on the cross to forgive all your sin

He conquered death and rose from the grave

He obeyed God so your soul He will save

Give Him your life and submit to His will

Your life will have joy that’s more than a thrill

He will give you His Spirit and guide your way

From His path you will never have to stray

Call out to God and He will give you His hand

He will free you from bondage so you can enter the land

He knows your struggles that hold you back

He’ll hold you close when under attack

When you want to hide behind a wall of fear

He’ll hold you in close and dry every tear

He will forever be your guiding light

By removing the scales to give you His sight

Now ask Him for strength to run this very race

Then bring Him your burdens in exchange for His grace

I hear voices what do they say

One says love and another says stray

If I love what must I do

Follow Gods heart and forever be true

If I stray where will I go

Down the wrong path, away from my hope

 

I have sin, it’s deep in my heart

I have Your Spirit, which is where I should start

When sin is my greatest desire

Then trusting the world is my greatest empire

It’s You that gives me direction

Thru Your Spirit I get my correction

 

Your love covers all my sin

And the battle that rages within

I know it’s you that I alone can trust

Faith in You for me is a must

When You died on Cavalry’s Tree

You rose from the grave to set me free

 

I know I can trust in Your Word

For it’s the Gospel Message I have heard

Your Blood freed me from the bondage of sin

Now it’s the abundant life that I live in

Lord, You provide hope in this life I live

Now service to You I freely give

A fool in his heart says there’s no God

We have to ask for grace because we are flawed

Sin entered the world thru rebellion of one man

Tho the redemption of one man God had a plan

In the likeness of man God sent His Son

Thru His death on the cross salvation was won

Forgiveness is what He extended to all

God’s grace is what covered the fall

If you believe in your heart not just your head

That Jesus is God and He was raised from the dead

Then you will be saved from death caused by sin

His Spirit will now come and live within

Have you confessed with your mouth that Jesus is God

Because His love on the cross covers over our flaws

This is fact, not fiction, not false, but True

It comes from the Word of God and He’s looking for you

If you have a question or burden deep down in your heart

Look to Jesus as Savior for He’ll give you a new start

This is God’s story, this is His song

It’s the Word I will preach all day the day long

Romans 10:9

If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

Amen!

Up Against A Wall

When struggles arise where shall I turn

I lean on Gods Spirit or my desires will churn

It’s His Holy Spirit that is my defense

Whether up against a wall or backed into a fence

He is the strength that carries me thru

When my thoughts run rampant and are askew

He provides freedom from the bondage of sin

Thank God for His Spirit who now lives within

I’m now a disciple and try to follow Gods Word

It’s His message of grace, I hope you have heard

Jesus came from heaven to walk with mankind

He came to save souls and to leave no one behind

He walked as a man for three and a half years

To tell His message of grace for all that will hear

He was the ransom for sin and died on the cross

To save me and you and all who are lost

Now walk in the Spirit and walk in His ways

Stay on Gods path and try not to stray

Be the new creature that you have become

Watch your evil desires and do not succumb

Life following Jesus is better you see

Submit to God, resist the devil and he’ll flee

James 4:7

Submit yourselves to God, resist the devil and he’ll flee.
