It’s the church that we are called to be

Because Christ died on Calvary’s tree

It was the lost He came to save

Death couldn’t hold Him in the grave

On the third day He rose to life

To conquer sin and strife

It was His message that was spread

From His Word is where it’s read

His commands we learn to obey

As we walk with Him each day

He came to redeem us all

From the curse of the fall

He will come in and change your heart

From there you will be set apart

We then have a new life to live

It’s our service we learn to give

The church is who we are called to be

Now this is the call for you and me

It was is in the wee hours of a star lit night

Wise men were guided by a star so bright

They were following what the prophets foretold

Bringing with them myrrh, frankincense, and gold

They were gifts for the new born king

The child of which the angels did sing

Conceived by God’s Spirit not by a man

Born of a virgin for this was God’s plan

Sent from God this child sublime

Redemption came from this perfect paradigm

This child came with a message that He must tell

His message of redemption that saves us from hell

This message of redemption we all must hear

Oh Holy Spirit come open our ears

Open our hearts to receive God’s Word

The message of Christ is the message we heard

The Son of God is King at birth

His message is told throughout the earth

If you’re in need of hope on Christmas this year

It’s the message of Christ I pray that you hear

I awoke one morning with pain in my heart

Trying to find words is a hard start

I describe the pain as one big hole

Empty was I with an ache in my soul

I describe the ache with one big sigh

Temptation set in and I wanted to get high

My mouth began to water, I got a taste in my mouth

My mind began to wonder and my thoughts went south

I start thinking about back in the day

How I started using drugs and lost my own way

My soul became empty and broken was I

My thoughts were churning how I wanted to die

I needed a fix and I needed it right then

Broken was I and I thought it was the end

I rolled onto to the floor and on to my knees

I said a quick prayer, Lord will You please

I heard a soft voice whisper in my ear

Come to me child I’ll draw you near

That was the day my life began to change

I found a Savior in Christ who no longer was strange

I gave Him my life and submitted to His ways

With the strength of His Spirit, I don’t have to stray

I call Him my friend, I call Him my Lord

I stay in His Word to sharpen my Sword

He led me with His Spirit and filled that hole

I am no longer empty I gave Him my soul

It’s God’s love we’re called to display

Our walk is how we show it from day to day

Our life is to show His amazing grace

It’s not about how fast we run this race

We’re called to be kind and love everyone

Our life is to reflect how grace was won

It’s all about how God showed His love for man

To put Christ on a cross was God’s plan

It was the only way for man to be redeemed

Because we won’t stop turning our back on God it seems

The cross is God’s way to show His love

After the cross Christ ascended to heaven above

Then He sent His Spirit to be our guiding light

He helps us obey His commands in this fight

His Spirit convicts us of our sin

Then helps us walk out of the mess we’re in

He forgives our sin as we confess

He calms our anxiety and our stress

Christ will then transform and cleanse our heart

From then from the world we will be set apart

As we read His Word our minds get renewed

Which changes our whole attitude

Now we want to live and serve our God

Who loves us even though we’re flawed

My Father is known for His grace

This is a gift that I must embrace

As I learn to walk with God

One by one He heals me of my flaws

I’ve been called to live by His ways

Staying in His Word helps me not to stray

I submit to Him all my life

This helps not to act out in strife

Christ is my Lord He is my King

I know I can trust Him in everything

He prunes and trims me so I grow

I read His Word so it I will know

I’m a follower of the most High

He set me free so no longer will I die

I follow His ways I follow His Word

It’s the Gospel Message that I have heard

He calls me His child He calls me friend

This message of grace will free you from sin

The wind is blowing strong and fierce

Could this be a sign of how Gods Word can pierce

It penetrates the heart both deep and wide

The conviction reaches my hearts insides

As it reaches depths unknown to me

BAM!! Snaps a chain Christ sets me free

One by one strongholds break

In their skin demons quake

God’s Word is what must be spoken

To all who are lost and all who are broken

It’s my life I know must change

My motives are what needs rearranged

As I put God’s Word inside

It’s my sin I no longer can hide

As I put my trust in God

I lean on Christ not my flaws

So open your heart, open your ears

It’s the message of Christ I pray that you hear

I pray that His Word will penetrate your heart

So In Christ you’ll have a new start

Christ died up on the Cross

Yes He died for you the lost

You might not be lost but may be broken

It is in Christ who we find hope in

He died for you and was raised to life

He conquered the grave , He can conquer strife

It is by His Blood we are set free

This is why Christ hung on a tree

So if you are in need of hope in some way

I hope you find freedom In Christ on this day
