Sabbath Sanctuary: The Doxology Giving Praise To God

 Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God. Whatever you do in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father” {Col. 3:16-17 NASB}.

He Is Not Here, He Is Risen!

 and as the women were terrified and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, ‘Why are you seeking the living One among the dead?  He is not here, but He has risen. Remember how He spoke to you while He was still in Galilee, saying that the Son of Man must be handed over to sinful men, and be crucified, and on the third day rise from the dead’” (Lk. 24:5-7 NASB).

Happy Resurrection Sunday! He is risen!

His Passion

I stand here and look up to a cross on a hill
All of creation was in chaos but yet I was still
Amazed at the way you were beaten and torn
How could they hate you and show you only scorn?

Do they know that you did this out of such love?
Do they know you were sent here from above?
Yet it must be done so that all is as you have said
Oh Lord your torn body and the thorns in your head!

Oh Lord I helped drive that nail through your hand
Because we all turned away and sinned every man
You were led away as a lamb to the slaughter
Yet you did it to redeem every son and daughter

Oh Lord I pray let not your death be in vain
Or that I take for granted your suffering and pain
May I be faithful to you up until death
May I never deny you till I take my last breath

This was my passion I knew I must die
But not for long would I in a grave lie
For every person of creation was before my face
As I gladly died to pour out God’s grace

I was crucified so that all people will be
Chosen, cleansed and set apart for me
I long to know you and to call you my friend
So that we will be together always to the end

I gave you my body I Am the Bread of Life
You are my spotless bride my beloved wife
I gave my blood poured out just for you
When you drink you are free, cleansed and anew

Take my body and blood in remembrance of me
Remember that I died to set every person free
I long to commune with you and call you by name
I paid the price so that you will never be the same
