Lent: Day 11
Once And For All
Once and for all, the Father’s love He is the light in the darkness He took on flesh and took our place The weight of the world on His shoulders The weight of the world on His shoulders
We believe our God is Jesus We believe that He is Lord We believe that He has saved us From sin and death once and for all
Once and for all, our debt is paid, There on the cross it is finished! The Lamb of God for us was slain Up from the grave He is risen, Up from the grave He is risen!
Jesus, Jesus, God from God, Light from light, You are our Salvation Jesus, Jesus, God from God, Light from light, Your kingdom is forever
1 Peter 3:18 For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive in the Spirit.
John 19-20 A jar full of sour wine was standing there; so they put a sponge full of the sour wine upon a branch of hyssop and brought it up to His mouth. Therefore when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, "It is finished!" And He bowed His head and gave up His spirit.
Today will be a struggle. Almost every day is a struggle of a kind. Sometimes you reach the end of the day and your endeavor feels fruitful and worthwhile. Other times it feels unimportant, even futile. But God wastes nothing. Our lives are no longer serving the debit column. We are not repaying God back for what is lost. We are firmly in the credit column. Free to invest our lives in His eternal Kingdom.
HOLY SPIRIT help me to know that my debt is paid and help me to see the riches I have been given!
