In Christ

As I was partaking of the communion at church yesterday, it sunk in that I forgot who I was.  Once when communion was finishing the worship team started singing “In Christ Alone” it hit me, I am not alone.  I have Christ and He is the one that is making me who I am, not me.  Then the sermon just topped it off.

Here is a few things that stood out to me in the sermon:

  • Every single day matters.
  • How often do I have a great day?
  • Do something today that YOUR future self WILL thank you for!
  • Am I going to live with pain of discipline or pain of regret?
  • Today matters!
  • Psalm 118:24 (NLT) This is the day the LORD has made.  We will rejoice and be glad in it.

In Christ Alone

In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song
This Cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm

What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when striving cease
My Comforter, my All in All
Here in the love of Christ I stand

In Christ alone, who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless Babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save

Til on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave He rose again

And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ

No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life’s first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny

No power of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand
Til He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I stand

On Christ the solid rock I stand
All other ground is sinking sand
All other ground, all other ground
Is sinking sand.
