Romans 4:13-25

13 For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith. 14 For if they which are of the law be heirs, faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect: 15 Because the law worketh wrath: for where no law is, there is no transgression. 16 Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all, 17 (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were. 18 Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations; according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be. 19 And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb: 20 He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; 21 And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform. 22 And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness. 23 Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed to him; 24 But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead; 25 Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.

Justified by faith…
Restored unto righteousness…
Not having earned salvation, no…
But having been given restoration,
Lifted up from shame…
Made forever sane…
Brought to peace of mind…
Through God’s love divine.
Made free,
Called out from slavery and darkness
To His precious light.
Delivered from obscurity
To be now beacons of liberty.
Now we shine brightly,
not because of ourselves but rather,
We hold his light within this bodily frame.

Consecrated,
Separated,
Justified,
Crucified in the flesh
That we may live
in the countenance of grace.
Love divine,
World without end.
Sanctified,
Vivified that we may show forth
the praises of Him…
Who has not forsaken us
But rescued us from sin.

Transformed…
Reformed…
Remade like clay…
He being the Potter…
We being remade…
He has made a new life where there was strife.
He has given his image and his light ,
That his reflection will we impart…
As we are mirrors
And He is evidenced in our lives.

Let us therefore shine…
Let us proclaim…
With our mouths and with our aim…
Let us live out His purpose
And his Plan divine…
Let His image be yours and mine.
Let us be His hands…
Let us be His feet…
Let us proclaim Christ’s victory.

Death where is your sting…
Shame where have you been…
Have you not heard…
It is finished…
Christ is the One Redeemer.
He has bought us with a high, high price…
He has called us to his marvelous life.

We are called,
Elected and true…
Transformed, by His mercy, renewed.
Not of anything we could have done…
Has he called us his daughters and sons.

Oh praise the Most High…
Oh lift up the trumpet
and let there resound
The sound of rejoicing
What’s lost has been found.
Our tragedy is no longer there
For we through Him,
Have been spared.

His blood has covered all of my shame.
His love has delivered me from this pain…
Once rejected, Cast off and confused,
Now with purpose, belonging and secure.

This Christmas is not for me
some small celebration.
No, it is for me the retelling
Of my salvation.

Glory to God in the highest…
Our Redeemer Lives.
No longer in a Manger does He lay
He Has made for us a way.
Completing heaven’s plan sublime
He has made a way for us to climb.
Heaven’s gates He has opened up for us.
All we have to do is trust.
Believe without wavering and see…
The joy of being set free.

Glory to the Son of Mary…
The one who grew and died on Calvary,
Blessed is the name of Jesus,
Who is God incarnate our Redeemer.
He died up on that very tree…
To Save you and me, yes us, free.

Come now and bend the knee
Come and rejoice with me.
For unto us a child was given…
And unto us was poured forgiveness.
For unto us who once were blind…
Has now been given sight divine.

Heaven, Eternity, Peace and Prosperity.
Hope, Serenity, Position of authority.
Co heirs with Christ we have been made…
When we surrender to His grace.

Halleluyah , Halleluya
Glory to God in the highest.
