“Sanctification”

“Sanctification”

Sanctification is an ongoing and lifelong process
As the vestiges of this world the Spirit strips away
The sin that we hide; the thin veneer of our pride
Is exposed to the Light; as night is turned into day

The idols that captivate us; those beautiful illusions
Shatter as Truth’s Sword smashes them one by one
Taking their place is God’s Holiness and His grace
The masterpiece-to-be; a mirror image of God’s Son

II Corinthians 3:18 (NASB)
But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit.

I Corinthians 15:49 (NASB) Just as we have borne the image of the earthy, we will also bear the image of the heavenly.

Philippians 1:6 (NASB)
For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.

“For Once And For Always”

“For Once and For Always”

For once and for always; forever we have been saved
So extraordinary a price for us that Jesus Christ paid
He made Himself a guilt offering for us at the Cross
Perfect, Holy Lamb slain; He willingly paid the cost
While once we were dead in sin, He raised us to life
Brought us out of darkness into His Everlasting Light
Broken, brittle hearts; He fashioned completely new
Blind, dark minds; He opened to the purity of Truth
Once we were searching; we found our hope in Him
Once we were empty; now His Spirit resides within

Hebrews 7:25 (NASB)
Therefore He is able also to save forever those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.

John 10:27-29 (NASB)
27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me;
28 and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand.
29 My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand.
