“For His Glory”

“For His Glory”

Who are we that God notices us?
Creator of All; Transcendent King
Why did He send His Son to die?
On the Cross, a Perfect Offering

Why does He hear our prayers?
In Jesus, we have righteousness
How can we receive forgiveness?
When our sins to Him we confess

Why were we put upon this earth?
For His glory, and because He lives
What motivates us to live for Him?
Because He is ours; and we are His

Ephesians 2:4-7 (NASB)
4 But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,
5 even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),
6 and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,
7 so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.

“My Abba Always”

“My Abba Always”

Many pursuits I chased along the way
To quell the rising despair in my soul
Fighting to survive through the day
Fear choking me in its tight control

In the mystery of Your perfect will
In the scope of Your grand design
My heart’s tumult You made still
Your Son gave His life for mine

Your gift of salvation I cherish
Everlasting life I possess in You
For I surely would have perished
Had You not shown me the Truth

Who am I that You consider me
For it was You who loved me first
You forever changed my destiny
Freed me from sin’s eternal curse

Heavenly Father; My Glorious King
My words express to You my praise
An abiding gratitude to You I bring
My Eternal God; My Abba Always

Galatians 4:6 (NASB)
Because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!”
