“I Stand In Awe”
I have a song in my heart, a song of the gospel of Jesus Christ! It goes far beyond the manger . . .
Silent night, with velvet sky . . . a baby born to die —
John 10:17 “For this reason the Father loves Me, because I lay down My life so that I may take it again.”
John 12:27 “Now My soul has become troubled; and what shall I say, ‘Father, save Me from this hour’? But for this purpose I came to this hour.”
His life was given . . . a debt to pay —
Colossians 2:13 When you were dead in your transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made you alive together with Him, having forgiven us all our transgressions, 14 having canceled out the certificate of debt consisting of decrees against us, which was hostile to us; and He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross.
You were sent to save, Jesus, You were sent to save —
Matthew 1:21 “She will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”
Luke 19:10 “For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”
Acts 2:21 ‘And it shall be that everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’
Gift of God to all the earth
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.
John 4:10 Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.”
To redeem mankind
1Peter 1:18 knowing that you were not redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers, 19 but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ.
The angels speak, the humble hear
Luke 2:10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; 11 for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
James 4:10 Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you.
And You draw them near, so near, and You draw them near
John 12:32 “And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to Myself.”
Unthinkable, Your sacrifice, on the cross it was done —
Hebrews 9:26 Otherwise, He would have needed to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now once at the consummation of the ages He has been manifested to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself.
Philippians 2:5 Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: 6 Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, 7 but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant,
being made in human likeness. 8 And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself and became obedient to death—even death on a cross!
You rose and sent Your Spirit Lord, to fill each willing heart, You will, fill each willing heart —
John 20:16 Jesus said to her, “Mary!” She turned and said to Him in Hebrew, “Rabboni!” (which means, Teacher). 17 Jesus said to her, “Stop clinging to Me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, ‘I ascend to My Father and your Father, and My God and your God.’” 18 Mary Magdalene came, announcing to the disciples, “I have seen the Lord,” and that He had said these things to her.
Romans 1:4 and who through the Spirit of holiness was declared with power to be the Son of God by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord.
Acts 1:5 for John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.” . . . 8 but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.”
Acts 5:32 “And we are witnesses of these things; and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey Him.”
For all You did, and all You are, O glorious, brilliant Morningstar —
Revelation 22:16 “I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things for the churches. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star.”
I stand in awe, what can I do, but bow and praise and worship You!
John 4:23 “But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers.”
You, too, will stand in awe, if you have eyes to see and ears to hear. And you, too, will bow and praise and worship Him!
