Living for You

April 2, 2013

1 Peter 4:1-2
Therefore, since Christ suffered in his body, arm yourselves also with the same attitude, because he who has suffered in his body is done with sin. 2As a result, he does not live the rest of his earthly life for evil human desires, but rather for the will of God.

Living for You

Walking up the golden steps of life aligned with you.
You wash my feet from dusty paths where life went askew.
You placed confidence and integrity in my soul,
Where I once was in shame, now I can be bold.

You establish my walk, lest my foot should slip in the way,
You keep me in your perfect peace and bid me there to stay.
Abiding in faith and obedience, there I find Your rest,
As I abide in who I am in You, You bring through every test.

The victory of life is not in what I can accomplish on my own,
But in receiving Your finished work and the cross You bore alone.
My righteousness is not in what I’ve done for You, but what You’ve done for me.
You bore my sin upon Your cross and from the law of sin You have set me free.

My freedom cost You everything and everything you freely gave,
You left Your throne of glory, this wretched soul to save.
So I lean upon You Savior, my life I fully give.
Be glorified through me as Your Life in me, I live.
