With a claim to be eternal
Before the world was ever made
Giver of life and sin forgiver
The only one to come from heaven
The great I AM, One with the Father
The One who was and is to come
Whose every word had full authority
To judge the world or save a soul!
I sing praises to Your name
The name above all names
And bow before Your throne
I stand in awe because You are
More mighty than any other power
Messiah, Jesus, Lord!!
Lord, You taught with authority
Drove out demons with a word
Healed the sick and the dying
At your command the lame could walk
You calmed the storm and walked on water
Fed five thousand from above
You gave sight to the blind and,
You raised the dead, You changed my heart!
I think of all the glory (glory)
That You traded for the cross (traded for the cross)
But the grave it could not hold You (could not hold You)
You, who has a name that’s above all (name above all names)
Many claim You're just a good man
Others just a prophet from above
But Your words and Your actions
Show You were God come to earth
And now risen to the right hand
Of the Father above
In Your name is salvation
Through Your death upon the cross
This is what the journey is all about. Well, not what, rather whom the journey is all about. Yes, it's a journey to heaven, but also a journey to be with the One who claimed to be God and proved it by what he did.
I often hear people claim that Jesus was not God and seek to prove that from the New Testament. They fail to really understand what is going on, and fail to understand Jesus' words in the content of the Old Testament. The Jewish leaders of his day understood exactly what Jesus claimed and wanted to stone him for it!
Thankfully in the New Testament we don't have a Jesus who merely claimed to be God, but also proved it by the healing the sick, raising the dead and himself rising from the dead by His own authority. Messiah, Jesus, Lord!!
Faith is a journey. Faith in Christ is a walk with God that takes the believer along many different roads. A call to start the journey through the message of the Gospel, a response of faith in the One who died on the cross. A journey of joy, love, peace, but at times suffering and trials. Battles with sin and Satan, but always grace to keep us strong and to bring us to our Journey's end; to be with the One who called us to start walking in faith.
