I am chosen, I am free
I am living for eternity
Free now forever
You pick me up, turn me around
You set my feet on solid ground
Yours now forever

And nothing’s gonna hold me back
Nothing’s gonna hold me back
Nothing’s gonna hold me back

My chains fell off, my heart was free
I’m alive to live for You
I’m alive to live for You
Amazing love, how can it be?
You gave everything for me
You gave everything for me

You’ve washed my sin and shame away
The slate is clean, a brand new day
Free now forever
Now boldly I approach Your throne
To claim this crown through Christ my own
Yours now forever, yeah

And I’m free to live, free to give, free to be
I’m free to love You
Free to live, free to give, free to be
I’m free to love You
Free to live, free to give, free to be
I’m free to love You, Lord

Keeping The Faith: Being Offended

Gives reasons why Christians should not be offended by people who are faithless, rude, obnoxious and walking the path opposite of faith in Jesus Christ.

When I was a young kid I used to feel very hurt by offensive words and manners of people. [To tell the truth, I must confess, I still am]. What hurts the most is that I used to always think to myself ‘doesn’t this person know what their words are communicating and that their tone of voice, attitude and manner of actions are really distressing me.’ All the while I was so afraid to say anything, since I was such a timid person. Well, I never got over this initial shock of insensitive people to others. It seemed to me that they had learned to make their voices heard at no matter what costs it was to others. To this day I do not know where I obtained my sensitivity, but I find it a precious thing.

When we make the decision to become a Christian, our guidelines should be based on the Bible, yet today we have several individuals who profess to be Christians and still refuse to use the Bible as an example. These same individuals refer to god’s word, but use it only when the words suit them or their cause. That is not what God wants from us, we are expected to follow the Bible and Gods word completely.

The Bible is very clear in how we are supposed to act in our sexual orientation. We cannot profess to be Christians, yet blatantly disobey the word of God, just because it does not suit us. There will come a time when we will be expected to account for our actions in this matter and you can expect a similar reaction as Sodom and Gomorrah.

Not because you appreciate how a woman wears her clothes, should you choose to wear them. Men (and women) are expected to wears their clothes, not each others. Cross dressers are just as guilty of going against God’s word as individuals who choose members of their own sex to go to bed with. We should not confuse the enjoyment of someone’s company, (as a friend) to crossing that very serious line to the same sex relationship.

Bible principles are very important for us to live by, simply because this is how we tell God and the rest of the world where our priorities lie. It is pointless telling the world that we believe in God and we will follow him forever, yet we  insist on living a life that he would obviously not approve of.

Christianity is all about Jesus Christ and what he has done for us. Even though we are sinners, (and we know it) we are not expected to maintain a life of sin, in fact if we are genuine Christians, the desire to sin and live a life contrary to God’s expectations would be intolerable.

We’ve got nothing to lose
We’ve got no reason to hide
We’ve got the answer inside of us
It’s time we took the disguises off

We’ll see Your glory revealed
And see Your name lifted high
There’s nobody else for us
Jesus, You are the only one

Woah!
You’re alive and we are free
You are everything, everything we need!
Woah!

There’s not a minute to waste
Not a second to lose
There’s a city that waits for us
It’s time we took all the lamp shades off

Woah!
You’re alive and we are free
You are everything, everything we need
Woah!
Love has spoken and we believe
You are everything, everything we need
Woah!

Wo – oah
Wo – oah
Wo – oah

Nothing compares to You
Nothing could ever separate us now
Your love is ours

Nothing can separate us
Nothing can come between us
Nothing can separate us now
