THE REALITIES OF THE CHRISTIAN LIFE EPH 1:3-14

by Clay Corvin on August 24, 2014

Praise the Lord, His will is perfect, He is always good
The Holy Trinity-Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is the source of our blessing
His blessings showered upon us in the heavenlies, where Satan roams
That prince of the powers of the air may haunt the heavenlies
Rest assured that Jesus Christ has already won the victory
Calling us to trust and obey-walk in obedience-claim this gift-He gives it for you

We are beings caught in time-I was, I am, I will be
Jesus is timeless-before Abraham I am
If the Father hadn’t chosen me before the foundation of the world He wouldn’t choose me now
He removed all of our sin-He saves us, He sanctifies us, He gives us His righteousness
The Father sees us in Christ, holy and without blemish, making us His sons and daughters
God made us His beloved, it wasn’t our idea

Christ forgives our sin by the riches of His grace- divine and human
His grace providing for our need-we don’t deserve it, it is free to you and me
We are loved and He loves us because He chose to love us
He does what He does because He is what He is, God is love
One day all things will be summed up in Jesus
Jesus is God’s everything-beyond anything we can imagine

The Holy Spirit is seeking to enable us
He doesn’t bless programs and performances-He blesses His Word
It speaks to us, giving us wisdom mercy and grace, speaking salvation to us
Witnessing to our belief, guiding our faith-Active in me
We are sealed by the Holy Spirit, nothing can separate us from Jesus
In Christ we are free, He loves you and me, to the praise of His glory

A man of courage, living everyday the way he believed
He loved his wife, she was his guiding star
Devoted to his children, each the best and the most important
Every one he met was special, a man of deep faith

His life was too brief, how often does one this great come our way
Generosity was a strength, he looked for those in need
He cared for his church and his church family
Joy on the journey was his creed

Work was important and he worked with excellence
His vigor legendary, his service herculean
All around us are things he created, marvelous
We will miss his guiding hand so much

A strong shoulder
Listening ear
Quiet strength
He loved a good laugh

A helper, a leader, a shining star
His presence brightened the room
His care encouraged and strengthened
He wanted to help others

Never first in line but first to pay
Didn’t demand his rights but would fight for yours
Lived his life with power from Christ
He was God’s man first and last

Epic, significant, servant
A great man who loved the Lord with all his heart
He passed our way and called us friend
A blessing from the Lord, We loved him and will desperately miss him

We will see you again my friend
We won’t forget you
We will carryon with you in our heart
Adios, good bye, shalom
