In Christ Alone

My sister Jessi had a bell concert today. It was very nice. They played this one song that is called In Christ Alone. I have heard this song before but just today I actually listened to the words. I love this song, it fully explains how I feel about God and says exactly what I was trying to tell you in my last post. Here are the lyrics.

In Christ Alone
In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song
This cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My comforter, my all in all
Here in the love of Christ I stand

In Christ alone, Who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save
'Til on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For ev'ry sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious day
Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin's curse has lost its grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ

No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the pow'r of Christ in me
From life's first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No pow'r of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand
'Til He returns or calls me home
Here in the pow'r of Christ I'll stand

How do people live without God? I mean, I know how they live physically. But how do you find meaning in your life? You can't find it through social standing, money, sex, drugs, alcohol, or anything physical.

If I didn't believe in God, I'm telling you I would be one really angry, depressed person. What would there be to look forward to? What would be the purpose to even live if God didn't exist?

God is always there for me when I need him. Weather I notice him or not. He's there for me when I'm sad, angry, frustrated, depressed, etc. He is the reason I wake up in the morning, my reason to hope for the future, my reason why I can forget my past mistakes, and my reason to live.

He is the reason I live!

He is the reason why many of us live today and will live forevermore with him when we die. And the most amazing thing is.............

We don't deserve any of it.

So, is God the reason why you live? Why you hope for tomorrow? Or do you not believe in God? I am not judging you, I am only feeling sorry for you. Because even if you had all the riches in the world, I wouldn't trade it for God. I would much rather live in a shack than ever give up God. He is my reason to live, and I hope that He will be yours someday.
