The Gospel

A restless generation
We’re turning over every stone
Hoping to find salvation
In a world that’s left us cold

Can we get back to the altar?
Back to the arms of our first love
There’s only one way to the Father
And He’s calling out to us

To the captive, it looks like freedom
To the orphan, it feels like home
To the skeptic, it might sound crazy
To believe in a God who loves

In a world, where our hearts are breaking
And we’re lost in the mess we’ve made
Like a blinding light, in the dead of night
It’s the Gospel
The Gospel that makes a way
It’s the Gospel that makes a way

It’s the cure for our condition
It’s the good news for us all
It’s greater than religion
It’s the power of the Cross

The amazing news of the Gospel
Is not that we can receive Jesus into our lives
But that He’s already received us
Into​ His

In my own life, it means forgiveness
When I know I deserved the fall
It called me out of my darkness
And carried me to the Cross

In a moment, my eyes were opened
In that moment, my heart was changed
Like a blinding light, in the dead of night
It’s the Gospel

1 Corinthians 15:21-23 So you see, just as death came into the world through a man, now the resurrection from the dead has begun through another man. 22  Just as everyone dies because we all belong to Adam, everyone who belongs to Christ will be given new life. 23 But there is an order to this resurrection: Christ was raised as the first of the harvest; then all who belong to Christ will be raised when he comes back.
