Jesus Centre Stage

All things come to an end

There’s always an end to the story

But there’s one story that never ends

Where death is swallowed up and life is eternal

God places me in this story

Through His Son Jesus

His great gospel narrative

Is global

Is huge

Is the biggest story ever seen or heard

There’s none that can top it

All who call on His name 

Become part of His story

Making history 

No one is to be left out

Every character has a role to play

A personal biography

Within the great narrative

It keeps growing

Always enlarging

It’s magnitude 

Is beyond human calculation

With the farthest reaching effect of all

That includes people from

Every tribe and tongue

For all eternity

The final blow

Take your best shot

That’s what happened 2000 years ago

It was the final shot

A death blow

It caused the Messiah of the world

To cry out

It is finished

The ultimate blow

Was submitted to the ultimate power

Of resurrection love

Death lost its hold

Became powerless to hold me in the grave

Received it’s marching orders

The greatest enemy of mankind

My enemy

Lost its sting

Was swallowed up

In victory

The victory of the cross

Through Christ our overcoming 

Risen King

Gratitude

Father I celebrate Your grace

Without it I wouldn’t know You

Within it I am eternally found

Saved from my own wretchedness

Given life abundant

How kind You are

Compassionate with every touch

Speaking living words deep inside

Affirming I belong

You chose me

Found me

Brought me home

Adopted me

As Your very own 

As a son

My birthright is final

As final as the work of the cross

It is finished

Jesus full of grace

Your grace is everything to me

More than the world and all I hold dear

It caused my heart to beat

And gave me notes to sing

It glistened across every tear drop

And wiped away every stain and sin

Before Your grace came

I was lost and alone in the deepest hollow of despair

But You came full of grace and truth

Set me free to be a child of God

So I can pray

Our Father

And celebrate Your grace today
