Song Of The Month - Made Alive by Citizens

By: Curtis Ophoven 0 Comments   6/19/2013

This song tells us of the amazing thing that the Lord as done. He has bought us back from the dead and made us alive.   

He was able to do this because of his riches.  Not by his richness in money, but by his richness in grace and love.  He bought us back with the riches of his amazing grace and relentless love.

The Lord is rich and he spent some of his richness to buy us back to life.  By his grace we are saved.  Our sin has been erased.  We will never be the same.  There is no going back.  He bought us back with the riches of his amazing grace and relentless love.  

This is the greatest news in the world.

We were once dead in sin, condemned to death because of our sin.  But the Lord intervened in the history of humanity to save us.  He bought us back with the riches of his amazing grace and relentless love.

We know what we have done and deserve to be brought to justice. Yet he took our place and offered up his Son to die in our place so that justice would be served and we would be spared.   He bought us back with the riches of his amazing grace and relentless love.  And forever we will be his.

He did this while we were sinners – full of wickedness and hatred towards him.  He is the light that came to the darkness of the world to reveal to us who he is.  Do you know him? He is holy and just, capable of saving us from our own wickedness.  And he did this while we were yet sinners.  He bought us back with the riches of his amazing grace and relentless love.

Whatever I do, wherever I go, whatever I learn, whatever I read, whatever I write – nothing compares to what he did.  Do you know him?   If not, you are missing the greatest treasure in the universe.  He bought us back with the riches of his amazing grace and relentless love.

This tune will forever play in my mind.

How God Became King: The Forgotten Story of the Gospels

Wright's claim that Jesus becoming king is the point of the gospels may not sound all that shocking to readers upon first glance. Wright is really saying is that the story goes all the way back to creation, when sin entered the world and gained a legal foothold on earth, in which Christ gained back on the cross, dethroning all other claims of rulers on earth. History is not unfolding based on our work. Wright shows us that Christ is not going to rule some day in the future, but he is already King, actively and involved, unfolding history according to his plan.

The God Who Is There: Finding Your Place in God's Story

This book tells the big story of Scripture, helping readers to know what they believe and why they believe it. It explains the Scriptures so that a person who has never even opened the Bible can understand it. Dr. Carson tells us about God, how good he is because he has done so much for us in spite of our disregard for him. If you invest the time to learn about him and get to know him, you will realize he has a treasure for us that is far greater than the cost seeking after him.

The Magic Man in the Sky: Effectively Defending the Christian Faith

Are Christians just kidding themselves? Are believers wasting their lives serving an imaginary friend in the clouds? And do Christians even have the courage to confront the hard questions about God's existence? If you are challenged with this question, then this is the book for you. The author directly addresses the doubts and fears of young Christians in a hostile culture. In a time of doubt and darkness, this book brings a confident and joyful message that God loves us, life has a purpose, and best of all, he can prove it.

Crazy Love: Overwhelmed by a Relentless God

This book is “written for those who want more Jesus. It is for those who are bored with what American Christianity offers. It is for those who don't want to plateau, who would rather die before their convictions do." It is a book that is meant to change the way Christians live their lives. The first theme is that we must painstakingly examine ourselves. To put it plainly, churchgoers who are `lukewarm' are not Christians. The second theme is deeply counter-cultural. Chan argues that the Christians, who believe in the works of Jesus, would not be pursuing material wealth but would be focused on telling others about Christ.
