Rescued from the Domain of Darkness

 

Rescued from the domain of darkness

Translated into the kingdom of brightness

Conveyed from damnation, destruction

Delivered into the realm of New Creation

 In the world but not of the world

Just a visitor, traveller in this world

Just an actor on this present passing stage

An ambassador, Heaven’s citizen in this age.

What a wonderful work he’s done

The price fully paid, victory won

 O how good great, glorious

How enduring, unspeakable, marvellous

Marred by sin, cleansed by the blood

Was groping in the dark, now given abundant hope

Thank God for Hs powerful word

Dynamic, precious word from the God of Hope

I have a new location a new address,

 A new post code: Colossians 1:13!

No need to be ashamed, so I confess,

Thank God for 2 Corinthians5:17!

Colossians 1:13-14

New Living Translation (NLT)

13 For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son, 14 who purchased our freedomand forgave our sins.2 Corinthians 5:17-20

New Living Translation (NLT)

17 This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!

18 And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ. And God has given us this task of reconciling people to him. 19 For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation. 20 So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!”
