He Paid a Great Price for Us
He paid a great price for us
When He died on the cross
Led captivity captive
Set us free that we might live.
We were crucified with Him
And so we all died with Him
Together we rose with Him
And now we’re sited with Him.
Jesus disarmed and disrobed them
There He triumphed over them
Far above the hordes of hell
Because at the cross they fell.
From Satan’s snare we broke free
The light shone for us to see
The chains of sin were broken
And the prison doors opened.
He put an end to sin’s control
When He liberated our soul
It marked a New Beginning
As we became God’s offspring.
Reflect on what Christ has done
Salvation is a deal done.
He purchased us with great price
So from darkness we can rise.
Romans 8: Free from Indwelling Sin
1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.
2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.
20 I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. Gal2:20
28 Therefore take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood.
18 knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers,
19 but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. 1Pet1:18-19
17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
