Sunday Selah

Then Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty. But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe. All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. For my Father's will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day."
John 6:35-40


Paradox
Holy water that ignites a fire
Quenches thirst but lights heart's desire
Lose my life to find my way
To live is Christ, to die is gain
Childlike at heart, mature in mind
Bread of life, water to wine
What is this eternal paradox?
The saved are those who see they're lost
A ransom for sin, only flesh to give
And all because He was dying to live.
A King without a country, thorns for a crown
The Giver of Life, He laid His life down
Should sin increase that grace may abound?
Spirit quest of lost and found
A cross for a throne, He was raised up high
Descend to the depths, His love to testify
What is this eternal paradox?
The saved are those who see they're lost
A ransom for sin, only flesh to give
And all because He was dying to live.
The Prince of Peace that brings a sword
When it hurts to give, then give some more
Death in the body, Spirit alive
Blameless bears sin, healing by stripes
A ruler who measured the poor as rich
Let little children come with no hindrance
What is this eternal paradox?
The saved are those who see they're lost
A ransom for sin, only flesh to give
And all because He was dying to live.
A living sacrifice, a virgin birth
Fishers of men, what's a soul worth?
Orphaned at birth, adoption to belong
Flesh of failure, in weakness I'm made strong
My scarlet sins are made snow white
Washed in the blood of the Kidron's tide
What is this eternal paradox?
The saved are those who see they're lost
A ransom for sin, only flesh to give
And all because He was dying to live.
