SONG OF THE WEEK: The Way (New Horizons) – Pat Barrett

If you’re like the rest of us, you’ve still got this song stuck in your head from Sunday! We declared this anthem together while we watched several of our brothers and sisters get baptized and go public with their declaration of having received new life in Christ!

I believe You are
The way, the truth, the life
I believe You are
The way, the truth, the life

It’s repetitive, but this words are taken right out of Scripture in John 14:6.Screen Shot 2018-11-29 at 9.25.15 AM“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me’.”

There’s something unique and powerful when we affirm the decision to follow Jesus and to live believing what He has said. There is no other way, no other truth, and no other life apart from Him. The words of the bridge should also be a deep encouragement, and a defiant statement to the schemes that the devil can use to pry us away from our Lord.

And it’s a new horizon and I’m set on You
And You meet me here today with mercies that are new
All my fears and doubts, they can all come too

Because they can’t stay long when I’m here with You

We’re told in Lamentations:
“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”

No matter what comes with the horizon, we can rest in confidence that God will be there as well, and that He will continue to show us His mercy! Because of that, we can live in defiance of our fears and doubts, knowing that our great and awesome God will conquer them! Praise be to God for the new life He has given to us!
