Do you know
the strength of your salvation?
Do you know the power at work
in and through you?
You were saved for so much more
than you probably even realize
Jesus’ death and resurrection
broke the power of death over you
And you will live gloriously forever
because of the gift of your salvation
Your salvation brings you strong victory over sin
and you are no longer chained to it!
You have power in Christ
to overcome sin
to stomp on it
and before Christ
you were defenseless against it
Your salvation protects you
from the enemy who wants to take you down
He has no authority over you
so resist him
Your salvation brings you life-giving freedom
from your prison cell
and you have the power
to walk in that freedom
Your salvation brings you hope
in an uncertain world
and uncertain times
and this is a strong and enduring hope
Your salvation brings you peace
making you able to stand solid in chaos
Your salvation is strength
and endures forever
There is no need
to walk in defeat

This includes you who were once far away from God. You were His enemies, separated from Him by your evil thoughts and actions. Yet now He has reconciled you to Himself through the death of Christ in His physical body. As a result, He has brought you into His own presence, and you are holy and blameless as you stand before Him without a single fault.
But you must continue to believe this truth and stand firmly in it. Don’t drift away from the assurance you received when you heard the Good News….
– Colossians 1:21-23 (NLT)
I’m absolutely convinced that nothing—nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable—absolutely nothing can get between us and God’s love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us.
– Romans 8:38, 39 (MSG)
“It’s urgent that you listen carefully to this: Anyone here who believes what I am saying right now and aligns himself with the Father, who has in fact put Me in charge, has at this very moment the real, lasting life and is no longer condemned to be an outsider. This person has taken a giant step from the world of the dead to the world of the living.
– John 5:24 (MSG)
With the arrival of Jesus, the Messiah, that fateful dilemma is resolved. Those who enter into Christ’s being-here-for-us no longer have to live under a continuous, low-lying black cloud. A new power is in operation. The Spirit of life in Christ, like a strong wind, has magnificently cleared the air, freeing you from a fated lifetime of brutal tyranny at the hands of sin and death.
– Romans 8:1, 2 (MSG)
For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
– 2 Corinthians 3:17 (NLT)
So if the Son sets you free, you are truly free.
– John 8:36 (NLT)
