Thursday August 7th, 2014: Thank You Jesus

Devotions

I love the new Hillsong album, “No Other Name.” While all the songs are great my favorite is “Thank You Jesus.” I want to break down part of this song just to understand how significant these lyrics are.

“You’ve given me life

You’ve opened me eyes

I love you, Lord

I love you, Lord

You’ve entered my heart

You’ve set me apart

I love you, Lord

I love you, Lord.”

“You’ve given me life”- You created me. Literally, “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.” (Psalm 139:13 NIV)

“You’ve opened my eyes”- You opened my eyes from darkness, “I will rescue you from your own people and from the Gentiles. I am sending you to them to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.” (Acts 26:17-18 NIV)

“I love you, Lord”- I sing praises to the highest King who demonstrated the highest love, “I love you, Lord, my strength.” (Psalm 18:1 NIV)

“You’ve entered my heart”- You’ve saved me. You have entered into my heart and I’m changed. “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—”(Ephesians 2:8 NIV)

“You’ve set me apart”- He has set me apart and made me His, “He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time.” (2 Timothy 1:9 NIV)

Thank you Jesus for your cross. You have given me life, opened my eyes, entered my heart, set me apart. If you have a chance, take a listen to “Thank You Jesus.” You won’t regret it. Hope everyone has a great Thursday!
