"Lord, I Need You"

On Sunday we sang a great new song called "Lord I Need You."   The chorus is taken from an old hymn. I love the new verses that Matt Maher and company came up with. Today, I want to talk just about the second verse.

It says,"Where sin runs deep Your grace is more."

A wonderful quote from Romans 5:20 relates to this:

"The Law came in so that the transgression would increase; but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more,"

Grace, the unmerited favor of God.

Then we sing,"Where grace is found is where You are"

In God's grace, we experience His loving acceptance so that we can know Him and enjoy His presence.

Finally we sing, "And where You are, Lord, I am free, Holiness is Christ in me"

There is great freedom in knowing that our sins are forgiven, and the merits of Christ reside in our hearts.

Romans 3:22
Even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all those who believe;

Wow. We admit our need for God and He gives us His grace, His righteousness, and his freedom.

Lord, I Need You,

Joe

Lord, I come, I confess
Bowing here I find my rest
Without You I fall apart
You're the One that guides my heart

Lord, I need You, oh, I need You
Every hour I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

Where sin runs deep Your grace is more
Where grace is found is where You are
And where You are, Lord, I am free
Holiness is Christ in me

Lord, I need You, oh, I need You
Every hour I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

Teach my song to rise to You
When temptation comes my way
And when I cannot stand I'll fall on You
Jesus, You're my hope and stay

Lord, I need You, oh, I need You
Every hour I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

You're my one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You
