A worship song by Hillsong. Reminds me of Philippians 3:7-11, where Paul writes, "But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God and is by faith. I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead."
What Christ did when he died on the cross for us, was to make us righteous before God, a righteousness that comes through faith, and not by the law. And knowing Christ - what his death means to us, what his resurrection implies, and what a relationship with Him entails - makes everything else pale into comparison. Paul calls it the "surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord". Do we really understand the gravity but yet freedom that the cross brings us? Thank you Jesus. Ever lead me onwards toward the cross.
