Uncreated (recreated)

sunrise-1756274_1920We rise up each morning,
But You never sleep,
We crave food and water,
But You have no needs.
You are God, Uncreated.

We live in the present,
You planned it back when?
And we’re constrained by time,
You’re outside of it.
You are God, Uncreated.

We are wholly recreated,
By the Holy Uncreated,
You are God,
You are God.

And we’re the work of Your hands,
A new creation that lives,
To give You glory,
We give You glory,

We’re forgiven in Christ,
Raised new with His life,
No longer under sin,
We are freed from it.
We are Yours, Uncreated

Behind the lines

The Uncreated Creator, in His grace, came to live in creation so that he might die and take the wrath we deserve in order to recreate spiritually dead sinners for His glory.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come (2 Corinthians 5:17 ESV).

Those recreated are no longer slaves to sin!

But thanks be to God, that you who were once slaves of sin have become obedient from the heart to the standard of teaching to which you were committed, and, having been set free from sin, have become slaves of righteousness. I am speaking in human terms, because of your natural limitations. For just as you once presented your members as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness leading to sanctification.

For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. But what fruit were you getting at that time from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death. But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the fruit you get leads to sanctification and its end, eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 6:17-23 ESV).

Have you been recreated? Are you a new creation, born again, and a slave to righteousness? Have you repented of your sins and placed your trust in Christ?

Christ alone can set us free from sin.


Open Bible rippedO Lord, I am feeble,
You have all power;
My years are like a breath.
But blood covers my sin,
With grace abounding;
Your Song now lives in me.

My hope is in You,
My faith is in You.

Great are You, Lord,
The Lamb and the Sword,
Great are You, Lord,
For salvation.

O Lord, like deer panting,
For Living Water,
My soul now thirsts for You.
With joy I desire You,
Your Word lifts my heart;
Your mercy marvels me.

O Lord, I sing praises,
With voice and music,
Salvation comes from You.
Yes, You are Salvation,
The Word so wondrous,
The Lamb who ransomed me.

Yours is the power,
Yours is the Kingdom,
Yours is salvation.

Behind the lines

How great is the salvation of the Lord? He takes feeble sinners and by his grace presents them righteous through the shedding of His own blood. Salvation is His to give and whom He calls will be changed by Him, will seek Him, and will rejoice in Him.

But may all who seek you
rejoice and be glad in you;
may those who love your salvation
say continually, “Great is the LORD!”
(Psalm 40:16 ESV)

He is our joy, He is our hope, He is our Salvation. May we say continually, “Great is the LORD!”


Water, drops of water,
Bringing life as they pour,
Start their journey toward the sea,
Then God lifts them once more.

Water, precious water,
Clean and pure like new snow,
Trickles from the Highest Mountain,
To the lowest of low.

Water, Calling Water,
Rushing rivers resound,
Singing out to weary travelers,
Whom Your mercy surrounds.

Power, Cleansing Power,
Surging currents of grace,
Will grind away the roughest rocks,
Leaving smooth ones in their place.

River, Mighty River,
Greatest river of all,
Started from Calvary’s Mountain,
Where Jesus’ blood did fall.

Behind the lines

Written in Short Meter (, this hymn takes us on a journey from drops of water to rushing rivers and on to the sea. It applies to how God’s grace flows to the weak and humble, the Holy Spirit’s effectual call and regenerative power, God’s mercy, baptism, Christ’s cleansing blood, and the resurrection when He will raise us to meet Him in the clouds.

We often take water for granted until we don’t have any. It is one of the most amazing acts of creation and brings us a visual of God’s grace and power. Water can bring refreshment, peace, and joy. Water can also bring to mind storms and fear. We often use it for recreation and relaxation.

Think of past vacations where water played a vital part of your trip.  Think of cold mountain streams, beautiful waterfalls, winding rivers, deep lakes and clear ocean waves touching sandy beaches.

May we have a deeper appreciation of  water and praise God for placing it abundantly on the earth.

One of my favorite vacations was to Niagara Falls in June of 2007. Do you have a favorite water destination?
