Holy Week: The River

23 For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. 24 Yet God, with undeserved kindness, declares that we are righteous. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins. 25 For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life, shedding his blood. This sacrifice shows that God was being fair when he held back and did not punish those who sinned in times past, 26 for he was looking ahead and including them in what he would do in this present time. God did this to demonstrate his righteousness, for he himself is fair and just, and he declares sinners to be right in his sight when they believe in Jesus. Romans 3:23-26 New Living Translation

The River by Meredith Andrews

Everyone is broken and in need of a savior
So He came and was broken for the marker,
For the shamed
Still our eyes are blinded by the culture,
By the lies
We can’t see that were filthy, we’re fallen
And so dry

But He invites us
Can you hear Him say
He invites us
Hear Him call your name

Welcome to the river
Come drink come away come find your very life
Welcome to the river of God
Where your brokeness is washed away

Everywhere is the sorrow
And the pain of empty living
You can see it, look in their eyes
All the hopelessness of the world
But look closer He is right there
In the midst of every fear

Living water is the offer
Restoration is the call
And He invites us
Can you hear Him say
He invites us
Hear Him call your name

Welcome to the river
Come drink come away come find your very life
Welcome to the river of god
Where your brokeness is washed away

Welcome to the river
Come drink come away come find your very life
Welcome to the river of God
Where your brokeness is washed away

Find your healing
Find your freedom
In the river of God

Find your healing
Find your freedom
In the river of God

Your healing here
Your freedom here
In the river of God

Your healing here
Your freedom here
In the river of God

Welcome to the river
Come drink come away come find your very life
Welcome to the river of God
Where your brokeness is washed away

..washed away

Everyone is broken and in need of a savior
