The yes of every promise

The law was not removed

Another In The Fire

Verse 1

There’s a grace when the heart is under fire

Another way when the walls are closing in

And when I look at the space between

Where I used to be and this reckoning

I know I will never be alone


Chorus

There was another in the fire

Standing next to me

There was another in the waters

Holding back the seas

And should I ever need reminding

Of how I’ve been set free

There is a cross that bears the burden

Where another died for me

There is another in the fire


Verse 2

All my debt left for dead beneath the waters

I’m no longer a slave to my sin anymore

And should I fall in the space between

What remains of me and this reckoning

Either way I won’t bow

To the things of this world

And I know I will never be alone


Chorus 2

There is another in the fire

Standing next to me

There is another in the waters

Holding back the seas

And should I ever need reminding

What power set me free

There is a grave that holds no body

And now that power lives in me


Bridge

I can see the light in the darkness

As the darkness bows to Him

I can hear the roar in the heavens

As the space between wears thin

Bridge (cont)

I can feel the ground shake beneath us

As the prison walls cave in

Nothing stands between us

Nothing stands between us


Verse 3

There is no other name

But the Name that is Jesus

He who was and still is

And will be through it all

So come what may in the space between

All the things unseen and this reckoning

I know I will never be alone


Chorus 3

There’ll be another in the fire

Standing next to me

There’ll be another in the waters

Holding back the seas

And should I ever need reminding

How good You’ve been to me

I’ll count the joy come every battle

‘Cause I know that’s where You’ll be


Bridge

I can see the light in the darkness

As the darkness bows to Him

I can hear the roar in the heavens

As the space between wears thin


Chorus 3

There’ll be another in the fire

Standing next to me

There’ll be another in the waters

Holding back the seas

And should I ever need reminding

How good You’ve been to me

I’ll count the joy come every battle

‘Cause I know that’s where You’ll be

Death Was Arrested

VERSE 1

Alone in my sorrow, and dead in my sin

Lost without hope, with no place to begin

Your love made a way to let mercy come in

When death was arrested, and my life began


VERSE 2

Ash was redeemed, only beauty remains

My orphan heart was given a name

My mourning grew quiet, my feet rose to dance

When death was arrested, and my life began


CHORUS 1

Oh your grace so free, washes over me

You have made me new, now life begins with You


VERSE 3

Released from my chains, I'm a prisoner no more

My shame was a ransom, He faithfully bore

He canceled my debt, and He called me his friend

When death was arrested, and my life began


CHORUS 2

Oh your grace so free, washes over me

You have made me new, now life begins with You

It's your endless love, pouring down on us

You have made us new, now life begins with you


VERSE 4

Our Savior displayed on a criminal's cross

Darkness rejoiced, as though heaven had lost

But then Jesus arose, with our freedom in hand

That's when death was arrested, and my life began

That's when death was arrested, and my life began


CHORUS 2

Oh your grace so free, washes over me

You have made me new, now life begins with You

It's your endless love, pouring down on us

You have made us new, now life begins with you


BRIDGE

Oh, we free, free, forever we're free

Come join the song of all the redeemed

Yes, we're free, free, forever amen

When death was arrested and my life began


CHORUS 2

Oh your grace so free, washes over me

You have made me new, now life begins with You

It's your endless love, pouring down on us

You have made us new, now life begins with you


TAG

When death was arrested, and my life began

Yes, when death was arrested, and my life began

Message Scriptures

Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:11



Encourage One Another



1 Now, brothers and sisters, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, 2 for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. 3 While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. 4 But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief. 5 You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness. 6 So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep but let us be awake and sober. 7 For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, get drunk at night. 8 But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet. 9 For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. 10 He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him. 11 Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:1-11




12 See to it, brothers and sisters, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God. 13 But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today,” so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness. Hebrews 3:12-13




Encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing




COMMUNION


Battle Belongs

Verse 1

When all I see is the battle

You see my victory

When all I see is a mountain

You see a mountain moved

And as I walk through the shadow

Your love surrounds me

There's nothing to fear now

For I am safe with You


Chorus

So when I fight I'll fight on my knees

With my hands lifted high

O God the battle belongs to You

And every fear I lay at Your feet

I'll sing through the night

O God the battle belongs to You


Verse 2

And if You are for me

Who can be against me

For Jesus there's nothing

Impossible for You

When all I see are the ashes

You see the beauty

When all I see is a cross

God You see the empty tomb


Chorus

So when I fight I'll fight on my knees

With my hands lifted high

O God the battle belongs to You

And every fear I lay at Your feet

I'll sing through the night

O God the battle belongs to You


Bridge

(An) Almighty Fortress You go before us

Nothing can stand against

The power of our God

You shine in the shadows

You win every battle

Nothing can stand against

The power of our God


Chorus

So when I fight I'll fight on my knees

With my hands lifted high

O God the battle belongs to You

And every fear I lay at Your feet

I'll sing through the night

O God the battle belongs to You
