Christ Did The Work

God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of my Lord, Jesus Christ,
for all of my works avail nothing; but a new creature, in him, I’m alive!

Christ shed his blood so willingly;
went to the cold dark tomb for me,
Then he rose again, with power on high.
It’s Christ now who lives in my heart, not I.
~
God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of my Lord, Jesus Christ,
for all of my works avail nothing; but a new creature, in him, I’m alive!
~
Christ did the work on Calvary;
secured my place eternally.
By the power of God my faith shall stand,
and not in the wisdom or might of man.
~
God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of my Lord, Jesus Christ,
for all of my works avail nothing; but a new creature, in him, I’m alive!
~
I will stand fast in liberty;
no more the yoke entangles me.
I have been set free to serve in love,
 until I am called to my home above.
~
God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of my Lord, Jesus Christ,
for all of my works avail nothing; but a new creature, in him, I’m alive!
~
I will give thanks each day I live,
 for blessings that my Saviour gives.
I rejoice in Christ and sing his praise;
 all glory and honour are due his name.
~
God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of my Lord, Jesus Christ,
for all of my works avail nothing; but a new creature, in him, I’m alive!
~
Only in Christ!

1 Corinthians 2:5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God

Galatians 6:14, 15 But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me and I unto the world.
For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.

Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not tangled again with the yoke of bondage.

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.


 I am so thankful that Jesus did all that was necessary to purchase my salvation at Calvary. Aside from accepting this free gift there is nothing I can do to earn my way into heaven, and nothing I must do to keep myself saved. There is no work of the flesh that will change my destination, or get me inside the doors of the New Jerusalem. When Jesus said, “It is finished,” he had paid it all. There is nothing I can add to the work of Christ. To him all glory and honour are due.

 I am just as thankful that there is no sin in my past, my present or my future that Jesus blood cannot fully cover. It’s all under the blood. When Jesus saved me I became a new creature in him. Praise the Lord!

 How sad it is that there are saved people who think that they can do something to add to the work of Christ, or that there is some sin in their past that can keep them from fully serving the Lord today. Jesus came to free us from ALL of our sins, and though we still have to live in this sinful flesh, in Jesus we are already seated in heavenly places. Ephesians 2:6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.

  1. The message of this song is worth meditating on. Not only did Jesus pay the full price for my salvation, He did everything that was needed to give us (and me) victory in Him!
