Christ Alone

"So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in Him, rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and decptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ. For in Christ all the fullness of the Diety lives in bodily form, and you have been given fullness in Christ, who is the head over every power and authority." -Colossians 2:6-10

Christ Alone

We’ve gambled with our priceless jewel
In hope that we could keep our rags,
And in the middle of the war
We grab a pebble, drop the flag;

We play with fire and act surprised
When we are branded with our scars—
We’ve settled for our pool of mud
When God has offered us the stars!

We’re fools!—Why can’t we see the truth?
Paul told us once—we should have known—
The petty things we chase are trash,
Our only hope is Christ alone!
