Post a Comment. Monday, January 4, Ephesians - "Grace Wins". I woke up this morning with a song Matthew West sings called "Grace Wins" and was im mediately blessed for the reminder of these words No more lying down in death's defeat Now I'm rising up in victory Singing hallelujah Grace wins every time Isn't it awesome to know that we get new beginnings every time we go before the Lord and repent? I was telling the teens yesterday the only way to make the statement 'It's a new year I have a clean slate' is to repent.

GRACE ALWAYS WINS

October 20, I confess that the first time I heard the song, I thought I was going to like it. At the end of the song, I was a little unsure of what the song was pitting against Grace, so I had to carefully listen a second time with the lyrics in front of me.

The song seems to suffer from category errors and shallow theology. That there is forgiveness for all who call upon the Name of the Lord in repentance. However, there are so many problems in what is presented in the lyrics that we simply cannot recommend this song.

For the prodigal son Grace wins For the woman at the well Grace wins For the blind man and the beggar Grace wins For always and forever Grace wins For the lost out on the streets Grace wins For the worst part of you and me Grace wins For the thief on the cross Grace wins For a world that is lost.

I was going to go through the song as usual, but I fear losing sight of the forest through the trees. We are living proof of the victory of Grace over guilt? Today, lets just focus on the problem of the forest without getting tangled up in the trees. There are several key terms missing from this lyric: Law, Gospel, sin, confession, repentance, forgiveness, and the Cross. Throughout the song, guilt is pitted against grace.

This is a glaring category error. Exactly what is being compared? My guilt versus my grace? The song asserts that there is some war being waged between guilt and grace.

No matter how I try to expand these definitions, I cannot get around the category error. There is but one remedy for sin, that is the Gospel of Grace, that God would send His Son to bear the full punishment for sin in our place on the Cross. The Holy Spirit of God works on the hearts of men, drawing them to Christ. The victory has already been won as far as Grace and Sin are concerned, for Jesus Christ is reigning and ruling in Heaven and we wait for Him to return in the Last Day.

But the Grace of God has no contender… nothing can overcome the Grace of God. As Paul wrote in his introduction to the letter to the Romans. It is excluded. By what kind of law? By a law of works? No, but by the law of faith. Is he not the God of Gentiles also? When we rightly understand sin, guilt, and the Gospel of Jesus Christ, then we can rest assured that in Christ Jesus we are made righteous by Faith. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him.

The Law points out sin in our flesh and crushes us into humble submission unto repentance so that the Gospel can bring us out of sin and death and into the Kingdom of Heaven.

It was simply errant. I was surprised by your thoughts about this song being shallow theology. My thoughts when hearing and reading the words of this song are the compete opposite.

I find this song so deep. God revels all the way back with Moses that we all are his creation, so when were make negative statements about any of his creation we are not recognizing the beauty he instilled in that very creation. Yes, Gods creation can make bad choices that harms his creation, but the creation itself ought never be regarded as bad..

When re-reading these lyrics and thinking of the nature of god is being represented by the words I am, maybe it may bother you less. Maybe not. I highly value the depth of these words. Either way, I would hope God values your passionate love for him, that would bring you to look deeply into what you allow your spirit to take into your being. Much grace and peace to you, his faithful servant. In him too, kat. As I pointed out in this post, I think the overall attempt is at proclaiming the power of the Grace of God.

That is a good thing in general, but the song falls short of defining the Grace of God Biblically. As for creation, it is indeed now cursed as a direct result of the fall in Genesis 3. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God.

And that freedom will come when Christ returns to judge the living and the dead, when we will rule and reign with Christ in the New Heavens and the New Earth. Jesus paid it all. So in fact Grace does win every time. The Gospel is that Christ paid the price of our sin so that through Him we might be forgiven of our sin and adopted as sons of the Most High. The Grace of God does win, because God wins. Sola Gratia is one of the 5 Solas of the Reformation. Those folks probably disagree with almost every DiM we post.

I am grateful for the opportunity to discuss the Grace of God this morning. Thank you for sharing your comment. Excellent, biblical review of this song. The first few lines of the song I related to, but as the lyrics went on, they left me feeling concerned about the message being put forth. Your treatment of the lyrics was generous and more gracious than I could have done. Thank you for grounding your thoughts in gospel truth and sharing. I look forward to reading more of your song posts! I appreciate wanting to be theologically sound but really?

A song is just an expression of personal thought or emotion. The bottom line is that grace wins. That is true for you and for me, bottom line — these songs are written for Christians for those of us who are supposed to know the work of Christ on the cross. When the song discusses the condemnation — it is what is felt — most christians know what it means to feel shame and condemnation — and that is what this song is about.

Not saying that we are condemned but that feeling can dog anyone. Knit picking is a joyless existence. There may not be a real war between guilt and grace — the writer is expressing his emotions. Yes, really. Anthemic, even. While I appreciate your theology, thoroughness, and clarity in presenting your thoughts, and do not disagree with your theological explanations, I must say that the beauty of these lyrics is that they avoid the proverbial forest and trees to which you referred.

The overall message comes across beautifully. The Holy Spirit can take over from there, leading the person to a deeper understanding as they journey in their faith.

We agree that there are many who have not known the name of Jesus, whose ears might come upon this song with a sense of spiritual encouragement. Would the Holy Spirit prick their hearts and draw them closer to the aroma of Christ? If the motivation of this song is to proclaim the Good News, it does so without naming the source of our Good news: Jesus himself. There is no proclamation of Christ, no message of our redemption from sin as it has been pinned to the cross by Yeshua, our Lord and savior.

It is not grace that has overcome sin; Christ himself overcame our sin. It is the perfect, selfless act of a God who loves us even while we were sinners. Without crediting God or His son, we boast from an empty grace instead of an empty grave Galations To describe the power of grace without our Lord and savior is like a man sharing his excitement about having won the lottery.

He visits a nearby ghetto, sings out loudly among the poor how wonderful his life has become. I have recently heard a critique of this song which seems to indicate it could be assumed the songwriter is proclaiming universalism, that all will be saved in the end, even the unrepentant and unbelieving.

Your thoughts? However, as we noted in this song review, the absence of a clear confession of sin and the call to repentance leaves very little room in this song to guard against universalism or from universalists taking this song as their anthem. This is why being doctrinally vague is such a problem.

Grace Wins Songtext

October 20, I confess that the first time I heard the song, I thought I was going to like it. At the end of the song, I was a little unsure of what the song was pitting against Grace, so I had to carefully listen a second time with the lyrics in front of me. The song seems to suffer from category errors and shallow theology.

Verse 1: In my weakest moment I see you Shaking your head in disgrace I can read the disapointment Written all over your face Here comes those whispers in my ear Saying who do you think you are Looks like you're on your own from here Cause grace could never reach that far. Pre-Chorus: But, in the shadow of that shame Beat down by all the blame I hear you call my name sayin it's not over And my heart starts to beat So loud now, drowning out the doubt I'm down but I'm not out. Chorus: There's a war between guilt and grace And they're fighting for a sacred space But I'm living proof Grace wins every time No more lying down in death's defeat Now I'm rising up in victory Singing hallelujah Grace wins every time.

For the prodigal son, grace wins For the woman at the well, grace wins For the blind man and the beggar, grace wins For always and forever, grace wins For the lost out on the street, grace wins For the worst part of you and me, grace wins For the thief on the cross, grace wins For a world that it lost. I have written and spoken many times about how the enemy uses guilt to bring us down and attempts to distract us from the victory we have already been given. That victory is the result of grace given freely and willingly by our Heavenly Father. He was accused of crimes He did not commit yet He was found guilty and sentenced to death on the cross.

GRACE ALWAYS WINS

In my weakest moment I see you Shaking your head in disgrace I can read the disapointment Written all over your face Here comes those whispers in my ear Saying who do you think you are Looks like you're on your own from here 'Cause grace could never reach that far. But, in the shadow of that shame Beat down by all the blame I hear you call my name sayin it's not over And my heart starts to beat So loud now, drowning out the doubt I'm down but I'm not out There's a war between guilt and grace And they're fighting for a sacred space But I'm living proof Grace wins every time. No more lying down in death's defeat Now I'm rising up in victory Singing hallelujah Grace wins every time Words can't describe the way it feels When mercy floods a thirsty soul The broken inside begins to heal And grace returns what guilt stole. And, in the shadow of that shame Beat down by all the blame I hear you call my name sayin it's not over And my heart starts to beat So loud now, drowning out the doubt I'm down but I'm not out There's a war between guilt and grace And they're fighting for a sacred space But I'm living proof Grace wins every time. No more lying down in death's defeat Now I'm rising up in victory Singing hallelujah Grace wins every time. For the prodigal son, grace wins For the woman at the well, grace wins For the blind man and the beggar, grace wins For always and forever, grace wins For the lost out on the street, grace wins For the worst part of you and me, grace wins For the thief on the cross, grace wins For a world that it lost. There's a war between guilt and grace And they're fighting for a sacred space But I'm living proof Grace wins every time No more lying down in death's defeat Now I'm rising up in victory Singing hallelujah Grace wins every time Every time Yeah, I'm living proof grace wins every time.

Grace Wins Lyrics by Matthew West

In my weakest moment i see you Shaking your head in disgrace I can read the disapointment Written all over your face. Here come those wispers in my ear Saying who do you think you are Looks like you are on your own from here Because grace can never reach that far. But in the shadow of the shame Beat down by all the blame I hear you call my name Saying its not over But my heart starts to beat so loud Now drowning out the dout I'm down but i'm not out.
