2 Cor 5

This was the first song that came together as the result of a group effort.
Jeremy had been playing around with some chords on his guitar, and on one of our first jam sessions, he told us that the Lord just kept putting this verse on his heart.
As soon as he showed it to me I could see the song, and within about 45 minutes, we'd finished.
It's simple, but it carries a very powerful message.
In an era when everything is about the almighty Me, this passage from 2nd Corinthians 5 reminds us that the world doesn't revolve around us. The gospel of Christ was purchased at a great price, with unachievable humility.
You'll notice the song is broken up with specific interludes for testimony. That's because we designed it to speak to people through the music, the word of God, and the ministry of witness.

Here are the words:
He died for all that those who live
should no longer live for themselves,
but for him who died for them
and was raised again.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ,
he is a new creation;
the old has gone, the new has come.
He gave us the ministry
of reconciliation:
Through His one and only son.


God made him who had no sin
to be sin for us,
so that in Him
we might become God's righteousness.


He gave His all for Us.
So we could be His Righteousness.

He died for all that those who live
should no longer live for themselves.
