Christ, not religion
|To be set free from the bond of sin,
To have the joy and peace within,
To live a life full of meaning,
Believe into the Lord.
Man’s way to please God—religion;
God’s way—a living Person;
Christ is God’s way of salvation;
Believe and you’ll be saved.
|It pleases God to rescue us
Out of this present evil age,
And to reveal His Son in us—
Most peerless One of all!
|We have received Christ the Spirit
Through faith and not our merit;
Having begun by the Spirit,
We learn to live by faith.
We are the sons of the living God,
Enjoy the blessings of our Lord,
Grace to our spirit He doth afford,
From our self-effort freed.
|Oh what a joy! Christ now lives in us;
No longer I—how glorious!
He’s daily growing within us
Till He is formed in us.
We live and walk by the Spirit,
Enjoy the fruit of the Spirit;
To Him our whole lives we commit;
All else is vanity.

Galatians 1:4 Who gave Himself for our sins that He might rescue us out of the present evil age according to the will of our God and Father, 5 To whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.

I totally enjoy singing this hymn and believe every word in it.
The best part about being saved is that I don't have to go to church and be saved, or do works to obtain my salvation.
Eph. 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,
9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.

I like to listen to the hymn because it is about God.
