*02-TWO SIDES
(Mindy Johnson)

Verse

There are two sides with him and without
What side are you living out
There are two sides with him and without
Are you living for him, or are you living in doubt?

Verse

The cross stands in victory
Jesus is not there but it reminds us we are free
And he sits at the right hand of the Father
He will come again but he has given us another

Chorus

Holy Spirit come alive
Fill our hearts and open our eyes
Holy Spirit move in me
Give me courage give me strength
To speak what I believe
There are two sides

Verse

There are two sides with him and without
Search your heart and know what you’re about
There are two sides with him and without
If you know him better talk to him, don’t leave him out

Chorus

Behind the Song

There were two criminals crucified with Jesus.
One on his right and one on his left.

One of the criminals said, "Are you not the Christ?  Save yourself and us!"

But the other rebuke him, saying, "Do you not fear God, since you are under the same sentence or condemnation?  And we indeed justly, for we are receiving the due reward of our deeds; but this man has done nothing wrong."  And he said, "Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom."

And Jesus said to him, "Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise."

Truly, two sides here.

One who clearly didn't have a clue about his own sin.  He couldn't see it.

One who clearly got it.  
He knew it was because of what he did that he was up there.  He didn't point fingers.
He didn't say, "If you get to your kingdom, remember me"...he said when...when you get there.

May we approach Jesus in such a way that we understand that salvation only comes from him.  And may we be so thankful, every day...may we want to know more of this Savior who took on the cross...for us.

Let us choose the side of the cross that leads to His kingdom.
