“Jesus Paid it Some” – guard your heart from singing this song during the week by worshiping the Lord this Sunday!

I can list 100 reasons from scripture why I need to regularly worship the Risen Jesus each Sunday – but this one reason ranks nearly the top reason: during the week my heart is prone to drift away from the gospel’s good news that Jesus paid it all – and I mean all of it! This is what I mean and what the author meant to say:

  1. When Jesus died on the cross for my sins, he actually, not potentially paid my debt (John 10:16 – “will be one flock”).
  2. When Jesus died on the cross for my sins, all my sins were future – and not one of my yet future sins was left out (1 Peter 2:24).
  3. When Jesus died on the cross for my sins, his death secured and guaranteed my future faith (John 10:16 – “will hear my voice”; John 10:25-30).
  4. When Jesus died on the cross for my sins, he forever secured his Father’s love for me, so much so, that not one ounce of wrath was left on the scale against me (Rom. 3:21-26).
  5. When Jesus died on the cross, he died specifically for my sins, otherwise, I would not say that. Jesus does not do random. He does not shoot from the hip. He did not make a good attempt. He came to save His people from their sins (Matthew 1:21) and will not fail to justify every single one of them (Isa. 53:11-12).

During the week, as we grapple with the world, the flesh, and the devil, our hearts can begin to feel guilty with indwelling sin, so much so, that the song shifts from, “Jesus Paid it All” to “Jesus Paid it Some.” Think about it, if Jesus did not actually and effectively pay it all for all that the Father gave to him (John 6:37, 44; 17:6, 9), then the only alternative is “some.” Do you really want to sing this song on Sunday morning?

Jesus Paid It Some

I hear the Savior say,
You’re not doing enough;
Work your fingers to the bone,
I will save those who are tough.

 

Jesus paid it some
I will do the rest
Sin had left a crimson stain
Now I will give my best

 

For now indeed I’ll try
To earn your love and grace
I’ll add the works I’ve done
To complete the price you paid.

 

Jesus paid it some
I will do the rest
Sin had left a crimson stain
Now I will give my best

 

And when before the throne
I’ll give my deeds to you,
I’ll hope I’ve done enough
To make you let me through.

 

Chorus (repeat 7 times just to be sure)
