Fessing Up!

Authentic

2 Corinthians 5:20-21
New Living Translation (NLT)

20 So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!” 21 For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.


Authenticated

To be completely authentic
With unquestioning truth
Being undoubtedly accurate
And honest to boot

You have to be cereal
You have to be square
You have to give room
And you have to share

So if you want to be real
Wanna be straight-up
You don’t have to be ugly
But you have to fess-up

Don’t try to be perfect
It won’t stand up in court
We’re all getting F’s
On our final reports

But we all get a bonus
A question profound
Answer correctly
And our lives turn around

So if you want to be real
Wanna be straight-up
You don’t have to be ugly
But you have to fess-up

So don’t put it off
You might miss your one chance
You don’t have to be a giant
But you just have to take a stance

Then we’ll be just as authentic
As him who never knew sin
Who gave up his life
So the kingdom could come in

So if you want to be real
Wanna be straight-up
You don’t have to be ugly
But you have to fess-up

Father,

You have given us grace and mercy. They search us out and bring us back from death through the mighty works of Jesus. May all who hear the Word accept its gift and be renewed.
