Confined to Spend –Ephesians 1:4-6

The bible alludes to the fact that God is outside of time and space. In Ephesians 1:4-6 it says that He chose us “before the foundation of the world.” 1 Peter 3:18 says that Christ’s death on the cross was “once for all time.” Genesis 1 and John 1 both use the phrase, “in the beginning” referring to the moment when time and space first came into existence. God was already there. I can’t understand it, but somehow He is “self-existent”, meaning He was never created. God, who is infinite, became something temporary. He clothed himself with a human body and lived a life as an ordinary man, but He lived it in the power of God. “For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily”, Colossians 2:9 says. In the first line of this song I state that God is “separate” from me. I don’t mean this to say that He’s not lovingly involved and concerned with me, but only that He is distinct. I am mortal, but He is immortal. I am present, but He is past, present, and future. I am created, but He is self-existent. This life that I am confined to “spend” is not permanent. It will come and go. He came to save it by taking me into eternity with Him.

LYRICS

I see the stars
And I’m reminded how separate You are
Time expands, like space
They are dividers of age and place

With all the angels You are outside of this world
And you’re memories and predictions all at once
Who can understand the difference of Your ways?
What I’m confined to spend, You came to save

I think of life
It’s like a cannonball flight, a crescent line
And cruel gravity, the sovereign prince of descent
He always wins

With all the angels You are outside of this world
And you’re memories and predictions all at once
Who can understand the difference of Your ways?
What I’m confined to spend, You came to save

I see the skies
And paint a rope with my eyes, and start to climb
But what could I achieve when even inches exceed my highest reach

With all the angels You are outside of this world
And you’re memories and predictions all at once
Who can understand the difference of Your ways?
What I’m confined to spend, yeah
Confined to spend

With all the angels You are outside of this world
And you’re memories and predictions all at once
Who can understand the difference of Your ways?
What I’m confined to spend, You came to save
