Just Announced: Philippians Sermon Series

Summary: God has our sins covered, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Sermon title,,, I've got you covered

One of my favorite Christian songs, is done by a group, Phillips, Craig, and Dean. Here are the lyrics....

A scene so familiar at the old five and dime

The little boy waited his turn in line

And with eyes so intent he proudly displayed

The candy he'd buy with the money he'd saved

The girl at the counter wasn't sure what to do

Cause the money was less than the price that was due

Then a stranger spoke up from his place in line

Said whatever he's short just take it and add it to mine


I've got you covered, I'll pay the difference

You don't have to worry at all

Whatever the cost is I'll go the distance

If you fail, I will catch you

You know I wont let you feel like you're there all alone

I've got you covered Sometimes when I look back it's hard to explain

Just how far I've come yet how little has changed

I still long to hold what seems so out of reach

Only to find out it's not what it seems

I come to the Father alone and afraid

In need of forgiveness yet it's so far away

I cry out for mercy a child so in need

With a voice of compassion the Father calls out to me

I know what you're facing, I see where you're standing

I'm holding all the answers you need

Cause no situation will ever take you out of My reach

I’ve got you covered. No doubt we have all heard that phrase and perhaps have used it on occasion. But what exactly does it mean.

You step up to the counter to pay for your soda and candy bar and you reach into your pocket to pull out some money and you realize that you don’t have any with you or you used it somewhere else. Your face goes white, then red as you begin to tell the cashier, “I forgot my money.” But your friend that’s in line with you leans up and says, “It’s okay, I’ve got you covered.” When you had no possible way of paying that debt someone else stepped in and paid it for you.

In the old western movies, during a gunfight, one cowboy would tell the other one to make a break , and run toward cover. He would tell him, It is okay, I've got you covered.

Someone says, “Hey, let’s go out and get something to eat.” You really want to because you’re hungry but you have no money or your money should be used elsewhere and you say, “No I don’t think I can today.” That same someone who invited you says, “I’ve got you covered.” And suddenly you change your mind and decide yes I will go out to eat. You didn’t have the money to pay for that meal but someone else stepped in and paid the bill for you.

I love the poem, heavens grocery store..



As I got a little closer

the door came open wide

And when I came to myself

I was standing inside.

I saw a host of ANGELS.

They were standing everywhere.

One handed me a basket and said,

"My Child shop with care".

Everything a Christian needed

was in that grocery store.

And all you couldn't carry,

you could come back the next day for more.

First, I got some PATIENCE:

LOVE was in the same row.

Further down was UNDERSTANDING:

You need that everywhere you go.

I got a box or two of WISDOM,

a bag or two of FAITH.

I just couldn't miss the HOLY GHOST,

For it was all over the place.

I stopped to get some STRENGTH and COURAGE

To help me run this race.

By then my basket was getting full,

But I remembered I needed some GRACE.

I didn't forget SALVATION,

For SALVATION was free,

So I tried to get enough of that

To save both You and Me.

Then I started up to the counter

To pay my grocery bill,

For I thought I had everything

To do the MASTER'S Will.

As I went up the aisle, I saw PRAYER:

And I just had to put that in,

For I knew when I stepped outside,

I would run into Sin.

PEACE AND JOY were plenty

They were last on the shelf.

SONG and PRAISE were hanging near,

So I just helped myself.

Then I said to the angel,

"Now, how much do I owe?"

He smiled and said,

"Just take them everywhere you go.”

Again, I smiled and said,

"How much do I really owe?"

He smiled again and said,



It means in this sense that someone else paid the debt that was yours. Someone else took your place. I’ve got you covered.
