Love Offering, From He Who Owed Us Nothing

 





I know I've posted these songs before, but with Easter coming
the messages in the lyrics ring nearer and dearer than ever
as I reflect on God's glorious gift of grace 
for all mankind forever, to sorry sinners that stand condemned
but for the redemption that poured from Calvary's cross 
once for all in forgiveness of sins to all who believe!
(all that wonder in one run-on sentence!!:-)

Is there any message 
dearer 
than the one from 
Calvary? 
Jesus took the place of 
sinners; 
gave His life for you
 and me
With the pardon His blood 
purchased, 
we who stand condemned 
may call
On He who loves and 
forgives us 
and gave His life once, 
for all...
Granting for our guilt
salvation; 
absolution from sin's 
curse
With His death he 
overpowered 
Death's dominion 
over us  
Sealed the gates of hell with 
Heaven
Tore the veil twixt God
and man
Took our justified
chastisement 
to fulfill salvation's
plan
He who owed us nothing
offered
To suffer in our
place
Love looked far beyond the 
moment 
And sealed Destiny with
grace
Free, but for one 
stipulation
Only those who ask
receive
Only those receive
salvation
who first repent and
believe

Janet Martin

Sometimes one simply has to marvel again and again
at how the love of God grants to sinful, sordid, shameful, selfish
human race-
Grace

(Inspired in part by today's message)
Today's message is part one of two entitled

If you are filled with what's and whys as to what in the world life is all about
feel free to listen to the previous messages in the link to the Romans series we are in
and stay tuned as we continue through to the end of the book!
