Jesus, Friend

love-699480_1920

Jesus, the Lamb of God with us
Betrayed, denied by friends He loved
Bleeding, dying, buried, then raised
Death conquered by Power and Grace

Jesus, Friend of sinners and thieves
Of which I am the the worst of these
My sin, my debt, my nakedness
Gone, paid, now dressed in Righteousness

Behind the lines

“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you. You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. These things I command you, so that you will love one another. ~John 15:12-17

The Sin Problem

board-1521348_1920

The vast problem of sin,
Is not solved through the law,
If works are the answer,
It means death for us all.

But there’s grace upon grace,
Multiplied by great love,
The sum of redemption,
Is the product of God.

Indivisible Three,
Holy, Righteous and Just,
The Merciful Sovereign,
Equals death on a cross.

Cross-multiplication,
With Christ’s power to raise,
Has left our sin canceled,
And His math now embraced.

The formula of grace,
Substitutes the fallen,
With Christ as the Answer,
To the giant sin problem.
