Holy Week – Tuesday

As I prepared for Holy Week this year the theme of Grace resounded. It is much easier to accept that somehow by doing the right things I can somehow make up for my short comings. The truth is that I just can’t, no human can. That it was God’s enormous love for us that he created a plan for my redemption.

For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him. John 3:16-17 (NLT)

And Can It Be That I Should Gain?
By Charles Wesley & Thomas Campbell
Preformed by the Gaithers and Friends

And can it be that I should gain
an interest in the Savior’s blood?
Died he for me, who caused his pain
for me, who caused his bitter death?
Amazing love! How can it be
that you, my Lord, should die for me?

Refrain:
Amazing love! How can it be
that you, my Lord, should die for me?!

No condemnation now I dread,
for Christ, and all in him, is mine!
Alive in him, my living Head,
and clothed in righteousness divine,
bold I approach the eternal throne
and claim the crown, through Christ, my own.

Refrain
