Greater love hath no man than this,
that a man lay down his life for his friends.
I have no great riches,
and my life is kind of tough;
But I have a friend in Jesus,
and that makes me quite rich enough.
My Redeemer came down to earth from Glory through a virgin birth. He was tempted, but lived without sin. He laid down his own life by crucifixion and trusted the promise of God the Father not to leave his soul in hell.
Jesus conquered death and the grave. He ascended back to the father to be my Savior, Mediator, and Intercessor. He has me in His hand and will never leave me nor forsake me.
He invites all sinners to be saved and I personally elected to accept His invitation. My body is to be a living sacrifice for Him, which is my reasonable service.
I am just another
a sinner released from captivity because Christ took my place.
He is all in all, the best friend anyone ever had.
when my Saviour reached down for me,
He had to reach waaaaaaay down for me.
I was lost and undone,
without God’s only Son,
when my Saviour reached down for me.
II Corinthians 6:2
behold, now is the day of salvation.
