True: God’s Plan of Salvation

God’s plan to save mankind was to send His one and only Son, Jesus. Remember, God wanted a relationship with us, but sin caused us to be separated from God.

Luke 19:10 states Jesus’ purpose for coming: “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.” (That’s you and me!) Our salvation is a free gift, paid for in full by Jesus.

True: God Is Holy and We Are Sinners

If only God is holy, what does that mean for us? How can we ever have a relationship with Him and eventually join Him in His amazing new heaven and earth? The good news is “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16) And “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 6:23) Continue reading

My Salvation Story

What did this mean and what if it’s true?
Jesus was God’s Son, I believed too!
So, we met with the preacher, my folks and me
I learned Jesus died to set us all free

Receiving His mercy, humbled by grace
Buried in baptism, my sins washed away
I was raised from the water to live a new life
With His Spirit inside me, forever my guide

Don’t Blame Him

Please don’t be mad at God
Because of what I did
Don’t turn away from Him
Because of things I said
I was someone you looked up to
But got tangled up in sin
Don’t blame Him!
Don’t blame Him! Continue reading

The Whisper

I heard the whisper
In my spirit, it felt wrong
But then the world echoed It louder and long

And louder and louder
And louder, it rang
Bombarding my mind Invading my space

Transforming my thinking,
Attacking my mind
Encouraging me to leave What I valued behind

The battle raged on Between Truth, between lie
Between what my heart taught
Between wrong, between right
