John 3:1 “There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:
2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” (KJV)
Galatians 2:20 “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
20 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.” (KJV)
Romans 8:1 “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” (KJV)
Isn’t it encouraging,
To know that God is Love?
He’s no longer angry with mankind,
For He sent His only begotten Son from Above.
And, because Christ Jesus was obedient,
Having fulfilled all the law;
We are no longer bound by it,
His sacrifice…opened Heaven’s door.
Try as best as we could,
That law…we could not keep;
Round we went…in circles,
In disappointment…it made our hearts weep.
The day we shall never forget…came,
We knew that we were undone;
Now, we were ready…we saw our need,
And, that the victory was already won.
We knew that we were sinners,
Yes, a Saviour we did need;
God had made provision for us,
The prisoner of sin…had been freed!
We confessed our sins to Him,
Asked to be ‘born again’;
We invited Jesus into our hearts,
And, it happened…that’s when!
“Live Your life out…through me”,
Is now our heart’s cry;
Because He is alive forevermore,
Our spirit-man…need never die.
Thank You, Jesus…Saviour…Lord,
For stamping my debt…PAID IN FULL;
And, for your Holy Spirit…leading me into all truth,
Yes, LORD… I am thankful!
