BECAUSE OF THE CROSS

Romans 8:28 “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers.
31 And those he predestined, he also CALLED; those he called, he also JUSTIFIED; those he justified, he also GLORIFIED.”
(NIV)

************

Have you ever stopped and wondered,
Have you even stopped to guess;
Do you realize the impact,
And, just how much we’re blessed?

That death upon the Cross,
And, all it procured;
Our Perfect Sacrifice,
Because of all that He endured.

So far-reaching…to one and all,
Everyone who will believe;
All its accomplishments,
More than the mind can conceive.

BECAUSE OF THE CROSS,
God sees us just as if we’ve not sinned;
We’ve been "called"…IN Christ,
His kingdom…now we’re free to enter in.

What was done upon the Cross,
God’s Perfect Lamb was slain;
We’ve been made right with our God,
While He…in another’s tomb had lain.

O’ spotless Lamb of God,
His shed blood…justified us;
Poured-out…upon the earth,
Atonement for our sin.

We’ve been washed in His blood,
Now…garments white as snow have we;
Cleaned from the inside…out,
From our old nature…set free.

BECAUSE OF THE CROSS,
We are "justified";
Not later…but right now,
Its truth…can’t be denied.

The ‘Light’ of the world was placed,
Into the darkest earth;
Was this the end of everything,
Or would there be new-birth?

Did our LORD stay in the ground,
Death have a hold on Him;
He was the ‘Light’ of the world,
Did His ‘Light’ suddenly grow dim?

If not our Perfect Sacrifice,
Then, God would have left Him there;
But, His sacrifice was accepted,
And, He shows how much He cares.

BECAUSE OF THE CROSS,
God now raised our LORD in "glory";
His brilliant ‘Light’ burst forth,
And, that tells the whole story.

Called, Justified…Glorified,
Not of ourselves…but IN our LORD;
Certainly not in the future,
But, right now…glory to God!
