Romans, FFH, and John

June 29th, 2006

Romans 3:10-20

10As it is written:

“There is no one righteous, not even one;

11there is no one who understands,

no one who seeks God.

12All have turned away,

they have together become worthless;

there is no one who does good,

not even one.”

13″Their throats are open graves;

their tongues practice deceit.”

“The poison of vipers is on their lips.”

14″Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness.”

15″Their feet are swift to shed blood;

16ruin and misery mark their ways,

17and the way of peace they do not know.”

18″There is no fear of God before their eyes.”

19Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be silenced and the whole world held accountable to God. 20Therefore no one will be declared righteous in his sight by observing the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of sin.

“All have turned away.” “Not even one.” “None will be declared righteous in his sight by observing the law.” Wow. What do you do when you stand guilty as charged? There’s not much else to say. I know I have no defense. I’m undeniably guilty. There’s no way to justify or sugarcoat it.

On My Cross – FFH

How wide is Your love

That You would stretch Your arms

And go around the world

And why for me would a Savior’s cry be heard

I don’t know

Why You went where I was meant to go

I don’t know

Why You love me so

Those were my nails

That was my crown

That pierced Your hands and Your brow

Those were my thorns

Those were my scorns

Those were my tears that fell down

And just as You said it would be

You did it all for me

After You counted the cost

You took my shame, my blame

On my cross

How deep is Your grace

That you could see my need

And chose to take my place

And then for me, these words I’d hear You say

Father no

Forgive them for they know not what they do

I will go

Because I love them so

That song really captures my mood. I know those were my nails, my thorns. All I can think is that I deserved to be up there. And I think it’s so key that we always remember that.

John 15:13

Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.

After that, how could you help but crying out to God and begging for His mercy, being blown away by the amazing love that He has for us?
