The Key To Forgiveness
Author requests article critique
The cross is God's key to forgiveness,
Release from sin's guilt and its shame,
And only through Jesus
Has sin's price been paid
So we can be called by His name.
The prison of guilt will destroy us,
It's only through Jesus we're free,
No other religions,
No service performed,
It's Jesus, God's Son, who's the key.
He left all the riches of heaven
Because of His love for all men,
And offered His life
As the price for all sin
So we a new life can begin.
For justice demanded the sentence of death,
And He took my place on that tree,
And though I repented
It still must be paid,
By His death from guilt I am free.
Yet He held all power in heaven
And could by a word be set free,
My sin was the nails
Used to hang Him,
But love held Him there just for me.
He suffered all sin's degradation
And willingly died in my place,
So I have the option,
Accept His free gift,
And sin's guilty stains He'll erase.
For death could not hold Him a prisoner,
His life was restored by God's power,
Through His resurrection
I too live again,
And He all my guilt will devour.
"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 6:23 (NIV)
"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 (NIV)
"All honor to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, for it is by his boundless mercy that God has given us the privilege of being born again. Now we live with a wonderful expectation because Jesus Christ rose again from the dead. For God has reserved a priceless inheritance for his children. It is kept in heaven for you, pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay." I Peter 1:3-4 (New Living Translation)
