The Outcome!

One moment pronounced guilty and sentenced to eternal punishment; the next moment, we find that “Another” paid our penalty in full. All charges are dropped and we go scot-free! Such is the grace of God toward all who place their trust in Jesus as their Savior and Lord! Paul, in Romans 5:1-2, gives us the inspired summary of what our trust in Jesus made possible: “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: by Whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.” Further on in Verse 8, we are reminded of the wonder of God’s love: “But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” When we couldn’t care less, God couldn’t care more! Margaret J. Harris’ hymn, “He Took My Sins Away,” captures some of the wonder of the outcome of genuine trust in Christ: “I came to Jesus, weary, worn, and sad,  He took my sins away, He took my sins away, and now His love has made my heart so glad, He took my sins away. The load of sin was more than I could bear. He took them all away, He took them all away, and now on Him I roll my every care, He took my sins away. No condemnation have I in my heart, He took my sins away, He took my sins away.  His perfect peace He did to me impart, He took my sins away. If you will come to Jesus Christ today, He’ll take your sins away, He’ll take your sins away, and keep you happy in His love each day, He’ll take your sins away. He took my sins away, He took my sins away, and keeps me singing every day! I’m so glad He took my sins away. He took my sins away.” Selah! He took our sins away and gave us His Son! This is the most amazing transaction that we could ever experience! If you haven’t done this, do it now, while the offer is on the table.   Ron
