Because Of His Love
He took the whole world’s sin and He wiped it away!
I never get tired of writing songs about God’s love; about how He took my sin, wiped it away, and gave me a clean slate. And he did that not only for me, but for the whole world!
“He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world.” (1 John 2:2)
Propitiation? What’s that?
The idea of propitiation is that of “averting God’s anger through an offering”. We understand that, don’t we? Jesus is the Lamb of God who “takes away the sin of the world”. (John 1:29) With sin having been removed, God is no longer angry with us- that is propitiation.
And that is an AWESOME truth to get down deep inside you- God is not mad at you, He loves you!
No matter how many “Jesus love songs” I’ve written there’s always room for one more- They keep bubbling up like a never ending fountain!
“And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” (Ephesians 3:17-19)
Yup, there are going to be a lot more songs about the love of Jesus to write and sing!
