We will be introducing a new song this Sunday titled, "Come Behold the Wondrous Mystery." It's an invitation to behold Christ! That's the point isn't it? Proclaiming in song, in prayer, and in Word (preaching) the Good News of Jesus Christ. Speaking from experience, if we aren't careful to remind ourselves of the wonder of the Gospel, Sunday morning can become anything but beholding Christ.
JESUS is the One, the "theme", the subject of heaven's praises, of our praises. God took on flesh to bring us the Light of Life: Himself! The Gospel continues...
Verse two tells us why we care about verse one. This Man is without sin?! So far we see that our God took on flesh to ransom us, to save us from hell. How? He is sinless, He is the Law fulfilled...
Where we would be defeated, He is victorious! Our redemption had a price tag so big that only the death of God could cover it!
But the value of Christ outweighed our debt! The God of Life cannot be held by the death. HE IS ALIVE! And we too, through Christ, will rise from the dead to glory in our Redeemer forever more! What a foretaste indeed!
Ready to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ, our unwavering Hope together,
