In the beginning God created time.
Before that, there was GOD…
Always—in eternity, stretching out forever—
Our finite minds cannot really grasp infinity.
In time the first six days
Our God created all things by His all-powerful Word.
God did not use a million years…
He spoke and it came forth.
The Triune God was always there:
In the beginning was the Word,
And the Word was with God,
And the Word was God.
The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us.
We beheld His glory,
The glory of the only begotten of the Father
Full of grace and truth.
That Word was the pure expression of the Father:
Perfection! As God is perfect.
Filled with unfathomable love:
He is the essence of love.
There is no love apart from Him;
We love Him because He first loved us.
Greater love hath no man than this:
That a man lay down His life for His friends.
Children of God
Mortals, lost in a mire of sin and corruption;
There is none that doeth good; no, not one!
Yet because of the infinite love of the Holy One
His chosen people were lifted from that mire.
Unutterable transformation: the filthy and defiled,
The hopelessly depraved
Through the precious blood shed on Calvary
Became children of the Living God!
The blood of Jesus Christ cleanses from all sin.
God sees not our sin and guilt;
He sees us through the blood of the Lamb;
He sees Christ’s righteousness as ours, Hallelujah!
