I praise You for the blood You shed
Upon that lonely tree
Today we continue sharing the first song on our latest CD, Before Your Throne. It is the title track entitled, I Stand Before Your Throne.
If it had not been for Jesus' death on the cross, we would not be able to receive Him as our Lord and Savior.
These lyrics point directly to the fact that it is only the blood of Jesus that cleanses us from sin. His blood washes all of our sins away.
His death on the cross was harrowing, horrific and humiliating. He faced death willingly, alone, separated from the people He loved on this earth, and also from His Father in Heaven.
The loneliness and pain of His death was a miracle for us. It enabled us to have a New Covenant relationship with our heavenly Father.
Hallelujah! What a Savior Jesus Christ is!
For Christ died for sins once and for all, a good man on behalf of sinners, in order to lead you to God. He was put to death physically, but made alive spiritually. (1 Peter 3:18)
And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood. (Revelation 1:5)
Dear Lord, it is by the blood of Jesus that we are cleansed from all sin and are able to come into Your presence. We thank You for providing this path for us to be called Your sons and daughters. Amen.
