Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners, “of whom I am chief”.

The Sent One

“I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I jusge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.” John 5:30

“Now then we are abassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us:we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.” 2 Corinthians 5:20

“Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,” Jude 24

The universal problem,

We all were born in sin.

For our first father, Adam,

Led us to fall therein!

Sin binds,blinds, breaks and bruises,

With chains so strong and thick.

This is all mankind’s problem,

This world in sin is sick!

The universal penalty,

Death should be all our fate.

But God came to the rescue,

Before it was too late!

He rescued us from darkness,

Who would in faith believe

To claim His precious remedy,

And His own Son receive!

This remedy’s eternal,

In Him we are preserved,

Sealed to the day of redemtion,

Sweet pardon undeserved!

That He may thus present us

Before His glorious throne.

Once doomed to separation,

Now stand with Him as one!

And we are represented

Before His throne of grace.

By God the Holy Spirit

Before the Father’s Face!

He sends us to lost people,

Through Him to save, secure

Others who’re lost in darkness,

And make them for Heaven sure!

Acts 17:28
