God's gift to us.

Glory to my Lord,
He who redeemes my soul.
All thanks to Him,
for doing all of this for me.

He saved me from God's wrath,
during judgements day.
He payed the price,
I had to pay through my sins.

He took all of my sins penalty,
with Him on the cross.
He was willing to pay with death,
so I could come free before God.

The third day He arose from the grave,
Halleluya, what a joyous day it was.
Our freedom in Jesus Christ had begun,
salvation was given to us through Him.

It is a gift God had in mind for mankind,
given freely to those wanting to receive it.
A free gift leading towards eternal life,
salvation by grace alone, through faith.

Amen to this...

So sad that many will not accept it as a gift but insult Jesus by trying to pay for it with their Works .. When Isaiah revealed that all our works are as filthy rags to God..


Isaiah 64: KJV
"{6} But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away."

Thanks for your comment. :)

True. Perhaps because we live in a world where we are taught about "conditional love" the most, so it is difficult understanding how unconditional love truly is? Now; There exists unconditional love as well, often one describes the love between parents and children as unconditional. Still, a lot of the ways of the world is more "conditional love" based.

We are also not saved 'cause of our works but by grace alone.

Ephesians 2, 8-9: For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Not too sure of if I understand what you mean with the first sentence part?

But it is true about the last part concerning the harvest.

Matthew 9, 37-38: Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”

Thanks for your comment again, too. :)

Conditional Love is the Way people think.. People don't really need to be taught it.. The vast majority of people simply have it as their standard POV when it comes to Loving and being Loved and other types of relationships.. But the Way God thinks is not the same as people think.. His thinking is Higher then our thinking.. People need to Believe God and understand He is longsuffering towards us and quick to forgive.. But people end up humanising God.. Thinking God is like them.. So they cannot accept that the Atonement and eternal salvation is a Loving gift from the Perfect God..

Isaiah 55: KJV
6 "¶ Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: {7} Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. {8} ¶ For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. {9} For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts."

It sure is a standard point of view for most people, yet that most build up love through conditional love is also more based on people's needs as well as from expectations given. "How much I give you!" - "How much you should give back to me!" Though I do think people learn about this from the time they are small, if you never teach a child that when someone gives you something you should give something else back in return, then the child would become awfully self-absorbed.

I do agree with your last part; God's ways and thoughts are indeed higher than our's. :) Thanks again for your comment! Be blessed in Christ Jesus's name!
