“In Christ alone my hope is found,
He is my light, my strength, my song
This Cornerstone, this solid Ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My Comforter, my ALL in all
Here in the Love of Christ I stand.” https://slideplayer.com/amp/13417459/
In Christ alone! – who took on flesh,
Fullness of God in helpless babe.
This gift of love and righteousness,
Scorned by the ones He came to save
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live.
There in the ground His body lay,
Light of the world by darkness slain:
Then bursting forth in glorious day
Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me,
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.
No guilt in life, no fear in death,
This is the power of Christ in me
From life’s first cry to final breath,
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand
Till He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand.”
Amen. It floors me that we were known BEFORE we were created! Each one of us; nothing occurs by “chance” except our decisions! Which are DECIDED within us. Our paths are predestined.
Our decision KEY!
Reading this share, something came to my heart: Jesus’ path was Written, Known and EXACTLY how it was written was as it IS!
EVEN to Jesus’ being hung on a tree.
The exact occurences of the 3 temptations was to TEST if the Human aspect of The Word would fold.
Jesus was tempted three times. The temptations were hedonism (hunger/satisfaction), egoism (spectacular throw/might) and materialism (kingdoms/wealth). John the Evangelist in his epistle calls these temptations “in world” as “lust of eyes” (materialism), “lust of body” (hedonism) and “pride of life” (egoism).
Everyday, we are tested. Often we fall. His Love sustains us as we are rooted in The Word.
Wow! We could definitely go on!
