Knowing You...

As I usually say on a SONday here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'm heading to worship with my current church family!

Walkerville Evangelical Baptist Church, has turned out to be a great place for me to worship.  I feel comfortable spending time and worshipping there.  I praise God for this!  Thank You, Lord!

Someone I know posted a song I love, on Facebook.  Upon coming across the Youtube link, I decided immediately to use it, today.

It was written by Graham Kendrick.  Here is a link to the song entitled, All I Once Held Dear (Knowing You), and is sung on this link by Robin Markhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oxpPIa-BskY&feature=player_embedded.

All I Once Held Dear (Knowing You)

All I once held dear
Built my life upon
All this world reveres
And wars to own
All I once thought gain
I have counted loss
Spent and worthless now
Compared to this

Knowing You Jesus, knowing You
There is no greater thing
You're my all You're the best
You're my joy my righteousness
And I love You Lord

Now my heart's desire
Is to know You more
To be found in You
And known as Yours
To possess by faith
What I could not earn
All-surpassing gift of righteousness

Knowing You Jesus, knowing You
There is no greater thing
You're my all You're the best
You're my joy my righteousness
And I love You Lord

Oh to know the power of Your risen life
And to know You in Your sufferings
To become like You
In Your death my Lord
So with You to live and never die

Knowing You Jesus, knowing You
There is no greater thing
You're my all You're the best
You're my joy my righteousness
And I love You Lord

And I love You Lord
And I love You Lord

Knowing You Jesus, knowing You
There is no greater thing
You're my all You're the best
You're my joy my righteousness
And I love You Lord


Yes, I love You, Lord! 

Through Jesus, I have been reconciled to God.  By what Jesus did, and by me trusting in Him, for my salvation.

Without Jesus, my righteousness is as filthy rags.  I am nothing.  Truly, nothing.

But, with and through Him, I have righteousness.  How do I know this?

God told us in His Word, in 2 Corinthians 5:21, " For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him."

When Jesus died on the cross of Calvary, He took on all the sin of the world... so that any/all who believe upon Him, shall not perish, but have everlasting life.

He paid the price for my sin.  And, for yours too. 

However, unless you come to Christ, in repentance and become baptized, you have not truly been totally redeemed.

My friend, come to Jesus Christ today, if you haven't already.  He's waiting for you, with open arms.


Until next time...
