Three Nails And A Cross...

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'll be saying something again, that I've said many times in the past.

Today, is our day of worship!

Hopefully, you will worship and honour our God. 

As you probably are aware, I enjoy worshipping through music, as well as through grace and truth.

My Facebook (FB) friend, Alvin Rauh posted a song on Google+.  I found I truly enjoyed it, and felt it blessed our Lord.  So, I decided to share it with you.

The song is by George Strait, and is entitled, Three Nails And A Cross.  Here is a link for you to use, to listen to and/or sing along:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VLxbXi2o_ZM.  The lyrics are below.

Three Nails And A Cross

He was sitting on the front porch of a half-way house
Chainin' cigarettes and drinkin' coffee
I was walkin' by on my way home
Stopped and said, hello, how are ya
He looked at me and said, I've seen better days
I looked at him and said, there's a better way

Three nails and a cross
Equal forgiveness
Just like you, I was lost
And that's hell to have to live with
I've sat on that front porch where you're sittin' now
I kept lookin' deep inside 'til I figured out
Three nails and a cross equal forgiveness.

She was sittin' on her bed crying crocodiles
Sixteen ain't a good age to be pregnant
And she thinks mom and dad won't love her anymore
Like the boy who swore he always would but doesn't
She turns and sees that Bible laying by her bed
And she crumbles to her knees as she bows her head

Three nails and a cross
Equal forgiveness
Lord help me cause I'm lost
And that's hell to have to live with
I need You more than ever now, without a doubt
I've made a big mistake, can You help me out
Three nails and a cross equal forgiveness
Three nails and a cross equal forgiveness


Even though this music is not considered a hymn, I felt it was truly wonderful. 

It showed to everyone how important our Lord is.  And, it made it clear that three nails and a cross... equal forgiveness.

That is what our Lord, Jesus Christ did.  He died for our sins.

For this, I praise Him!  And, thank Him!

Thank You, Lord!

After all, sin would only give us death.

Just as we read, in Romans 6:23, "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."

Yes, the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

All anyone has to do to obtain the gift of eternal life, is to trust in/believe upon our Lord, Jesus Christ (Acts 16:31).  By doing this, we gain salvation, and will spend eternity in Heaven with Him.

I've gained salvation.

Have you?

If not yet, please... come to Christ, today.  Crumble to your knees... and bow your head.

Tomorrow, may be too late.


Until next time...
