NAILED TO THE CROSS
“Praise ye the LORD. Praise the LORD, O my soul. While I live will I praise the LORD: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being.”
Psalms 146:1,2 KJV
Horatio G. Spafford wrote a beautiful hymn “It Is Well with My Soul”. I’m so glad the words in this hymn are true. “My sin—oh, the bliss of this glorious thought— My sin—not in part but the whole, Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more, Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!”
Philip P. Bliss wrote “Free from the Law”. “Once for all, O sinner, receive it, Once for all, O brother, believe it; Cling to the cross, the burden will fall, Christ hath redeemed us once for all.” Jesus paid the price for your sins and for my sins. Have you invited Jesus into your heart?
Evangelist Harry D. Clarke wrote “Into My Heart”. “Into my heart, into my heart, Come into my heart, Lord Jesus; Come in today, come in to stay; Come into my heart, Lord Jesus.” If you have never invited Jesus into your heart, I urge you to do it now before it is too late. One day it will be too late.
You may be saved but does He have first place in your heart and life? Are you serving Him? If so, are you serving Him full time or just when it is convenient? Our precious Saviour gave His life for us. How can we do less than serve Him even when it is inconvenient for us?
