Tweede kerstdag: Christmas song

Woensdag 26 December 2007 om 07:00

He didn't come to terrify
To judge or condescend
To call us all His servants
But to lift us as His friends
To save us all from certain death
To reign at his right hand
When once for all eternity
God became a man

Don Francisco (1946), trouwe bezoekers zijn 'm al vaker tegengekomen op KQ, is met zijn vrouw Wendy de drijvende kracht achter Rocky Mountain Ministries. Als 28-jarige beroepsmuzikant werd hij door God in z'n kladden gegrepen. Sindsdien maakt hij muziek met een glasheldere boodschap.

We have been made right with God through Jesus. Be careful to promote the correct message. In Jesus, the sin of this world has been removed as far as east is from west permanently - as a gift. The only way to benefit from this is to believe it! (...) If there is blindness in the church, it centers around this issue. Most churches continue to lay the foundations of repentance of sins, over and over completely missing the point of the attonement. This ignorance of the purpose and power of the Cross locks people into an unwinnable battle with personal sin. It lowers our heads. (...) Our right standing before God is a gift. We have to grasp that before we can take a second step. This is the Gospel that God wants us to sing from the rooftops to people of every age, race, religion, and nationality. (...) We don't have to get good to know God. That's why Jesus died, so that we could come boldly before His throne - not based on our snootiness, but based on His grace. Nothing is more healing than finally getting a grip on the fact that through the Cross, and the Cross alone, you are totally loved and accepted.

De illustratie van vandaag (uiteraard opklikbaar) is 'Messiah' van de Chineze kunstenaar He Qi.

The center of the ages
The Lord talks with a girl
And by the words He speaks
He gives a Savior to the world

The time grows to it's fullness
And Mary's Son is born
The Promise His fulfillment
Lies asleep now in her arms

He didn't come to terrify
To judge or condescend
To call us all His servants
But to lift us as His friends
To save us all from satan's power
To reign at his right hand
In the little town of Bethlehem
When God became a man

The Day the God of majesty
Was given to the earth
The gift of such magnificence
We could never plot it's worth
And the rudeness of the setting
Just ignites the jewels fire
A pearl beyond the greatest price
The Joy of Man's desire

The Day the God of majesty
Was given to the earth
A gift of such magnificence
We could never plot it's worth
And the rudeness of the setting
Just ignites the jewels fire
A pearl beyond the greatest price
The Joy of Man's desire

He didn't come to terrify
To judge or condescend
To call us all His servants
But to lift us as His friends
To save us all from certain death
To reign at his right hand
When once for all eternity
God became a man
