9-10-15 The Stain Remover

red to white

Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

Isaiah 1:18 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

Don’t be afraid, do not fall in despair;

You realize the hopeless state you’re in.

Death calls for you – it’s more than you can bear.

You can’t escape the stain of all your sin.

Just take the hand of Jesus, make Him yours.

He’ll wash your sins from scarlet red to white.

Although the stain has sunk into your pores

He’ll take the brand of Satan from your sight.

The Son of God loved you so very much

He took all of your sins upon the cross.

Accept Him as your Savior, feel His touch;

Believe He died for you and bore your loss.

Although your sins are crimson red and full,

The blood of Christ will make them white as wool.

Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD:

though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow;

though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

Isaiah 1:18 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

Don’t be afraid, don’t hide your head in shame;

No matter what you’ve done I still love you.

I’m not just made of vengeance as they claim;

You do not need to fear a harsh review.

Just lift your eyes and come to Christ in prayer;

It matters not if sins be crimson red.

My Son died for your sins, now don’t despair;

His blood will wash them white as snow instead.

I sent Him as the Lamb to sacrifice,

To die for all your sins both great and small.

Accept Him as your Lord, He paid the price;

Let Jesus in your heart, on Him do call.

On Judgment Day when you approach the throne,

You’ll have no sin, for Jesus did atone

2-23-15 Blind No More

Brian Jekel Blind Man

Your sinful life has made you blind from birth,

A stumbling clown pretending to have sight.

Until you’re touched by Christ you roam the earth,

With arms outstretched you can’t imagine light.

Then Jesus comes, the perfect Lamb of God,

His Spirit mixed with dirt and turned to clay;

He puts it on your eyes with gentle prod,

And bids you go and wash it all away.

And when you do the darkness turns to light!

You’re so transformed you won’t be recognized.

Your friends will ask you how you gained your sight,

And you will say His name so undisguised.

He’s standing here right now to touch your heart,

And when He does you’ll see He won’t depart.

~~~~~~~~~~~

10 Therefore they asked him,

“Then how were your eyes opened?”

11 He answered and said,

A man that is called Jesus made clay,

and anointed mine eyes,

and said unto me,

Go to the pool of Siloam,

and wash:

and I went and washed,

and I received sight.

John 9: 10-11 KJV
