“never build your case for forgiveness on the idea that God is our Father and He will forgive us because he loves us…” Oswald Chambers

The week after the Resurrection, yes 2000+ years after the Resurrection, Jesus is still alive. Jesus is still the ONLY atonement for sin that would/did/does appease the wrath of a Holy God…

To complete the quote in the title of this post Oswald Chambers goes on to say, “God forgives sin ONLY because of the death of Christ…anything that LESSENS the holiness of God through a false view of His love, contradicts the truth of God as REVEALED by Jesus Christ…”

This truth has radically changed me…

I beg you friend, do not contrive for me
yet another design of how to be…
Holy
When I do wrong and am severed from
His Joy
Your penal guilt cannot restore…
my wounded soul.
My God is full of light and grace
His eyes see where my failures…
Lie
Do not promote for me more alters
that do not lead to…
Transformation
Dilute not His New Wine
with the dredges of obligation
It is His very own mystery that eradicates
My guilt
The only righteous judgment is in the blood
He spilt…
Jesus saves me
