    Absolutely magnificent !!!

    These words must be “Powerful! Authentic! Robust! Unashamed! Convictional! Penetrating! Refreshing!” to our whole being when listened to, even when the words are just read. The gospel so powerful it will shame the wise and the strong but so simple that a child can understand it.

    If I may, I would also like to share a link about a well known song of which the words are also “Powerful! Authentic! Robust! Unashamed! Convictional! Penetrating! Refreshing!” also even when just read.

    In Christ alone my hope is found
    He is my light, my strength, my song
    This Cornerstone, this solid ground
    Firm through the fiercest drought and storm

    What heights of love, what depths of peace
    When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
    My Comforter, my All in All
    Here in the love of Christ I stand

    In Christ alone, who took on flesh
    Fullness of God in helpless Babe
    This gift of love and righteousness
    Scorned by the ones He came to save

    Till on that cross as Jesus died
    The wrath of God was satisfied
    For every sin on Him was laid
    Here in the death of Christ I live

    There in the ground His body lay
    Light of the world by darkness slain
    Then bursting forth in glorious Day
    Up from the grave He rose again

    And as He stands in victory
    Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me
    For I am His and He is mine
    Bought with the precious blood of Christ

    No guilt in life, no fear in death
    This is the power of Christ in me
    From a life’s first cry to final breath
    Jesus commands my destiny

    No power of hell, no scheme of man
    Can ever pluck me from His hand
    Till He returns or calls me home
    Here in the power of Christ I stand
    For all other ground is sinking sand
