Praise the Lord! Worship the God of the heavens who truly saves. Pray to the One who love us dearly and answers our prayers. 3Jesus is the way to eternal life in heaven and because of Him, we can be saved. We are all lost in this sinful world but the Holy Spirit can pull us out from these traps. We can be free from the snares of the evil one because of Jesus. Those in Christ, had no way out until they found the Lord. He was the one who changed their hearts. Temptations from Satan no longer have their way inside of them, for their faith in the Lord prevails. This choice to follow God has led helped them find a way out of their awful and sinful state. Guilt and shame may have torn them up inside but they have finally had enough. 2Seeking Jesus gave them that way out. You see, Jesus provides this way out of our old sinful life. He is our Savior. We can truly start a new way of living through His hand of mercy. We may not have the power to break the chains that bind us but He can do all things. For everyone that puts there trust in Jesus, they are delivered from all wickedness of this world. They are transformed and brought from death into light. They are free from their sins and made righteous through Christ. 1“Praise the name of the Lord”, for Jesus saves. He is mighty to save us all. 1“Blessed be the name of the Lord from this time forth and for evermore.”
Just to think about what the Lord Jesus has done for me and all mankind is amazing. My mind is blown just thinking about the cross. 5Only Jesus could take upon the weight of our sins that we may be forgiven. Oh what love. Oh what mercy. Only Jesus has the power to do such marvelous things. His selfless act of love is the greatest display of love ever shown. Nobody is like Him. 4The Lord Jesus reigns supreme in the heavens, sitting on the right hand of God. 1“Who is like unto the Lord our God, who dwelleth on high.” 1“The Lord is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens.” I pray that you honor Him with your whole heart and worship His holy Name. He is worthy of all praise. Give your thanks to God for pulling you out of a life of sin and placing you on His righteous path. We could never do this on our own. Without Jesus we would still be struggling, in this life, and be on a path to hell. 2Instead of going downward, on this broad way to destruction, Jesus redirects us upward, on His pathway to heaven. His love leads us straightway home. If you are His, then you know this to be true. 1“Who humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven, and in the earth!” I pray that you are with me in this. For those that haven’t given their heart to Jesus, do so now. Give your life to Christ. Repent and believe in Jesus. To everyone that believes in Jesus, 1“praise ye the Lord.”
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, it is so good to praise You. It is so good to give You thanks. You are so deserving of honor and praise. I am so grateful to be called Your son. Thank You for calling me in and forgiving my sins. I was so lost without You. My life kept falling into the same traps, over and over again, until I finally had enough. All I needed to do was reach out for You and You did the rest. You saw my humble heart and answered my call. You saw my chains and cut me loose. You took my evil thoughts and cast them out. My heart was wicked but Your blood has cleansed it. I am free at last because of You, Jesus. I am born again in Your love. Now that You have saved me from a life of sin, all I want to do is praise You. I want everyone to know that You are our Savior. People can also find peace and mercy, if they trust in You. I know that only You, Jesus, saves. For this reason, I put my trust in You till the end of times. I will love You forevermore. Amen.
