Forgiven Forever

Once we were lost and so far away
Wandering in darkness, covered in shame
Without You
Without You

Now we've been found by a love that is stronger
No longer blind, we can see all along
It was You
It was You

Worthy is the Lamb, seated in Heaven
Beautiful the blood, we are forgiven forever
Forgiven forever
Victory is won, Jesus is risen
Love has overcome, we are forgiven forever
Forgiven forever

Before we had fallen, redemption was planned
You were our hope long before time began
It was You
It was You

And after creation is made new again
We'll join together with one voice and say
It is You
Jesus it's You

No death, no life, no present, no future
No angel, no demon, no power, no creature
Could take me away from the love that's in Jesus Christ

Your Name by Paul Baloche - Song Devotional

One of the most awesome and powerful responsibilities of parents is the naming of their children. What a privilege! A child’s personality, gifts, talents, achievements, relationships and more will come to be bound up with his or her name. In fact, names become a sort of “shorthand” for all the things that make us who we are. So, who gets to name God?

Peace On Earth

And here’s where the good news gets even better: the one who God favors are the unlikeliest of all. God shows His favor to the lowly, to the outcast, to the marginalized, to the hungry, to the sick.
