Love keeps no record of wrongs.
(1 Cor 13:5)
If you, God, kept records on wrongdoings,
who would stand a chance?
As it turns out, forgiveness is your habit,
and that's why you're worshiped.
(Ps 130:3-4, The Message)
As far as the east is from the west,
So far has He removed our transgressions from us.
But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray;
We have turned, every one, to his own way;
And the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
"I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake;
And I will not remember your sins.
No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, 'Know the Lord,' for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more."
ONLY BY GRACE
Only by grace can we enter
Only by grace can we stand
Not by our human endeavor
But by the blood of the Lamb
Lord, if You marked our transgressions
Who would stand
Thanks to Your grace we are cleansed
By the blood of the Lamb
