We just recently sang this Shane and Shane song in church last week. What a powerful song. This song teaches the very thing that we forget as believers. We have the enemy whispering (or sometimes shouting) that we are not good enough for Jesus' love. We are not worthy of His sacrifice. That we don't do enough. That we aren't fit to be in His Holy company.
This song is the picture of what we, as believers endure. We must remember the enemy preaches truth at us, but he leaves out the most important part. Praise God, there is another part!
I want to write more, but I don't have time to right now. Just listen to this song...let it minister to you and share your thoughts.
The father of lies
Coming to steal,
Kill and destroy
All my hopes of being good enough
I hear him saying cursed are the ones Who can’t abide
He’s right Alleluia he’s right!
The song of the redeemed
That I am
cursed and gone astray I cannot gain salvation
Could the father of lies
Be telling the truth Of God to me tonight?
If the penalty of sin is death then death is mine
I hear him saying cursed are the ones who can’t abide
Oh The devil’s singing over me
An age old song
That I am cursed and gone astray
Singing the first verse so conveniently over me
He’s forgotten the refrain
