For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. Jn 3:16
We are born into this life, dead in sin Eph 2:1, following the ways of this world of which Satan is the ruler Eph 2:2, gratifying the cravings of our flesh, and following its desires and thoughts. Like everyone else, we deserve God’s judgment Eph 2:3.
The spider web is an appropriate image for lost man’s dilemma. When unaware of his plight, he happily enjoys his entanglement in the world. However, when man’s soul awakens with the need to find God, he strives to enter on his own strength but cannot break Satan’s fleshly sinful threads. There is only “One” way to enter the kingdom of God and that is through Jesus, who calls to those that have ears “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me” Mk 8:34. By denying our flesh (repenting and humbling ourselves), agreeing with God that we are sinners deserving death, we receive Christ’s forgiveness 1 Jn 1:9 and His Holy Spirit, with the power Ro 8:11 to begin to live for Him Ro 6:11.
WHEN YOUR WALKING DOWN LIFE’S ROAD
AND WONDERING THE BEST WAY TO GO
WITH A LITTLE PRAYER
GOD WILL TAKE YOU THERE
HIS WORD WILL LIGHT YOUR WAY
BUT IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT TO SAY
DON’T BE AFRAID
HE WALKS BESIDE YOU EVERY DAY
There came a time in my life when I asked myself, “What is life all about?” So, I decided to seek out that answer. God revealed Himself to me at university, when a young hippie evangelist came to our school residence and shared the Gospel. I finally found my purpose to make life meaningful. Through the years, God’s Holy Spirit and Word have molded me into the person I am today.
In the beginning, I did not know how to talk with God, but He has always been there, every day, to help me with whatever problem arose.
COME ON MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION
DON’T YOU WANT TO GO TO HEAVEN
HE’LL TAKE YOU THERE
HE’LL TAKE THERE (2X)
|I made the right decision and have never regretted it. The benefits are unbelievable, not only in this life but in the next one too. Jesus gave me peace, purpose, value and love for others.|
WHEN YOU’RE FEELING ALL ALONE
WHEN YOUR WORRIES HIT LIKE STONES
GOD’S LOVE CAN HEAL
HE KNOWS JUST HOW YOU FEEL
AND IF YOU HAVE AN ACHING HEART
HE MENDS EVERY BROKEN PART
TO LIFT YOUR SOUL
AND MAKE YOU WHOLE
|Losing my wife Julia to cancer was the biggest trial of my life. I know what Heman, the psalmist of Psalm 88 meant when he said “darkness is my closest friend” Ps 88:18.
After feeling God did not understand or care about my loneliness, the Holy Spirit revealed to me that Jesus was also separated from His Father at the cross, the first time since eternity Mt 27:46. His trial humbled me and healed my broken heart.
WHEN YOU KNOW WHAT GOD HAS DONE
HE GAVE HIS ONE AND ONLY SON
SO BELIEVE IN HIM
HE’LL TAKE AWAY YOUR SINS
AND YOU WILL FIND A BRAND NEW LIFE
LIKE MORNING BREAKING AFTER NIGHT
AND SEE WHAT GOD HAS MADE
DON’T YOU KNOW THERE‘S NO OTHER WAY
|God has shown me how much He loves me by sending His righteous Son to die for my sins. So I put my trust in Jesus, that my sins were washed away, and started living a new life for God rather than for myself.
The days got brighter as I learned more and more about God’s Word and His plan for my life. There is no other life than the one Jesus offers us.
WALKING, WALKING DOWN THE ROAD
YOU DON’T HAVE TO WALK ALONE
WALKING, WALKING DOWN THAT ROAD
YOU DON’T HAVE TO WALK ALONE
|During this life, I have had my share of trials but I never had to handle them alone for Jesus has fulfilled His promise that He’ll never leave or forsake me Heb 13:5.|
|VERSE 2 REPEAT|
OH COME ON MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION
AH DON’T YOU WANNA GO
DON’T YOU, DON’T YOU WANNA GO
|I pray that you will give Jesus the chance to prove that He is who He says He is. Don’t you wanna go?|
