Redemption, Deliverance, Salvation – Not Just Any Words

A.W. Tozer

“The only cross in all of history that was turned into an altar was the cross on which Jesus Christ died. It was a Roman cross. They nailed Him on it, and God, in His majesty and mystery, turned it into an altar. The Lamb who was dying in the mystery and wonder of God was turned into the Priest who offered Himself. No one else was a worthy offering.”

GOD’S SACRIFICE

 

Our Heavenly Father,
Look down from above
On the world you’ve created
Out of words of love

 

Lord, when you spoke
Precious life into being,
You created so perfect
Each and everything

 

But when we sinned,
Perfection was lost
And separation from you
Was the price it cost

 

I know many times
Throughout the future years,
You tried so hard in vain
To draw us all near

 

It took your dear Son
To pay the ultimate price
When He laid it all down
The most holy sacrifice

 

The price Jesus paid
Has brought back to you
The fellowship we had
When we were born anew

“If man had his way, the plan of redemption would be an endless and bloody conflict. In reality, salvation was bought not by Jesus’ fist, but by His nail-pierced hands; not by muscle but by love; not by vengeance but by forgiveness; not by force but by sacrifice. Jesus Christ our Lord surrendered in order that He might win; He destroyed His enemies by dying for them and conquered death by allowing death to conquer Him.”
