Which world ?
'And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent.'
John ch.17 v.3
Your world ?
There's this world you might live in - I've lived in it too
full of selfishness, greed and lust
It was formed out of darkness, confusion and fear
by a man that was made from its dust
If you live in this world - this chaotic abyss
then we'll always be worlds apart
not because we're so different in bodily form
but for what you desire in your heart
Let me live in a world where El Shaddai rules
where the righteous are plenty and there are no fools
Let me live in a world where no darkness can reign
where there's laughter and joy and there is no pain
Live with me in this world where my Jesus is Lord
where there's treasure that rich men can never afford
If you too want this world I can show you the door
He's called Jesus ....the Saviour of this world's poor
'even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ unto all them that believe; for there is no distinction;' Romans ch.3 v.22
'The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God."' Psalm ch.14 v1
'But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from law, although the law and the prophets bear witness to it, the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction; since all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God; they are justified by His grace as a gift, through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus.whom God put forward as an expiation by His blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God's righteousness, because in His divine forbearance He had passed over former sins; it was to prove at the present time that He Himself is righteous and that He justifies him who has faith in Jesus.'
Romans ch.3 v21 - 26
