He is risen

'Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!'  John ch. 1 v.29

                            HERE   IS   SIN
 'You were dead because of your sins and because your sinful nature was not yet cut away. Then God made you alive with Christ, for he forgave all our sins. He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross.'   Colossians ch.2 vs13,14
 I look around the world and see
whole nations in distress
growing camps of refugees
full of hopelessness
I used to think that this was fate 
the way we all must die
because the world was full of hate
but this was Satan's lie
The words 'Forgive them Father
for they know not what they do'
came to my ears when I was lost
and you can hear them too
Just turn your eyes to Jesus
who hung there on that tree
He took the shame and torture
to save both you and me

'For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.                   John ch. 3 v.17

'For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. 
                                                                                          1 Corinthians ch.15 v.22
'And their sins and iniquities I will remember no more.  Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.                        
                                                                                          Hebrews ch. 10 vs 17,18
