The Power of Love

 

Date : 2018-02-23
Speaker : Professor Steven Sippert
2 Corinthians 5:14-15
14 For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that if One died for all, then all died; 15 and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.

Hymn: TLH 342: Chief of Sinners, Though I Be

Hymnary.org Organ Audio


1. Chief of sinners though I be, 
Jesus shed His blood for me; 
Died that I might live on high, 
Lived that I might never die, 
As the branch is to the vine, 
I am His, and He is mine. 

2. Oh, the height of Jesus’ love! 
Higher than the heavens above, 
Deeper than the depths of sea, 
Lasting as eternity. 
Love that found me–wondrous thought!– 
Found me when I sought Him not. 

3. Jesus only can impart 
Balm to heal the smitten heart; 
Peace that flows from sin forgiven, 
Joy that lifts the soul to heaven; 
Faith and hope to walk with God 
In the way that Enoch trod. 

4. Chief of sinner though I be, 
Christ is All in all to me; 
All my wants to Him are known, 
All my sorrows are His own. 
Safe with Him from earthly strife, 
He sustains the hidden life. 

5. O my Savior, help afford 
By Thy Spirit and Thy Word! 
When my wayward heart would stray, 
Keep me in the narrow way; 
Grace in time of need supply 
While I live and when I die.
