The Christian faith is one of promises fulfilled. This faith has under its coat some of the most ridiculous promises—ridiculous in a worldly sense—like one man living and dying to set over a billion captives free!
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life(KJV)”. [Emphasis mine].
“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever (KJV)”.
Then in fellowship sweetWe will sit at his feet,Or will walk by his side in the way;What he says we will do,Where he sends we will go,Never fear only trust and obey.
To our bountiful father above,We will offer the tribute of praise,For the glorious gift of his love,And the blessings that hollow our days.
