“Power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.” - Jesus
— Matthew 28:18-20
"This is a declaration of my dependence.", as Steven Curtis Chapman wrote in his song. My dependence on Jesus the Christ. The name above any other name. This is my real purpose. I love music, but if you take away the music, take away everything. But you can't take away the love that our Father God has for us. A love so strong adn pwoerful that He chose to give His Son as a living sacrifice, to make amends, to atone for the wrongs WE have done. When we should have been punished for our sins, God sent Jesus, the perfect Lamb of God, to pay, to redeem us unto himself. Through His blood, we have the washing of repentance. The price has been paid, all you have to do is receive it. Believe upon the Lord Jesus, believe that he died for you and was resurrected to defeat death's hold over you. Believe that He loves you, and wants you to come to him regardless of where you are right now. On drugs? Involved in prostitution, drugs, homosexuality? Any of those things and all of those things is why he died for us. To bring us back home. It is Jesus who died for our sins. He has done the work, all you have to do is believe and confess.
