Praise God that before his throne above I have a strong, a perfect plea

“Before the throne of God above
I have a strong, a perfect plea:
A great High Priest, whose name is Love,
Who ever lives and pleads for me.

My name is graven on his hands,
My name is written on his heart;
I know that while in heaven he stands
No tongue can bid me thence depart
No tongue can bid me thence depart.

When Satan tempts me to despair,
And tells me of the guilt within,
Upward I look, and see him there
Who made an end of all my sin.

Because a sinless Savior died,
My sinful soul is counted free;
For God, the Just, is satisfied
To look on Him and pardon me
To look on Him and pardon me

Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Praise the One,
Risen Son of God!

Behold him there, the risen Lamb
My perfect, spotless righteousness,
The great unchangeable I AM,
The King of glory and of grace!

One in himself, I cannot die
My soul is purchased by his blood
My life is hid with Christ on high,
With Christ, my Savior and my God
With Christ, my Savior and my God”
~ “Before the Throne of God Above” by Shane & Shane

How amazing is it that God would love us so much that he would give us such a strong and perfect plea before him for our troubles. We had a class last night called “The Truth Project” which is done by Focus on the Family, last nights “tour” was on “Who Is God?” and after it was over, we got to talking about how amazing it is that God loves us. I mean, he created us as his crowning achievement, and he created all the world, the stars, the moon, the sun, the whole galaxy, universe, all of space, just for us! How amazing is that? The splendor that we see in all the stars was created for us, so that we can see God’s glory. But of all the stars, and the moon and sun and earth, he treasures us most, and because of that, Jesus pleads for us to God in heaven. And because of that, whenever we are tempted by Satan, we have Jesus on our side. Praise God with an attitude of love & such complete abandon that we don’t care what people think (which is actually what Hallelujah means, maybe I’ll blog on that a little later…) that we have such an amazing God.
