They Saw The Light - Adam and Eve Part 3

Come into my heart
Come into my heart
Come into my heart, Lord Jesus
Come into today
Come in to stay
Come into my heart, Lord Jesus.
Are you lighting your candle?  It reminds us that the promise made to Adam and Eve was fulfilled through the tremendous love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  The greatest of sin is nothing compared to the richness of God's mercy.  As we confess our sin before Him, He washes us perfectly clean. Take a moment tonight in silence to present yourself before the Lord.  He is standing before you with outstretched arms.  His love for you is deep. His plans for you are marvelous.  His grace will abound in your life.

"Therefore, as through one man’s offense judgment came to all men, resulting in condemnation, even so through one Man’s righteous act the free gift came to all men, resulting in justification of life. For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous. Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more, so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 5:18-21).

Come, thou long-expected Jesus,
born to set thy people free;
from our fears and sins release us,
let us find our rest in thee.

Israel's strength and consolation,
hope of all the earth thou art:
dear desire of every nation,
joy of every longing heart.

Born thy people to deliver,
born a child, and yet a king,
born to reign in us for ever,
now thy gracious kingdom bring.

By thine own eternal Spirit
rule in all our hearts alone;
by thine all-sufficient merit
raise us to thy glorious throne.
Words: Charles Wesley (1707-1788), 1744
