As a young woman, I loved to read love stories. I dreamed of a knight in shiny armor rescuing me, or of prince- charming making me his princess. Then one fine day I heard the most amazing love story that not only my Prince came to rescue me, He died to make me able to be His eternal bride.
The Greatest Story
The greatest love story ever told is about God’s plan.
How He would save His creation called man.
It tells how He took upon Himself their sin and shame,
So they could be without blame.
He loves so much He gives man choice of their own will;
To love Him, or to their own destiny fulfill.
He has paid the price to give life eternally.
He died a shameful death so they could be free.
He was raised up from the pits of the grave.
Man chooses to believe and receive His gift or to their own debt pay.
His desire is for all to come to be One with Him.
But most do not see the way to enter in.
The greatest love story many will never understand.
They are blinded by the world; only hearing the stories of man.
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
I have chosen the way of truth: thy judgments have I laid before me.
I have stuck unto thy testimonies: O LORD, put me not to shame.
I will run the way of thy commandments, when thou shalt enlarge my heart.
Teach me, O LORD, the way of thy statutes; and I shall keep it unto the end.
Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law; yea, I shall observe it with my whole heart.
Make me to go in the path of thy commandments; for therein do I delight.
