Hymn of the Week - Grace Greater Than Our Sin

Grace Greater Than Our Sin by Julia H. Johnston

Marvelous grace of our loving Lord,
Grace that exceeds our sin and our guilt!
Yonder on Calvary’s mount outpoured,
There where the blood of the Lamb was spilled.


Grace, grace, God’s grace,
Grace that will pardon and cleanse within;
Grace, grace, God’s grace,
Grace that is greater than all our sin.

Sin and despair, like the sea waves cold,
Threaten the soul with infinite loss;
Grace that is greater, yes, grace untold,
Points to the refuge, the mighty cross.


Dark is the stain that we cannot hide.
What can avail to wash it away?
Look! There is flowing a crimson tide,
Brighter than snow you may be today.


Marvelous, infinite, matchless grace,
Freely bestowed on all who believe!
You that are longing to see His face,
Will you this moment His grace receive?

Debates between Christians and Atheists

I found an interesting web site that features debates between Christians and atheists. If you are a Christian who is interested in learning about arguments that are effective in presenting the case for Jesus Christ, his death, burial and resurrection as well as the case for the truth and reliability of the Bible, check this out. Check out the top ten downloads listed at the right side of the home page of the site.

Some particularly interesting debates are:

Is the Bible historically reliable?

William Lane Craig vs Stephen Law-Does God Exist?

William Lane Craig vs Peter Millican - Does God Exist?

I'd like to hear what you think.

The Romans 52 - Week 1 - Romans 1:16

As this new year was getting underway, I was trying to think through a series of verses that we might challenge ourselves to memorize during this year. I wanted it to be relatively simple and yet spiritually helpful. What I came up with is a series of verses chosen primarily from the first eight chapters of the book of Romans. These verses capture the highlights of Paul's argument in his helpful epistle. I'm calling this series, "The Romans 52." Why not plan on joining us as we memorize these key verses.

Romans 1:16 "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek."
