1 Samuel 6:20a “Who is able to stand in the presence of the LORD, this holy God?” they cried out.

Questions can lead us to the truth or cause us to drop off into despair. Who indeed can lead us into the presence of God? Too many people spend their entire lives seeking to justify themselves to God. Man cannot justify himself. The Bible tells us that all have sinned (Romans 3:23) but God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners (Romans 5:8). Therefore anyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved (Romans 10:13).

Good news for a troubled world. In Christ we can come to the Lord. Your life is important to Jesus.


Troubled world
Struggling hearts
Hurting souls
Do I count?

What is this?
The life I lead
Am I strong?
Can I live?

All around
Others rejoice
I seek the Lord
But problems seek me

Stop your worry
Spend you time
Sitting with Jesus
He will refine

The life you lead
Counts with Christ
Your soul is His
Claim paradise

Perspective is strong
See your strength
Each day you live
Is victory

The Lord is here
He is fighting for you
Stand real close
Christ is using you
