Before the throne of God above

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 with God He stands
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 the sinless Savior died,
My sinful soul is counted free;
For God, the Just, is satisfied
To look on Him and pardon me.
Behold Him there, the risen Lamb!
My perfect, spotless Righteousness,
The great unchangeable I AM,
The King of glory and of grace.
One with 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.

This song perfectly affirms the salvation of Jesus Christ. As Paul wrote in Romans 4: " Now to the one WHO DOES NOT WORK, but believes in God who JUSTIFIES THE UNGODLY, his faith is counted as righteousness".

I love God. This reminds me of the TRUE REASON Christian names are chosen. People aren't always born to a perfect family or even a believing one in the TRUE FAITH OF JESUS CHRIST. That does not mean we can not change in and for God Himself. Think what Ruth and Esther had you may have as well!!! :)
