The Truth That Saves

by Stephen Wong © 2019

So many people waste their lives on empty dreams and treasure,
They’re only living for selfish ways and what gives them pleasure,

So many people are trapped by sin and live under God’s wrath,
They live without hope or God’s love and are blind to the right path,

But when all seemed helpless, Christ came and paid the ultimate cost,
He died and rose back from the dead to give new life to the lost,

Now God wants this truth to be heard by all people far and wide,
The truth that they can be saved from sin and in Christ justified,

Yet this mission is too big for us to achieve on our own,
But with God we have the help we need, we are never alone,

So pray that God would send the workers to speak out his good news,
And know that as part of God’s saving plan it is us he’ll use,

God will help us to shine as bright lights in a world dark and blind,
Our lives will point to the truth that can change sinful hearts and minds,

His Spirit will be our strength and give us the right words to say,
As we seek to share the hope of Jesus to others each day,

So that as people learn about and receive Jesus through faith,
They too would find new life and rest in God’s love, secure and safe.
