Paying Every Cost

From Matthew 4:16-17:  “The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light, and for those who sat in the region and shadow of death light has dawned.”

Beneath ocean’s depths

Hearing whispers of hope

God’s mercy always reigns

Transforming life’s scope


Atop mountain peaks

Echoing faith sings out

God’s righteousness descends

Removing all doubt


Across each valley

Lasting hymns, filled with pride

God’s nurturing love acts

Sending grace, Son guides


Throughout darkest world

Navigating light now leads

Christ’s faithful message calms

Healing’s peace proceeds


From Calvary’s cross

Searching for sheep, now lost

Good Shepherd never fails

Paying every cost

From Hebrews 13:20-21:  “Now may the God of peace, who brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, make you complete in everything good so that you may do His will, as He works among us that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever.  Amen.”

  1. “Paying every cost” says it all. We are eternally indebted to Jesus, but He paid the debt for us so that we can stand before the Father, holy and forgiven. It boggles my mind that some don’t believe in our Savior.
