When Love Came Down To Earth

This isn’t a Christmas song, but it could be. We sang it on Sunday and I remembered again why I loved this song…

“When Love Came Down to Earth”
Words & music by Stuart Townend

When Love came down to earth and made His home with man
The hopeless found a hope, the sinner found a friend
Not to the powerful, but to the poor He came
And humble, hungry hearts were satisfied in Him

What joy, what peace has come to us
What hope, what help, what love

When every unclean thought and every sinful deed
Was scourged upon his back and hammered through his feet
The Innocent is cursed, the guilty are released
The punishment of God on God has brought me peace

Come lay your heavy load down at the Master’s feet
Your shame will be removed, your joy will be complete
Come crucify your pride and enter as a child
For those who bow down low He’ll lift up to His side

And nothing to do with the song, but here’s a quote I read today and really liked…

Our fundamental problem is not bad paretns, bad schools, bad friends, or bad circumstances. Our fundamental problem is a bad heart. And every single one of us is born into the world with it…We must be given a new heart. We must be regenerated. We must be converted. We must be changed. The Christian life-the life of faith in God, hope in Christ, and love for others-necessitates, first of all a life that has been given a supernatural new start by the Holy Spirit. We must be born again.
