40 Songs for 40 Days – Day 29

Please refer to the March 5, 2014 – Ash Wednesday post for the Introduction to this Music Experience for Lent.

FSFD029 Song Title: Believe and Receive – Colossians 1:19-23 (If you don’t have a Bible handy, you can read this passage at BibleGateway.com)

Believe and receive. Believe and receive. God is waiting for us.

Believe and receive. Believe and receive. God is waiting for us.

Believe in His Word. Believe in God’s truth. Christ has died for us.

Believe in His will. Believe in God’s Son. Christ has died for us.

Christ has died for us.


About Bonita B. Evans

Since I was young I have felt God's presence in my life. I have been singing Christian music since I was a small child. Reading and studying the Bible have become more and more important in my life. In 2008, songs started coming into my head when reading, driving and also sleeping, so I decided to write them down and share them. For Christmas 2008, I recorded a ten song CD for my family and friends. For Advent 2009, I shared the first version of "A Flame in My Heart" with my church, family and friends. In 2011, I created and shared in this blog "40 Songs for 40 Days" for Lent. For Advent 2011 and 2012 I posted revised versions of "A Flame in My Heart". For Lent 2013 I reposted "40 Songs for 40 Days". I am not sure why this has all happened but I consider it to be a gift from God.

    No one is good enough to save himself or herself. If we want to live eternally with Christ, we must depend totally on God’s grace. This is true whether we have been murderers or honest, hardworking citizens. We have all sinned repeatedly, and any sin is enough to cause us to need to come to Jesus Christ for salvation and eternal life. Apart from Christ, there is no way for our sin to be forgiven and removed.
    The way to be free from sin is to trust Jesus Christ to take it away. We must stand firmly in the truth of the Good News, putting our confidence in Jesus alone to forgive our sins, to make us right with God, and to empower us to live the way he desires. When a judge in a court of law declares the defendant not guilty, the person is acquitted of all the accusations or charges. Legally, it is as if he or she had never been accused. When God forgives our sins, our record is wiped clean. From his perspective, it is as though we had never sinned. God’s solution is available to you. No matter what you have done or what you have been like, God’s forgiveness is for you.
