Yesterday I was at Panera dipping my french bread in my garden vegetable soup when all of a sudden I realized I heard Jimmy Needham (one of my favorite musicians)! His song "Forgiven and Loved" was playing through the Panera sound system. At first I was a little shocked to hear this openly Christian song playing in a public place....but HOW COOL!

The last part of the song says this:

"O He died, He died to rectify my hopeless situation
And His blood commands my guilt to leave
Now on Calvary I stand
Empty pockets, open hands
O there is no condemnation for me"

I am reminded of Romans 8....

"So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death."

What a great message that the world needs to hear! Christ died to save you from death. He offers Complete forgiveness and love! 

(Listen to the song :)
