Testimony of Faith: Our World Belong to God #26
Being both divine and human, Jesus is the only mediator.
He alone paid the debt of our sin; there is no other Saviour.
We are chosen in Christ to become like him in every way.
God’s electing love sustains our hope: God’s grace is free to save sinners who offer nothing but their need for mercy.
Closing Song: May the Mind of Christ My Saviour
