Music: Building 429 “Blameless”

Posted: Saturday, February 4, 2017 in Music

Occasionally on my morning run I have a certain lyric that grips my attention. I have been studying again the beauty of our adoption by God in Christ. 1 John 3:1, “See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are.” He was our Judge – He is now our Father!

The following lyrics point to that truth and touch upon one thing that means for us – the forgiveness of sins. A loving Father doesn’t overlook sin, but He does overlook the penalty and the guilt for sin if one is truly in Christ. A loving Father no longer punishes, but disciplines His children (Hebrews 12:5-11). So, wake up child of God, and live in the freedom of forgiveness that is yours!

i’m not who i used to be

blameless, you have made me blameless
sin has been made nameless
doesn’t matter who i was before
i am
shameless, you have made me shameless
sin has been made nameless
cause your love has come and left its mark
and i am blameless

if only we could
wake up, wake up, oh sleepers
we are children of our god
lift up your eyes oh people
there is freedom in his arms

you are blameless…
