From Paul’s letter to the believers in Corinth we read,

  • “Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been bought with a price; therefore glorify God in you body.” (I Corinthians 6:19-20 – NASB)

 
Yesterday in our morning worship service we sang the old hymn, Jesus Paid It All. As the words came from my mouth I was moved in my spirit with a great deal of emotion. The old hymns do that to me. As I sing them I am so reminded of just who I am and what I deserve . . . but yet . . . . oh my Savior! He has “paid it all.” I have “been bought with a price,” by the precious blood of God Himself! Brethren . . . . I am not worthy, but oh He is! 
 

  • “I hear the Savior say, ‘Thy strength indeed is small!
  • Child of weakness, watch and pray, find in Me thine all in all.’

 
The refrain,
 

  • “Jesus paid it all, All to Him I owe; 
  • Sin had left a crimson stain — He washed it white as snow.”

 
Oh yes my “Savior,” how I realize so often that my “strength indeed is small.” And when I consider the magnitude of my sin I am weakened even more. For how could so heavy a load of rebellion ever warrant anything but condemnation. I could never pay the price for the penalty due my sin. But it is then I call to mind . . . “Jesus paid it all” and I am lifted up and it is brought to my remembrance that I have “been bought with a price,” and the One who has purchased me has “washed” that “crimson stain . . . white as snow.” 
 

  • “Lord, now indeed I find Thy pow’r and Thine alone, 
  • can change the leper’s spots and melt the heart of stone.” 

 

  • “For nothing good have I whereby They grace to claim —
  • I’ll was my garments white in the blood of Cal-vry’s Lamb.”

 
This old and wonderful hymn, how I rejoiced that we have not forgotten it. Great and majestic words that cause us to pause and to ponder the work of our Savior and the salvation He has “paid” the price for. And most appropriately, the old hymn leads me in ending words that cause my spirit to be exceedingly joyful, 
 

  • “And when before the throne I stand in Him complete,
  • Jesus died my soul to save, My lips shall still repeat.”

 

  • “Jesus paid it all, All to Him I owe;
  • Sin had left a crimson stain — He washed it white as snow.”

 
Oh that I never, ever, forget what my “Jesus” has done for me! Oh that none of us ever forget!
 
Have a good day brethren . . . do you know the old hymns? They are rich in valuable doctrine, doctrine that blesses the soul. I urge you to look into them, listen to them, learn them.
