Man of Sorrows

Man of Sorrows | EasterRecently while the grandchildren were visiting Beth heard Abby, our six year old, singing while playing.  She recognized the old hymn, ‘Man of Sorrows’ written by P. P. Bliss shortly before his death.

This was a blessing for more than one reason.  First, to hear this precious girl sing this blessed old hymn was wonderful.  Just the fact that she knew every word, especially considering her age, and the music that she could have been singing.

It also brought me into remembrance of the season that we are about to enter.  The first verse says, “Man of Sorrows!” what a name for the Son of God, who came ruined sinners to reclaim! Hallelujah, what a Savior! This first verse reminds us of what we are – ruined sinners – and that he came to reclaim us.

Bearing shame and scoffing rude, in my place condemned He stood – Sealed my pardon with His blood: Hallelujah, what a Savior! What shame and humiliation He suffered so that I would be pardoned from my sins.

Guilty, vile and helpless we, spotless Lamb of God was He; full atonement! Can it be? Hallelujah, what a Savior! He became sin for us so that we might obtain His righteousness.

Lifted up was He to die, “It is finished,” was His cry; now in heav’n exalted high: Hallelujah, what a Savior! He has made me to sit in heavenly places.

When He comes, our glorious King, all His ransomed home to bring, then anew this song we’ll sing: Hallelujah, what a Savior! O my, just to think that we have a heavenly home that is awaiting our arrival. One day when we think not He will return and take his children home.

During this Easter season it is my prayer that we will concentrate on this ‘Man of Sorrows’ who suffered, bled, and died, but then rose from the dead that we might receive ‘full atonement’ for our sins.  With so many ‘false gospels’ being propagated it is such a blessing to know that we have the Word, the true Word, which clearly tells us of this ‘Man’, His work, and our hope of eternal life through the blood of Jesus Christ. He says, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6)

Until next time,

Evangelist Tom Gilliam

We say a special THANK YOU to those of you who have prayed for and asked about my Father.  At this time he is making some progress in rehab. He did spend week before last in the hospital due to a urinary tract infection. We, as a family, need discernment concerning their future.  Please pray that God will lead in a plain path, as I know that He will, if we are willing to follow His leadership

March was a busy month. We had such good meetings and times of fellowship with Pastor Dick Wade, Kelly, NC, Pastor Ricky Bice, Hiram, GA, Pastor Earl Farley, Camp Zion, Pastor Dennis Kennedy, Butler, AL, and Pastor Sam Cravatt, Ootlewah, TN. These churches were so gracious not only to receive us, but also the precious Word of God.

Our Lord is so good. We always know this but at this time of year when everything is in bloom, we are more assured of Him and all that He does for us on a continual basis. HE IS A SAVIOR TO BE MADE MUCH OF!
