The Oak

oak tree 2The New Testament presents the eternal redemptive purposes of God in Jesus Christ (TERPOGIJC) within the framework of the church. It gives us the truth of the Gospel in fully developed form.

From the Cornerstone on which the foundation’s laid
For the church of Christ Jesus, by blood bought and paid,
From the judgment for sin on the cross satisfied
To the mercy and pardon unveiled when He died
From the miracle birth out of young virgin’s womb
To the Lord’s resurrection and His empty tomb,
Ancient prophecies made, all in Him were fulfilled;
Jesus Christ has been clearly and plainly revealed.
And the people of God are made free from sin’s yoke
When by faith they take hold of the Gospel, the oak.
