The story behind the hymn: Burdens Are Lifted At Calvary

Dr. John Moore

Two years ago I interviewed Dr. John Moore for another project and while I was there I recorded this little video. His wife had passed away just a few weeks before.

Grace: the unmerited favour of God for sinners.

When we speak of salvation by grace alone, we mean that the Bible says that every man is a sinner before God. We have broken the first and great commandment of the law of God, which is to love God with all our soul, strength, and mind. We are all sinners, and not small sinners, but big sinners. We are dead in sin and corrupted in sin. We are self-centered and not God-centered.

How can you, a sinner, be saved? How can you be saved from wickedness by your works? What can you do to wipe out your past? Nothing. What can you do to change your heart? Nothing. What can you do to please God? What can you do to satisfy Godís law? Nothing! So if you are going to be saved it has to be by grace; in other words, it has to start with God. God must do the saving.

God offers this salvation free of charge. You donít pay for it; you donít work for it. It is not by church or sacrament. It is by faith in Jesus Christ. This salvation is by grace alone; that is, it comes from God freely, because He loves us. It is in Christ alone because He purchased it by His death on the cross, and it is through faith alone. You receive Christ by faith, not by worksónot by effortóbut by trusting Him.

This is what Paul told the jailor in Philippi; ďbelieve on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be savedĒ (Acts 16:31). To believe is not merely to believe certain thing about Jesus, but to believe in Him, to commit oneself entirely to him in soul and obedience of life.
