"The key to understanding the Bible is to look for Jesus in the Bible. Jesus is the hero of the Bible. If you read the Bible and don't find Jesus, re-read it! The Bible has one hero, His name is Jesus; one villain, that is Satan; one problem, that is sin; one solution, that is salvation. That is what the Bible is all about." -Dr. Adrian Rogers

I'm Too Near Home (7/23/2010)

I downloaded this song by the Goodmans today. And, since I couldn't find a decent video that wasn't like a thousand years old, I thought I'd just post the lyrics below.

Verse 1:
I've been traveling here in this life, with it's heartaches, troubles, and strife;
Sometimes Satan tries to tell me to turn aside.
I say, "Satan, get thee behind, no returning in me you'll find,
I'm too near my heavenly home where I'll abide."

I'm too near home with my Lord, too near sweet Heaven's reward,
I'm not returning to sin, I've made my vow.
There's nothing to go back to, oh Praise God, Heaven's in view.
I'm too near my heavenly home and I'll not turn back now.

Verse 2:
There is joy in going this way, it gets sweeter everyday.
My dear Lord is leading the way to realms above.
He'll be with me until the end; Be my Savior, Guide and my Friend;
I'll arrive in Heaven my home of perfect love.

If you know the Lord Jesus and have been saved by the power of His redeeming blood, then this should be one of the songs of your life. I know this song is ancient and probably very rarely listened to nowadays; however, I love this song because absolutely nothing describes my walk with Him better than it.
