“Let me in ...” by Ria van Rensburg
To Him so sits on the Throne, and unto the Lamb, be blessing and honor and glory and power forever. Lord, I lay my crowns down. I feel so incredibly blessed by the Lord, that He freely gave me these songs from His very Throne Room.
I envision a delegation of Angels, assigned to write and compose songs, so we humans could bring proper honor to Gods’ Name. Though I know that it is impossible for any heavenly host to know the cleansing power and deliverance by the redemption of the Blood of Jesus Christ, they have seen the Face of God and know the grace we have through Jesus’ shed blood.
Angels cannot sing “Amazing Grace” but we can. How sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me. Grace taught my heart to fear God, and grace relieves me of my fears. No greater words were ever written in song.
It is just like God to unroll the scroll of the hymn “Amazing Grace” to a man called John Henry Newton, a slave ship captain in the 1700’s. He knew what bondage meant, and thus knew the meaning of freedom.
I too know the meaning of freedom and know it better today than the day I first gave my life to the Lord. I know freedom because I know intimacy with the Lord, and are pursuing its fullness day by day.
Through the songs on this CD, your Maker is inviting you to come into His presence where you will not only find healing, but freedom from bondage. God is standing at the door of your heart, asking, “Will you let me in?”. And this is your opportunity to boldly, without hesitation approach the Throne of Grace and say: “Lord, please let me in - to a deeper place with you”.
No religion, no religious ceremony, no theology or lethargy can ever reveal greater joy and peace, hope and deliverance, than just this one knowledge: intimacy with your Maker.
My prayer is that, as you listen to these songs, you would soak up His presence, find inner healing and come to a deeper understanding of this great grace, I find so amazing.
