What a difference The Cross makes…
Where forgiveness begins!
What a difference just knowing
Jesus paid for our sins!
What a difference the Blood makes…
Perpetual soul cleansing power!
What a difference to claim it
In that last final hour!
What a difference the Church makes…
Such a world reaching wonder!
What a difference to know she'll
Never be cast asunder!
What a difference The Word makes
When the storms of life rage!
What a difference just standing
On each promise filled page!
What a difference a Prayer makes…
Changes all circumstances!
What a difference to watch as
Every answer advances!
What a difference God’s Grace makes…
Such unmerited favor!
What a difference believing
In a God who won't waver!
What a difference the Christ makes…
First on Heaven's roll call.
O, what a difference He's making...
The greatest difference of all!

A superficial reading of the gospel narratives concerning
the death of Jesus will show that He was nailed to the cross
at 9 o'clock in the morning, and was dead by 3 in the
afternoon. His terrible ordeal, it would seem, was over
in a mere six hours. But what a difference those
six hours made...forever securing mankind's entrance
into Eternity and God's Heaven.
Ephesians 1:7 In whom we have redemption through hisblood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;
He is before all things, and in him all things hold together
. And he is the head of the body, the church;
he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead,
so that in everything he might have the supremacy. For God
was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through
him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth
or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood,
shed on the cross.
Romans 5:1-2 Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God
through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained
access by faith into thisgrace in which we stand, and we rejoice
in hope of the glory of God.
