FOR WHAT EARTHLY REASON....

"You are right in saying I am a king. In fact, for this reason I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me." - John 18:37

For to this end Christ died and lived [again], that he might be Lord of both the dead and the living. - Romans 14:9

For this reason he had to be made like his brothers in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people. - Hebrews 2:17

For this reason Christ is the mediator of a new covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance--now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant. - Hebrews 9:15

The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil's work. - 1 John 3:8

For What Earthly Reason
Dottie Rambo. New Kingdom Music/ASCAP

Vs 1
For what earthly reason would the Heavenly Father send down His Son
To suffer rejection and pay for crimes He had not done
For what earthly reason would the Father let Him hang on a tree
I wept with the answer, that one earthly reason was me

Chorus
I was the reason, that one earthly reason
I was the guilty, He was the sacrifice
I was the taker, He was the giver
Dying while I go free, that one earthly reason was me

Vs 2
The fairest of angels were not summoned from the throne up in the sky
To purchase my pardon, not even the angels could die
The only provision for my freedom was destined to be
The sweet Lamb of Glory and His only reason was me
