Blake Gillihan: New Life Through God’s Grace

On Good Friday, Christians around the world reflect on the Crucifixion of Jesus, remembering how He took the punishment we deserved by dying on the cross. Even those who do not follow Jesus, are overwhelmed by the story of the Crucifixion ~ an innocent man’s sacrifice, giving his life for another. Blake Gillihan shares his story of how God used the words of a hymn “Before the Throne of God Above” written over 150 years ago to lead him to a new life in Christ.
