Keith and Kristyn Getty are giving away three free downloads of hymns they have written. The three free hymns are: Behold the Lamb (Communion Hymn), The Power of the Cross, and Come, People of the Risen King.
I can’t wait to hear them at the upcoming Gospel Coalition Conference in Chicago.

…to show the listener his wretchedness before Almighty God and to show the listener the wonderful sufficiency of Jesus Christ as his only Savior.
I do not remember the source, but I heard it once said that for many people the problem is not showing them Jesus as Savior but showing them of their own condemnation because of their sin, and thus their need for a Savior.
