The Stunning Kindness of our Great God

August 18, 2014

Why should I doubt my Master's love

When He has saved me through His blood;

The riches of salvation given,

Withholding nothing, even heaven?

 

""Come take of my forgiveness now,""

The Kind One said and humbly bowed

Beneath the cross that brought Him shame

So I could know His matchless Name.

 

And then, He came to live within,

Erasing and forgiving sin;

And making me His wealthy heir

So all He has I now can share.

 

Forgive me, Lord, for senseless thoughts

That question you, when you have brought

Me every kindness I have known;

I worship now here before Your throne!

How do you see yourself? A mature man has come to the humble knowledge that he is nothing without Christ and everything with Christ. He is a mere branch on a glorious Vine, but he has been fearfully and wonderfully and uniquely made by the Creator, designed for great achievements by God’s grace. This wise balance allows him to live powerfully, but dependently in life.
