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!

70 THINGS I KNOW ON MY 70TH BIRTHDAY

November 17, 2021

There are many things God allows us to know in our brief life if we are listening. These are a few that God has reminded me of on my 70th birthday today. This is not intended to be a comprehensive theology or even all my best understandings about God. These are just thoughts that come to my mind in on this day about God, the wonders of His goodness to me, and how we must aggressively cooperate with Him. I would know nothing of value apart from Him. Nothing.
