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!

Do not give in! Stand strong and firm following Christ into the new ways and lands He has taken you. The lands that were gained by faith.

WATCHING OVER OUR CHILDREN AS THEY WATCH THE WORLD

Like a frog in growing hot water, we become de-sensitized to the immorality and the pervasive philosophy of the world around us. Parents increasingly compromise with their children and bow to the "everybody-is-doing-it" complaints. We will never be perfect as parents, but if we sow moral compromise, we will often reap moral confusion.
