Authentic Gospel - I
I feel like many times, we are:
burdened with many tasks
angst with many dead lines
troubled by difficulty in relationships
stressed because of circumstances that are not going my way
and the list could go on...
but then, this morning, I realize once again,
that I was once enslaved to sin and darkness,
doomed to death and wrath,
that I was totally lost and blind...
Yet, even when I was a sinner as an enemy of God,
HE LOVED ME and gave His life for me.
Therefore, my life is no longer mine,
and that's why I don't need things my way anymore.
Therefore, I can relax, surrender all things to Him,
"Let Your will be done, LORD.
My life and all that I have is Yours.
I LET GO.
Have Your way in me and through me."
PEACE. REST. LOVE. JOY.
And if I've been foolishly getting involved in sin,
then I am simply reminded that this is why Christ came,
So just get up, washed in His blood,
cling closer to the cross of Jesus,
sin no more and bring praise to Him. (John 8:11)
Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
that saved a wretch like me,
I once was lost, but now I'm found,
was blind, but now I see.
My chains are gone, I've been set free,
my God my Savior has ransomed me,
and like a flood, His mercy reigns,
unending love, amazing grace.
Praying for y'all this morning,
that you may be COVERED with His grace and love,
living out of a heart of gratitude, rest, and assurance.
May the Glorious Gospel ooze out of us today.
