Amazing Grace

Sunday, April 10, 2011

Tonight as I write this I am listening to "Your Grace Still Amazes Me" by Phillips Craig and Dean. I am reminded again of how amazing His grace truly is. It's something that I don't stop being in awe about. Yes I get distracted; yes I sometimes lose focus. But when I come before the Throne and realize anew that HE has saved me....and not because of anything I've done...well, it's just incredible.

To think that God would save me, who was (and still is!) a most wretched sinner, is so remarkable. To think that He reached down and grabbed me as His own when I was without hope is truly a wonderous thought.

Overwhelming. Completely unfathomable.

And so amazing!! Can I say it again? I am IN LOVE! With my Savior! I had nothing to give God, I was a sinner in a pit of misery. And yet He still gave His life for me. He still died for me - faced the wrath of God which was intended for me.

"But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us."

Romans 5:8

While I was still hatefully wicked, Christ died for me. Took the death sentence on Himself that should have been mine. And then rose again to prove His victory over sin and death!

Easter is just a few short weeks away...I'd like to encourage all of you to take this time leading up to Easter to sanctify God in your hearts. Don't just attend an Easter service.....make it meaningful. For you. Get out your Bible and read through the Easter story - remember anew the Huge sacrifice Christ made for you! Think about it. Meditate on His unfailing love. And remember how undeserving you are. Remember, if you fail to realize that it was nothing you did to receive God's amazing grace, well, the grace isn't amazing! It is a gift. That needs to be remembered.

It's not about us.

It's about Him.
