Does He Amaze You?

He does me.

I am speaking of my Heavenly Father.

I sin so much. Day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute.

Yet, Christ died for me.

I am going to be honest.

If someone kept hurting me over and over, time and time again, It would be hard for me to care and love them.

But He loves me.

It is MY sin that put Christ on the cross. To be beaten, spit upon, mocked.

Yet He forgives me.

He intercedes for me.


I don't deserve this kind of love.

Isn't Christ amazing?

I am in awe of His unfailing love to me. In spite of my self.

He tells me in His Word,He "carries me under His wings" (Ps. 91;4).

I don't deserve this.

But it is not about me.

It is about Christ and His glory.

Among the gods there is none like You, O Lord;
Nor are there any works like Your works.
I will praise You, O Lord my God, with all my heart,
And I will glorify Your name forevermore.
For great is Your mercy toward me,
You have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.
(Psalms 86:8;12-13)

Thank you, my Lord, for your mercy and grace. I deserve to go to hell, but you chose to save me.

I am in awe of You.

To YOU be the glory forever and ever!!!!!!
