“I stand amazed in the presence
of Jesus the Nazarene,
and wonder how he could love me,
a sinner, condemned unclean.
How marvelous! How wonderful!
and my song shall ever be;
How marvelous! How wonderful!
is my Savior’s love to me!”  Charles H. Gabriel~~hymnwriter

Reading Ephesians 2:1-10 this morning I was taken back to the day God found me and rescued me.  I was

  • dead in my sin
  • walking with the powers of darkness
  • living away from God and a slave to sin
  • at the mercy of myself and my sinful desires
  • without Christ

BUT GOD…love those two words…who is rich in mercy, because of His great love made me alive. (Ephesians 2:4) I didn’t go looking for love and mercy, He found me and rescued me when I was a sinner. Not when I cleaned myself up and started living a righteous life, but God made me alive, raised me up and seated me with Christ when I was a slave to sin.

Today I am thanking and praising God for His mercy, giving me salvation when I didn’t deserve it and grace, saving me from what I did deserve.

What Love!!
