God's Word

How Marvelous! How Wonderful!

“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!!
