Luke 4:18, James 4:6,Titus 2:1, Ephesians 1:7, Ephesians 2:8
The beauty of the Gospel is what we discover when, broken by sin, we turn from the darkness of our own way to the light of Jesus Christ. We don’t find a God of indifference who cares nothing about us, but a God of compassion and tender mercy; we don’t find a God who is distant, unable to reach us because of His holiness, but a God who has totally identified Himself with our need; we don’t find a God of wrath who must be appeased, but a God who extends His grace and forgiveness to us freely.
I marvel at Your Grace. There is nothing I have done for You, yet You have done everyting for me. I come to You broken, knowing You can make me whole...I come to You empty, knowing You can make me full...I come to You bound, knowing You can set me free. I come as a child in simplicity of faith, and receive Your free gift of grace. Pour Your generosity upon me and make me whole.
