GRACE

maxresdefault

Just as I am, without one plea
But that Thy blood was shed for me
And that Thou bidd’st me come to Thee,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

Just as I am, Thou wilt receive,
Wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve;
Because Thy promise I believe,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

I love singing this hymn, not only because of the beautiful harmony and sound of the music, but because it really says everything. I can come to God as I am – a sinner without worthiness, knowing that I am forgiven.

If I were to appear before God as I really am, filled with sin and an appearance that would disgust anyone in this world, I wouldn’t have a chance at salvation. It’s because of the fact that my savior willingly sacrificed His life for me, that  I can stand before my God confident that my ransom has been paid in full. Not by what I have done to earn that forgiveness, but because of the price paid by my Lord.

In addition to that, He rose from the grave, defeating death and the devil so that I can also live on, even after my death.

Jesus, thank you for your grace, for your love and your final sacrifice.  No longer am I unworthy in your sight.  Help me to stay strong in your teachings and your ways.  Make your Word the center of my life and give me the solid peace that I am forgiven.  Amen.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

    I won’t ever forget that Hymn myself. That was the song played during the invitation when I was save. Took every verse until I let go of the pew, too.
