Come, We that Love the Lord
O Jesus, We Adore Thee
Breathe on Me, breath of God
There is a fountain Filled with Blood
O Love that Wilt Not let me Go
God Be with you till We Meet Again
Laud and Honour to the Father
Ungodly in myself
By nature I reject God
Dead in my sin
Have a weakness within
That even though God has left more than sufficient proof of who God is, we reject that for our own thoughts
Our natural tendency is to turn to what is wrong
Rebels to God's throne
The more we understand that, the more it makes God's love for us incomprehensible.
While we were still sinners Christ died for us.
People won't do this, we won't die for someone unless they have some intrinsic value to us, and even then it is hard.
God's love surpasses this. He doesn't look at our worth. He just sees us, even in our sin, and laid down his life for us.
God died this at the right time. Not a time of our choosing but of his knowing, allowing his son to die for us.
Since God did this
- How much more will we be saved
- How much more will we rejoice
- How much more will be reconciled
Everything has been changed
We are no longer his enemies
So it is a small thing for God to hold onto him now that we love him and trust him.
Before we were nothing, now we are beloved children, so nothing can take us away from him.
God gives us rules for our own good. And once we know God we understand this. This gives us another reason to exalt in him.
Turn to him. See that great love he has for us.
See that we aren't worthy, but Christ still died for us.
Be amazed by God's love, it is steadfast and unfailing.
Not forced or beholden, but given freely while still an enemy, but now that we are his is all the more fierce.
Be astounded by God's love. Be totally astounded.
