The Wonder of God

Today, I caught a taste of the amazing feeling it is to be a sinner saved by grace. Today I was able to share with some friends about some of the very things that I had so many times hurt my Savior with. But isn’t our God so much like that? He was under no obligation to redeem us. He had no one telling Him to do so. “But God demonstrated His own love towards us, that while we were still sinners – Christ died for us.” “And when we were dead in trespasses, and in the deadness of our flesh, He made us alive with Him and forgave us all our trespasses. He erased the certificate of debt, with its obligations, that was against us and opposed to us, and has taken it out of the way by nailing it to the cross. Isn’t that amazing?! I have heard that verse probably thousands of times, but have only recently come to love it. Only in these last few months have I learned what loving God really is, and how much greater the words of Scripture I’ve known mean now that they are being written in my heart. And you know the greater thing still? Not only did He save us from our sin, but He has called us, He has chosen us, to carry the Message of Him – of His life, death, and resurrection to the world in which we were saved from! How amazing that God would entrust to us this message of life! Let us never lose the wonder of who God is!
