Fathomless oceans of love, for which there are no shores, pursues you relentlessly; a limitless love, a boundless love, an outrageous love, a prodigal love to sink in!
How great is the Love the Father has lavished upon us, that we should be called the children of God...1John 3:1
Therefore, I do not treat God's gracious gift as something of minor importance and defeat its very purpose; I do not set aside and invalidate and frustrate and nullify the grace of God. For if justification, righteousness, acquittal from guilt, comes through observing the ritual of the Law, then Christ, the Messiah, died groundlessly and to no purpose and in vain. His death was then wholly superfluous...Galatians 2:21
So, if grace is just God's unmerited favor, it seems we cannot fall from it; for we surely cannot earn it. I find that grace is more God's ability, in and through me, infusing me with His love and strength, that I simply come to enJoy through childlikeness, a heart of humility!
In putting everything under their feet, God left nothing that is not subject to them. Yet at present we do not see everything subject to them.
But we do see Jesus, who was made lower than the angels for a little while, now crowned with glory and honor because he suffered death, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone.
In bringing many sons and daughters to glory, it was fitting that God, for whom and through whom everything exists, should make the pioneer of their salvation perfect through what He suffered. Both the one who makes people holy and those who are made holy are of the same family.
So Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers and sisters...Hebrews 2:8-11
Glorious, simply glorious....brilliant, simply brilliant!
The King has come and we carry His Glory within these earthen vessels, for all the world to see! The Spirit of the Lord is upon us and He has anointed us to set the captives free, seeing them recover and healed. We are His children and the work of His hands, and exist because of Him; we have been given a precious treasure to carry into all the world.
Isaiah 61:1, Matthew 5:15, Luke 4:18, Luke 11:36,
Acts 17:28, 2 Corinthians 4:7, 1John 4:17
I Was There
Upon my back a King did ride,
With palms upon our path.
I carried Him, my will aside
To face their faithless wrath.
I stood afar to watch the scene
A God, A King, A Man.
Who walked His path with face serene,
Fulfilling Father's plan.
With love and joy submitted, He
A willing sacrifice.
That the Father's sons you might be,
Because He paid the price.
A lowly ass though I may be,
My part I served with pride.
I bore the one who set you free,
He came, He saved and died.
But death it has no lasting sting,
In truth the Savior lives.
Beloved Son and Heavenly King,
To Him all praises give.

This Blood's For You ~ This Love's For You!
Reflecting on Love, beyond comprehension,
Absolute, perfect Love, gave me redemption.
I deserve to be punished and even to die,
Yet I'm passed over for blood that does not lie.
This blood is for me and this blood is for you,
Accept the price He paid, making all things new!
By Deborah Fisher
Father, thank you for loving me so much, that you sent your only Son, who you deeply love, to rescue me, purchasing my freedom. And though you knew the final outcome of resurrection, you endured the severe pain, suffering and rejection, along with Your Son.
Father, You observed innocence, become guilt and shame instead; so that I can now approach you as if I am innocent because of the actions of Jesus!
I am truly grateful to you Jesus for enduring such abuse for me and I am overwhelmed with your goodness and your strength!
I accept and receive this love into my heart; and I am swallowed up in your love for me!
Thank you for this gracious gift and for reconciling me to Father; paying the debt I could not pay; restoring all things back to Father's original intent. You made the way for us to be a family once again!
