After getting slightly snappy at my sister, I was convicted and went down to my room to spend time in prayer and God's word. I turned on the 'worship' playlist on my ipod, and the first song that came on was, 'Alas! And did my Savior bleed?' Wow.
In light of how much Christ has done for us, when we are so undeserving, how can we be anything but humbled, amazed and overwhelmingly filled with a desire to serve and seek God?
Is your heart right with God today? He has done SO much for us, we are undeserving sinners. That's MORE than enough reason to make every effort to live for Him, seek Him, let His light shine through you.
Alas! and did my Savior bleed, and did my Sovereign die! Would he devote that sacred head for sinners such as I? Was it for crimes that I have done, he groaned upon the tree? Amazing pity! Grace unknown! And love beyond degree! Well might the sun in darkness hide, and shut its glories in, when God, the mighty maker, died for his own creature's sin. Thus might I hide my blushing face while his dear cross appears; dissolve my heart in thankfulness, and melt mine eyes to tears. But drops of tears can ne'er repay the debt of love I owe. Here, Lord, I give myself away; 'tis all that I can do.
