Marvelous Grace

Marvelous grace of our loving Lord,
grace that exceeds our sin and our guilt,
yonder on Calvary's mount out-poured,
there where the blood of the Lamb was spilt.

Grace, grace, God's grace,
grace that will pardon and cleanse within;
grace, grace, God's grace,
grace that is greater than all our sin.

Dark is the stain that we cannot hide,
what can avail to wash it away!
Look! there is flowing a crimson tide;
whiter than snow you may be today.

Marvelous, infinite, matchless grace,
freely bestowed on all who believe;
you that are longing to see his face,
will you this moment his grace receive?

A Woman's Walk with God

I recently finished reading A Woman's Walk with God by Elizabeth George.
Here are some quotes that stood out to me.

"Love, joy, and peace are godly attitudes that enable us to handle the difficult circumstances of life. Patience, kindness, and goodness help us in our relationships with difficult people."
(page 79, Kindle Edition)

"Kindness means making life easier for others— not harder— just as Jesus makes your life and mine easier."
(page 98, Kindle Edition)

"Moses took it— and took it to God, appealing to God and waiting on Him to come to his rescue in these unjustified attacks."
(page 162, Kindle Edition)

Knowing God's Love

As we grow in grace, as we draw nearer to God, we become more aware of our need for Him. Thus, our love grows. And our desire to sin lessens. "But our sinning is not about how much harder we try. It's about our relationship with our Father and His Son." (Kelly Minter, What Love Is, page 89)

As we know God more, our love for Him grows. And our love for others grows. "We can't separate loving others from our belief in Jesus. Both are intertwined. Our confession of Him will lead to action, and true love in action will result from our knowing Him. Belief without love can make you a Pharisee. Love without belief can make you a humanitarian. But if you have both, you're a child of God." (Kelly Minter, What Love Is, page 103)

We exist here, but here is not everything, and we should live in light of that. We've been touched by the eternal; therefore, the temporal has lost its sparkle. We have tasted better.

Out of the grace I have known flows the grace I show others. As I love others, I become a manifestation of God in their lives. Love the unlovely.

"Loving like Jesus loved means I'll sacrifice my personal comforts for another, I'll take on a friend's burden, forgive someone who betrayed me, feed a stranger, hold an orphan with a contagious bug, give my money away, pursue the person on the fringes of society - the one whose worldview and behavior are entirely different from mine." (Kelly Minter, What Love Is, page 118)

O, Love Divine

O, Love Divine, amazing love,
That brought to earth from Heaven above,
The Son of God for us to die,
That we might dwell on high.

He died for you, He died for me,
He shed His blood to make us free
Upon the cross of Calvary.
The Savior died for me.

For us a crown of thorns He wore,
For us a robe of scorn He bore,
He conquered death and raised the grave,
And lives again our souls to save.

O, Wanderer, come I bid believe,
His grace by faith receive,
Awake our eyes and hear His call,
The feast is spread for all.

O, Love Divine by Fanny Crosby
