The sweet love of the Lord washes over me in a thousand different ways. As I consider this mercy - so lavish, yet so free - my heart is filled with a gratefulness I cannot express with mere words. The King of Glory has rescued me, forgiven me, adopted me. Why? Not because of anything I have done or even could ever do ... on my own I am as corrupt as the worst sinner. But now the righteousness of Christ is mine. Not only am I forgiven, but I can experience friendship with my Savior. He calls me in and welcomes me - even when I do not come, he gently draws me, reminding me that I can find this love, fellowship, joy, and peace nowhere else. Lover of my soul, I want to live for you!
