“…O Lord, I am astonished at the difference between my receivings and my deservings, betwen the state I am now in and my past gracelessness, between the heaven I am bound for and the hell I merit.
Who made me to differ, but thee? for I was no more ready to receive Christ than were others; I could not have begun to love thee hadst thou not first loved me, or been willing unless thou hadst first made me so. O that such a crown should fit the head of such a sinner! such high advancement be for an unfruitful person! such joys for so vile a rebel!” From The Valley of Vision excerpt pgs.12-13
O God of much mercy, compassion and love; thank You for saving a sinner like me! Thank You for making me Your own.
I’ve been saved from Your wrath; from the fires of hell.
I’ve been given the gift of repentance. I’ve been justified. I have been saved through the precious blood of the unblemished Passover Lamb, my Jesus Christ; the one who died for my sins. I continue to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ; not because I am brilliant (far from that!) but because of the Lord who continues to sanctify me and mold me into what I am to be for Him.
You are the Potter, Lord, and I am Your clay to do with whatever You see fit to do with me.
To You my precious Lord be all the glory!
