It’s one of the most amazing ideas known to man – that God, who is rich in mercy, would make you and me alive with Christ even when we were without life (dead) because of our sin. It is by His grace, and His grace alone, that He would even want to reach down to make it possible for us to be forgiven and be reconciled to Him. “Amazing love. How can it be that thou, my God, would die for me?” Jesus, thank you for coming into my life and making me whole and clean and giving me new life through your death, through the shedding of your blood. I humble bow in gratitude and submission to You this day.
