How Great the Father’s Love for Us

Cross, Sunset, Holy Island, Northumberland

Every VeggieTales show ends with these words- remember, God made you special and He loves you very much.

I was thinking about that this morning, and I just said to myself several times, God loves me.  God loves me.  How often do we let that truth sink in and spread like a balm over every area of our life?

God- the creator of the universe, the great I AM, Alpha and Omega- He loves us.

He sent His Son to die for us.  Today, as we prepare for Palm Sunday and for Easter- I pray that we will take some time to ponder the love and sacrifice of our Savior.

Sometimes, just meditating on a song- singing it, listening to it, and letting the words soak in- worshiping God and remembering His Sacrifice- it gives me an opportunity to stop what I am doing and remember- and be thankful-for all that God has done.

How Great the Father’s Love for Us

How deep the Father’s love for us
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure

How great the pain of searing loss
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the Chosen One
Bring many sons to glory

Behold the man upon a cross
My sin upon His shoulders
Ashamed I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers

It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I know that it is finished

I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no power, no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection

Why should I gain from His reward
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom
