For years I’ve sung songs like “there is a fountain filled with blood drawn from Immanuel’s veins. And sinners plunged beneath that flood lose all their guilty stains.” I’ve meditated on this verse: “The dying thief rejoiced to see that fountain in his day. And there may I, though vile as he, wash all my sins away.”
Sunday we heard these words:
I’m no longer a slave to fear
I am a child of God.
From my mother’s womb
You have chosen me
Love has called my name.
I’ve been born again
Into your family
Your blood flows through my veins.
I have believed this for years. However, I’ve discovered that it’s one thing to believe this theologically, it’s another to believe it experientially–to actually incorporate this into my daily thinking.
Last night, at family devotions, we watched this video. I seldom share videos but it’s worth ten minutes. If you belong to Christ, this is your life in Christ. (I’m crying as I type this).
Watch. Be grateful. Share your thoughts on Facebook or on the blog. Encourage one another. Revel in his grace today.
