It is the most expensive 'thing' in this life, yet it is freely availed to each of us. Why?
Some of us have grabbed hold of it and cling to it with our lives...others turn their backs on it, even cursing it. Again, why?
But I would cry out
"I'm blessed, oh Lord, amongst all men,
far above them all!
Blessed, Lord, in that You, upon
my life, have placed Your Call.
Blessed in that I hear from You
whenever I seek Your face;
Blessed because of just one thing:
YOU SAVED ME BY YOUR GRACE!
I am not blessed because this man
is worthy of it all.
If I thought that, this human world
would surely see me fall!
And I'm not blessed because of
pious rituals I've done;
for there is only One Way:
the One begotten Son!
I'm blessed, oh Lord, in this alone:
the blood of Calvary's Lamb.
I have claimed it in my life
so born again I am!
Far above all others only
in how I must live,
that, by my life, they may desire
what Your love can give!"
It is a by-product of God's love. God paid the highest price to demonstrate His love for us.
Will you grab hold of it?
