O love! How high thy glory swell!
How great, immutable and free;
Ten thousand sins as black as hell,
Are swallowed up, O love, by thee.
"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
What a glorious thought! We did nothing to deserve or purchase His love for us, yet He chose to sacrifice His Son to save sinners... even me! His love doesn't change toward us, for He elected us before the foundation of the world! What, but daily conformity to Christ Jesus, obedience, adoration and praise, can we render to our God for all His kindness shown?!
