Psalm 103:10 “HE does not deal with us according to our sins, nor repay us according to our iniquities!”
Our Unmerited Key!
Since each is a sinner with stains
With “rap sheets” found
added to — daily
so the thoughts of one’s
freedom escapes us…
because those intentions of Self
— we know best.
Why then would the LORD die
for me…WHO knows every heart
Why sincerely with love would HE shed HIS own blood for someone whose errors — unending?
So HIS answer — our logic — defies;
“You were MINE before Time I began.
So there to MY cross were your
Every one of them paid for in full
as I planned.”
Then! For us, what transport — divine
as the old song reminds us with Joy.
For our sins gave HE life
as eternity’s price…
Gladly given so we — by HIS stripes — could come in!
As HIServant with Salvation’s Key which HE placed in my heart,
Devotional: Ephesians 2:8 “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of GOD…”
If we truly knew in great detail what awaits us on the other side of the veil, we’d act different.
We wouldn’t be fault-finders, or so judgmental, or “here focused” if the Hope of Heaven had already come for us in the Rapture.
Still! We must live daily with that pending truth in the very forefront of our minds!
For the gift of eternal life And the unmerited key to be rescued from prison was given to us by our FATHER!
Of course, with the love which only our Heavenly FATHER has, HE lifted HIS own out of the prison we were in!
Esther 5:2a “And when the king saw Queen Esther standing in the court, she won favor in his sight, and he held out to Esther the golden scepter that was in his hand.”
So HE extends HIS scepter to us, HIS sons and daughters, to live in eager expectation of coming Home!
Amen and amen!
