#WorshipWednesday – Praise the Lord in spirit and in truth.
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
– Romans 5:8 (NIV)
Today’s #WorshipWednesday song speaks of the rich and reckless love of God, that chases us down when we are lost and fights till we’re found. This beautiful love, given to us long before we even got the chance to love Him back in return. How beautiful, how reckless. God, not caring about whether we would ever appreciate Him, still chose to send His son to die for us, while we were yet sinners. This song draws from the parable below to create a beautiful story about God’s love:
Now the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear him. And the Pharisees and the scribes grumbled, saying, “This man receives sinners and eats with them.” So he told them this parable: “What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open country, and go after the one that is lost, until he finds it? And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep that was lost.’ Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.
Luke 15:1-7 [ESV]
Be blessed as you worship.
