Praise the LORD!
It’s week 4 of our Blogging Thru the Book and we’re still working our way through The Gospel of Yes by Mike Glenn. This week, chapters 6 & 7. I couldn’t get past this…
For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ.
And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God.
Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ.
He anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us,
and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.
2 Corinthians 1:20-22
This… this… is where I stop and fall flat on my face. And, this is where I stand and raise my hands high. This breaks my heart and binds it together all at the same time. This… Jesus Christ loves me as I am. I can do NOTHING to earn that, His love finds me right where I am wallowing in the mire. He finds me there and loves me enough to not leave me there.
Because the promises God made for a way of redemption became my YES on the cross. When I accepted that yes, He placed His seal of ownership on me…. and, as if that were not enough… He put His Spirit in my heart as a deposit that guarantees what is to come.
HE DID THIS FOR ME!
He moves me out of the mire and I stand firm in Him. And, all I can do is fall flat on my face and stand and raise my hands up high to worship a God that loves me that much.
Today I marvel at His love for me. I know that I could outline Mike Glenn’s two chapters or debate his finer points. In the scope of the fact that in Jesus all God’s promises become my YES, there isn’t much more to say. Other than, I am in awe of a God that loves me this much!
He blows my mind!
