Necessary Perspective

In this age of evangelical narcissism, people often adopt the erroneous idea that Christ’s death on the cross somehow proves that human beings are deserving  of His sacrifice. “He died for us because  He saw something in us worth saving,” they insist.

Yet Scripture never assigns us any such intrinsic value. Rather, we come to the Lord with an acute awareness that we have absolutely nothing to offer Him. As a matter of fact, we find it quite perplexing that He would shed His precious blood on our behalf. Today’s hymn reminds me that each of us should marvel  at His inexplicable  grace.
