Wonderful Obligation

When I first understood the Gospel, I did so because the Lord opened my eyes. What faithfulness on His part to expose my rebellious heart and then to exchange my sinfulness for His righteousness!

I had only one response to such magnanimous grace. I knew that, because Jesus gave His life for me, I had to live for Him. I regret to say that I far too often forget this wonderful obligation to Him. Thankfully, He always reminds me of that glorious day, not quite 46 years ago, when He brought me to Himself and claimed authority over every aspect of my life. Today, He used a contemporary hymn to bring me back  to the basic truth that I owe everything to Him.
