Do you know what my problem is? It’s that part of me still thinks that, if I sin badly enough, I’ll prove that I’m not really saved. Part of me still wants to believe that I’m ultimately responsible for my salvation.
So hymns like the one I’m featuring today pull me back to sound doctrine, reminding me that Jesus purchased my salvation on the cross. Instead of looking at my sin and rebellion, I must gaze on Christ’s grace and mercy in redeeming me for Himself. What a joy to know that Jesus owns me, and that I need not fear condemnation. That’s a wonderful truth to believe!
