I love the grace of God! Knowing my wretchedness, I praise Him for shedding His precious blood to pay the penalty for my past, present and future sins. When I first heard the wonderful truth that Jesus died in my place, voluntarily taking the punishment that I deserve, I overflowed with joy!
At the same time, I instinctively understood that I suddenly belonged to Him. By being my Savior, Jesus Christ also established Himself as my Lord. And, by the power of His Holy Spirit, I gladly acknowledged His authority to take my life.
The hymn I feature today celebrities the Lord’s glorious claim on my life, as well as my acceptance of His claim. It prays for Him to use every part of me for His purposes and His glory. Is this hymn also your prayer?
