Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously: Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.”
1 Peter 2:21-24
I had the great pleasure of witnessing my sister’s baptism this morning. Praising the Lord for this day and the fact that “God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed.
I have already come;
‘Tis Grace that brought me safe thus far
and Grace will lead me home.
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.
Bright shining as the sun.
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’ve first begun.
“For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39
