Into His Forgiving Arms


There is a song that has been on my mind and in my heart since yesterday. It speaks of the love of God which calls me from the darkness of sin in my life. God doesn't reach out to me in judgmental anger. He reaches out to me in love because He sees me through Jesus' gift of His life for me on Calvary. He calls me to die to the sin that keeps me trapped with no hope. His light, which lays bare the sin which separates me from His love, now beckons me with love into His marvelous presence. That sin, which He asks me to let go, is nothing compared to the freeing love of God which draws my heart. That sin has kept me in bondage, and now He beckons me to new life. He asks me to reach for Him instead of it. I reach for His hand, and He lifts me from the pit of my own destruction and despair. He is my life. He is the only way. Into His marvelous light I am running–straight into His forgiving arms.

I once was fatherless
A stranger with no hope
Your kindness wakened me
Awakened me, from my sleep


Your love it beckons deeply
A call to come and die
By grace now I will come


And take this life, take Your life
Sin has lost it's power
Death has lost it's sting
From the grave You've risen
Victoriously


Into marvelous light I'm running
Out of darkness, out of shame
By the cross You are the truth
You are the life, You are the way


My dead heart now is beating
My deepest stains now clean
Your breath fills up my lungs
Now I'm free, now I'm free


Sin has lost it's power
Death has lost it's sting
From the grave You've rise
n
Victoriously

Into marvelous light I'm running
Out of darkness, out of shame
By the cross You are the truth
You are the life, You are the way. (Chris Tomlin)

Now, most people would not be willing to die for an upright person, though someone might perhaps be willing to die for a person who is especially good. But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners” (Romans 5:7-8, NLT).

Thank you for allowing me to send you devotionals. If you wish to be removed from the list, please let me know.
