On my heart today....

Sin, forgiveness, redemption....a pure heart....all on my heart today.

"I need thee, precious Jesus, for I am full of sin. My soul is dark and guilty, my heart is dead within. I need the cleansing fountain where I can always flee, the blood of Christ most precious, the sinner's perfect plea."

"Jesus! What a strength in weakness! Let me hide myself in Him; tempted, tried and sometimes failing, he my strength, my victory wins. Hallelujah! What a Saviour! Hallelujah! What a friend! Saving, helping, keeping, loving, He is with me to the end!"

"I am trusting thee for pardon; at they feet I bow, for they grace and tender mercy, trusting now."

"We will never fully appeciate what a deep and awesome thing conversion is until we own up to the fact that it is a miracle. It is a gft of God...we not only sin, but we are sinful- blind, hard, dead, unable to submit to the law of God. And so when we hear the gospel, we will never respond positively unless God performs the miracle of redemption." (John Piper)

"For it is by grce you have been saved, through faith- and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God- not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God's workmanship created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." Ephesians 2:5

"....let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our harts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. " Hebrews 10:18

What a mighty God we serve! One who holds out free, cleansing grace. One who rejoices in our repentance and seeks only the redemption of our hearts and purity of our lives. One who searches after us, pursues us at all costs and to every end. One whose blood can cover our sins, and immediately make a heart bound by sin pure....in an instant!

What a mighty, gracious, forgiving, patient and joyful God we serve!
