How do you explain what Grace is? The word Grace is almost as definitive as the word Earth. How would you explain to someone what all is involved in the word Earth? A word in an exhaustive list that points out one facet of Grace is Adoption.
This song by Hillsong Worship points to one of the things Adoption allows us to believe.
I am who you say I am.
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For you have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption by which we cry, Abba, Father! The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are the children of God.
(Romans 8:14-16 MKJV)
I remember as a child the song “Just as I am”. The day I headed forward to the altar was the day I realized that no matter what had happened to me, God Loved me as I was at the time.
I know that sometimes it’s not so easy to feel worthy of all the good things that the Bible says God has to offer. Just remember this. God knew you before you were formed and he sent His son to die for you so that you might live.
I LOVE this song. Whatever you have going on in your life. Take a moment and let the Father love on you during this song. And as always… Come as you are.
Sometimes it takes a real Father to be a Daddy. Thanks to all the men out there not afraid to raise up Godly children.
Wow this song takes me back. My Dad had a belt and he only had to use it once or twice. That was enough for me. How about you? Much easier to follow the words of the Bible than the words of the world and less painful..lol.
