A soul kept alive in God   Leave a comment

A soul kept alive in God, and for Him, amid sin’s, Satan’s, and the world’s heart-killing influence –is a miracle of omnipotent grace!

This is the miracle of wonder, that God who is Holy and Pure, should endure with one soul and lead it into glory. The thing angels long to look into as to why such a Holy awesome God, One who speaks and creates, One who lives in radiant light,should forbear with the sin of many. What amazing grace is this?!

This grace that causes the vile to be made pure, the base to become righteous. What kind of Love is this to take a unholy thing and make it clean and pure.
It is amazing to be sure, amazing and a wonder to see, that the Lord who lives in Glory would pay such a price for you and me.

Christ, killed by God, to atone for our sins. Who can think such a thing can be? Luther exclaimed at this “God forsaken of God how can this be!!”The Blessed one, lay down His life for you and me.
What’s to be said and done ? No thing can be added to this wondrous sacrifice. No moral rule or pious prayers, only a humble word of thanks, and a life repentant and atonened for must live in the light of Truth and Justice, Love and Purity..

What wondrous thing is this. Christ who died for our sins, now prays for us. The giver and the gift is one, the means and end the same. A soul kept alive in God, and for Him, amid sin’s, Satan’s, and the world’s heart-killing influence –is a miracle of omnipotent grace!
