On Thursday’s I like to do several meme’s, Simple Pleasures at “ A Collection of This and That” and “Thankful Thursday”. I posted my Simple Pleasure a bit earlier (see post below), so now I will focus on my Thankful Thursday.
You know there are many things to be thankful for each given day if only we look for them, and sometimes we don’t have look very far. This week, I have been pondering God’s amazing love for us. It is beyond anything I can ever articulate or fathom. But it leads me to the thing that I am grateful for today and that is the gift of eternal life. Thank you sweet Jesus for loving me so much that you went to the cross to die for me and my sins. It’s simply amazing to know that I am loved that much.
Jesus Paid My Debt
Jesus paid a debt I owed
A debt I could not pay
It was only by his merciful grace
that for me there was a way
I was born a sinner
inherited from Adam and Eve
The only way to have my debt paid was
to believe on Jesus and him receive
He came to pay for our sins
at such an awful cost
They put a crown of thorns on his head
and nailed him to the cross
When he was dying in agony
people watched him and did stare
Some said "He saved others
why don't He just come down from there"
But Jesus had to stay upon
the cruel cross you see
For he was hanging there
suffering for you and me
He had to stay on the cross
for our sins to pay
Then he cried "It is finished"
the debt paid in full that day
Romans 6:23 - For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
