You ask me why… Image by StuartMiles


You ask me why I LOVE Him
That’s not so hard to tell…
He gave me life forever
He saved my soul from hell.

You ask me why I TRUST Him
That’s not so hard to see…
He shows Himself so faithful
Fills every need in me.

You ask me why I PRAISE Him
I have the answer why…
He came to earth, He lived and died
My debt to satisfy.

He was wounded…


…for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed. ~Isaiah 53:5

Lord, Your Word tells us that You were wounded for our transgressions, You were bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon You, and by Your stripes, we are healed.

Help us to comprehend the depth and magnitude of this love, which we cannot repay — incomprehensible,  infinitely generous, and unceasingly merciful!

May we also receive it!
