I love singing! Even as a child I could be found humming or all out singing everywhere I went. As an adult, I realized it is a bit more “adult like” to simply whistle. A song I have found myself singing and whistling often is Grace Greater than our Sin. The words say:
Verse 1: “Marvelous grace of our loving Lord, Grace that exceeds our sin and our guilt! Yonder on Calvary’s mount outpoured, There where the blood of the Lamb was spilled.”
Chorus: “Grace, grace, God’s grace, Grace that will pardon and cleanse within; Grace, grace, God’s grace, Grace that is greater than all our sin!”
Verse 3 says: “Dark is the stain that we cannot hide; What can we do to wash it away? Look! There is flowing a crimson tide, Brighter than snow you may be today.”
Wow, what grace! Ephesians 2 points out that it is God’s free gift of grace that sent His Son to the cross and provides us salvation. Paul reminds us in 2 Corinthians 12 that God offers us His grace which will be sufficient for all our needs. Romans 6 cheers us that Christians are no longer slaves to sin because we have been given God’s grace!
As you read through Scripture, you can’t help but notice the grace that God bestows on us each and every day. But I have to ask, is God’s grace being evidenced through your life? When was the last time you thanked God for the grace He has given and continues to give you? What does God’s grace really mean to you?
Verse 4 says this: “Marvelous, infinite, matchless grace, Freely bestowed on all who believe! You that are longing to see His face, Will you this moment His grace receive?”
Maybe you have never received God’s gracious gift of salvation? 2 Corinthians 6:2 tells us that today is the day of salvation. Today you can personally know God’s grace in and through your life! Would you simply accept Him today and allow Him to give you a new life?
Truly His grace is greater than all our sin!
