Lord’s Day 03/21 every blessing

It’s such a blessing to be able to worship God and be together with His people on the Lord’s Day. Every blessing is from Him and because of Him. It’s amazing that Jesus seeks and saves undeserving sinners like me.

No matter how hard I tried to pay Him back, if I did try, I would still die owing Him a debt. How thankful I am that I don’t have to pay Him back. I’m reminded of a couple of stanza’s of Ro­bert Ro­bin­son’s Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing. The “prone to wander” verse makes me especially thankful.

Jesus sought me when a stranger,
Wandering from the fold of God;
He, to rescue me from danger,
Interposed His precious blood;
How His kindness yet pursues me
Mortal tongue can never tell,
Clothed in flesh, till death shall loose me
I cannot proclaim it well.

O to grace how great a debtor
Daily I’m constrained to be!
Let Thy goodness, like a fetter,
Bind my wandering heart to Thee.
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love;
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it,
Seal it for Thy courts above.
