How Great Thou Art

Today in church we sang the hymn, 'How Great Thou Art'. I absolutely love the 3rd stanza. What a beautiful reminder of God's ridiculous love for sinners. The Father so loved us that He gave His one and only Son to be the propitiation for our sins. The Son so loved us that He gladly and joyfully carried the cross for our redemption. The only way to react to this amazing truth is to worship in humble adoration. God is great!

"And when I think, that God, His Son not sparing;
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in;
That on the Cross, my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin."

"If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all-how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?"----Romans 8:31-32

"For the joy set before him, he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God" ---Hebrews 12:2
