Christ is my Life

Colossians 3:4, “When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.” I thank God today for His grace – the desire and the power to do His will. It is all of grace. Recently, I was meditating on a song (see below) and thought of all the positions, titles, graces, and mercy I enjoy. Not because of anything I am, but everything He is, and has gifted me. I trust you will meditate today on some of these for yourself:

I Stand Redeemed
When I think of all my faults and all my failures,
When I consider all the times I’ve let God down,
I’m humbled by the grace He has extended,
I’m amazed at the mercy I have found;
I could never earn His love on my own,
Yet every time I come before His throne,
Chorus: I stand redeemed by the blood of the Lamb,
I stand redeemed before the great I Am,
When He looks at me, He sees the nail-scarred hands,
That bought my liberty, I stand redeemed
