To Him Who Loves Us

 

 I was late for the church service this morning.

Not incredibly late, but probably about a minute or two after it started.

Singers were up in the front of the room, already singing.

As was usual, the words to the song they were singing were being displayed on a screen so that all could see and follow along.

I was aware of the music but I wasn’t paying complete attention to it as I found a  place to sit.

Finding a spot, I settled in and then looked ahead to the screen and began to focus my mind on what was happening.

At the moment when I did, the first line that I can remember seeing and hearing was, "It’s all because of Jesus I’m alive…." *

Being so struck by those words, I don’t think I opened my mouth to sing.

A recent illness is still very fresh on my mind these days.

The lyrics on the screen jumped to my heart, ringing with absolute truth.

It IS all because of Jesus that I am alive.

There is no other reason.

Here are the next lines to the song:

It’s all because of Jesus I’m alive
It’s all because the blood of Jesus Christ
That covers me and raised this dead man’s life
It’s all because of Jesus I’m alive
I’m alive, I’m alive      (* All Because of Jesus by Steve Fee)


 

 

John,

   To the seven churches in the province of Asia:

   Grace and peace to you from him who is, and who was, and who is to come, and from the seven spirits before his throne,  and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth.

   To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood,  and has made us to be a kingdom and priests to serve his God and Father—to him be glory and power for ever and ever! Amen.–Revelation 1:4-6

    The dance of the Sandhill Crane occurs all through the year, not just during courtship.

    As children, we were once like that, weren’t we?

    We would jump up and down with glee at the sight of a new puppy, a birthday cake or a giant rainbow.

    Only the metal frame of the seat was still existing, the plastic cushion long worn away by the weather.
