From Wretch to Treasure

This week we are attending District Council (Pastor meetings). We meet together; focusing on business matters, but more importantly, focusing time to rekindle relationship with others in ministry and refreshing our hearts through worship and Word.

This morning, we were able to share communion together. My heart was touched by this particular song:

How Deep the Father’s Love for Us
By Stuart Townend

How deep the Father’s love for us
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
And make a wretch His treasure

How great the pain of searing loss
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the Chosen One
Bring many sons to glory

Behold the man upon the cross
My sin upon His shoulder
Ashamed I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers

It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I know that it is finished

I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no power, no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection

Why should I gain from His reward
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom

That He should give His only Son
And make a wretch His treasure.

Knowing my own life; imperfect in actions and attitudes.  Many times I’ve failed…and yet He still loves.

It’s through His grace I am taken from wretch to treasure~ only by His Grace.
