Something I have come to understand is this: I am utterly ruined by my sin and I simply cannot clean up my act on my own. However, the blood of Christ is the only cleanser that can take away the stains sin has left in my life. I can stand before a holy and righteous God – UNASHAMED, forgiven and loved. Jesus has made me clean.
Hebrews 1:3 says: “He (Jesus) is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high…”
This idea brought me to a place of worship and the song “Unashamed” by Starfield popped into my head. Read the words below and be encouraged!
I have not much, to offer You.
Not near what You deserve, but still You come,
Because Your cross, has placed in me my worth.
Oh Christ my King, of sympathy,
Whose wounds secure my peace.
Your grace extends to call me friend.
Your mercy sets me free.
And I know I’m weak, I know I’m unworthy,
To call upon Your name.
But because of grace, because of Your mercy,
I stand here unashamed.
I can’t explain this kind of love, I’m humbled and amazed,
That You’d come down, from heaven’s heights,
And greet me face to face.
Here I am at Your feet,
In my brokenness, complete.
God is SO good!
