We love cos he first loved us, despite our so many flaws and obvious weaknesses, despite all out shortcomings and betrayals, and inspite of our fears and doubts, yet, he still loves us.
Am I deserving of his love, what could I have ever done to earn his love, I was foolish when I told friends at my conversion that I gave my life to Him, but did I? You see, he gave his life for me, that by his death, I might attain a righteous standing before the Father, not having spots or blemish, as a lamb, he was sent to the cross, his blood, a propitiation for my sins, a righteous Father sacrificing a righteous son for a sinful me.
Through his death, burial, resurrection and ascention, I am able to see the divine in the orchestration of events of life, how what seems foolish and worthless could be priceless. My gifts, talents and abilities find more meaning and expression when I think of the great price for which I've been bought, and the birthing of purpose, and as a son and not a slave, I now enjoy the same privileges as the chosen one that was slain cos of my confession and submission that he's Lord, such childlike faith but eternal consequence.
You see, works cannot compensate for what you've done for me and I am most grateful that you gave your life, knowing that you loved me without me ever doing anything to earn it makes loving you my soul's desire and serving you a show of love.
