Sunday Snippet - The Greatest Wonder


I am rejoicing in the mercies of my God today. His kindnesses to this poor weary saint have been manifold. A good study with my Sunday school children this morning, two good sermons today, wonderful hymns at each service,the Lord's Supper, and a precious time of prayer tonight have left me ready to face another week. We heard about the "Seven Wonders of God" tonight as Pastor R. finished off with the greatest wonder of all: That God loves us. For those of us who have come to Him through His Son, we can be assured that He loves us. That indeed is a wonder and wonderful. The final words of the sermon:

I stand amazed in the presence
Of Jesus the Nazarene,
And wonder how He could love me,
A sinner, condemned, unclean.

Wishing God's blessings to all my fellow pilgrims throughout this week.

Ah, yes, a fellow pilgrim indeed. Great post and great day of refreshing! I love that picture too, God's awesome wonders, but wonder of wonder, that He would give His life for us...

I'll have to get the tape of last night's sermon - Lena was a little too noisy in the nursery for me to hear anything!

Thanks for sharing. Our service/worship time had to do with glorifying God in his majesty. Wouldn't you know that SS time opened with our main purpose: to glorify God. Appreciate your insights! God is always working.

Thank you for posting this Mrs. R! I too was greatly encouraged by the sermons on Sunday. The first sermon especially stuck with me. Neesie and I were saying that the sermon went right along with our study on Mary that day!

You know Maxine, God seems to speak loudest to me through nature and so the photo you used captivated me. Looks like the Grand Canyon ... which always leaves me in awe. But yes, the greatest wonder of the universe is the love of the Creator.

I wonder how He could love me,
A sinner, condemned, unclean.
But He did, enough to die for me...
Praise Him forever more...

If we could offer HIM a million thanks, it would not be enough. Thank you for sharing.

His love and mercies are indeed beyond our capability to fully understand. Someone once remarked that He must see something of worth in us. But that is a man-centered gospel. He loves us simply because He is love. The worth is found in Him alone.
