This past week we memorized Colossians 2:13 and 14.
When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, having canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross.
God's sacrifice is incomprehensible to me, and there is nothing I can do to earn it. All I can offer Him is a grateful heart and the broken pieces of of my life that only He can make into the beautiful mosaic of His grace.
Of course, these verses immediately bring to mind the haunting hymn entiteld "It is Well with My Soul."
My sin--Oh the bliss of this glorious thought!--
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to His cross
And I bear it no more.
Praise the Lord,
Praise the Lord, O my soul!
It is well.
