Only because...

Not because of who I was, who I am, or who I will become.
Only because of Who He Was, Who He Is, and Who He Will Be forever.

I was nothing more than dust, rags,
dirty fragments
made whole and holy
by a single drop of blood.

How then could I now be silent?
How can I not speak of His amazing love?

I am compelled by grace.

For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross. Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation—

Stop by Bridget Chumbley's to read other views on reconciliation.

Only He had the means and ability for reconciliation--and He was willing. He still is. That's humbling and awe-inspiring. Yes, I'm compelled by grace.

Thanks, Karin.

And we do nothing to deserve this. Nothing. In fact, we do everything not to deserve this.

Good post.

I was lost and undone, but because of God's dear Son, I am reconciled and placed into His family. I am now a child of the King.
I enjoyed your choice of scripture and your words.

I loved it... who can imagine for us that it was "one drop of blood"... with the sin in my life I would have expected buckets full only splotching me... and yet...
