Seize the Moment – Day 1250

Today’s song focus will be

How Deep the Father’s Love for Us

 

John 3:16-17 (NASB95)              

 

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that

whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.  For God did

not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might

be saved through Him.”

 

Today’s song was written by Christian Worship Leader Stuart Townsend in an effort bring our focus on our Lord more than ourselves. He desired to help believers to put Christ as the center of our worship, no matter the situation. Many times, our

emotions try to be the center when, if we put Christ as the center, we will never be disappointed.

 

          How deep the Father’s love for us, How vast beyond all measure,

         That He should give His only Son to make a wretch His treasure.

 

We need to wake up and focus our worship on the One Who did so much for us. Our worship should never be self-seeking or self-serving, making it all about how we feel or what we need. Our worship should be focused on the One who deserves our highest praise…our wonderful, omnipotent God. Then our emotions will be a by-product of that focus.

How Deep the Father’s Love for Us

 
How deep the Father’s love for us,
How vast beyond all measure,
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure.
How great the pain of searing loss –
The Father turns His face away,
As wounds which mar the Chosen One
Bring many sons to glory.
 

Behold the man upon a cross,
My sin upon His shoulders;
Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers.
It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished;
His dying breath has brought me life –
I know that it is finished.

 

I will not boast in anything,
No gifts, no power, no wisdom;
But I will boast in Jesus Christ,
His death and resurrection.
Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer;
But this I know with all my heart –
His wounds have paid my ransom.
