This morning, I was listening to Hillsong’s “To know your name” with my daughter Oluwatofunmi and I could not help but shed tears as I sang along. The part, “Your grace has overwhelmed my brokenness” really got me. “He took my place, knowing he’d be crucified” made me realize I do not know the extent of His love for me and that we have no clue the heart of our Creator, especially since we tend to blame Him for what goes wrong in our lives and in the world. I had to shed tears when I heard, “You loved a people undeserving” and I realize that even though I am undeserving, I am loved to death by the Creator and sustainer of the universe. I am humbled and honored by the grace and glory given to me, to us in the person of Jesus Christ.
Needy and in rags, we keep spitting in God’s face and yet all He wants to do is embrace us and lift us up to His royalty. Words fail to describe the meaning and reality. It has to be experienced.
