What the Gospel Does For Me

 Yesterday I went on a walk through the neighborhood meditating on the Gospel. Of how Jesus came into the world to save sinners (of whom I'm the worst); by His life, death, and resurrection. Meditating on this rich and glorious news led me to marvel at it. A bit later, this is what I wrote:

To meditate on
And marvel at the Gospel
Is rich goodness
For my soul
It's relieving
And freeing
It brings comfort
And restores joy
It humbles me
And causes me
To forget myself
It causes me to rejoice
And drives me
To greater worship
It reminds me
Of where my identity is
And of the hope
Of future glory
It exalts
And points me to
It's Author
So that I
I may behold
And marvel at Him

Yes! For that is what the Gospel does for me, as a child of the Most High God!
