Undeserved Forgiveness

"Forgiven" by Thomas Blackshear
May I always keep this image before me, Father.
You have chosen to love me,
the one whose sin helped nail Your Son to the cross.
You chose to send Him to earth,
sacrifice Him in my stead,
and place on Him the horrible and unfathomable punishment
that should be mine:
seperation from You.
This sacrifice should cause me to cringe with horror
at the very thought of damaging my relationship with You.
Keep the Gospel before my eyes.
May it control everything I
do,
say,
and think.
Forgive me for treating Your sacrifice so carelessly.
Thank You for Your undeserved mercy
and incomprehensible love.
Amen.
