O Stand Amazed At His Free Grace

Quiet Waters

(Thomas Sherman, “Divine Breathings; Or, a Pious Soul Thirsting after Christ”)

O precious saint! Three questions call for your answer:
1. What were you?
2. What are you?
3. What shall you be?

1. What were you?

Dead in your transgressions and sins, a rebel to your God, a prodigal to your Father, a slave to your lust, the devil’s captive, on the highway to hell.

2. What are you?
Redeemed by Christ,
a royal child of God,
the spouse of Christ,
the temple of the Holy Spirit,
the heir of a priceless eternal inheritance!

3. What shall you be?
A glorious saint,
a companion of angels,
a triumphant victor,
a crowned king,
an attendant on the Lamb,
a participant in those soul-ravishing and ineffable excellencies that are in God! You shall behold the King of Glory face to face–and enjoy immediate communion with Jesus Christ! Nay more, you are made one with Him:
clothed with His excellencies,
enthroned with His glories,
crowned with His eternity,
and filled with His felicity!
“No eye has seen,
no ear has heard, and
no mind has imagined . . .
what God has prepared for those who love Him!”
1 Corinthians 2:9

O stand amazed at His free grace–and render all the glory to God!

  1. Hello Tisheri
    That’s so beautiful!!! Thanks for sharing,that’s what I’ve started when I don’t hear to write I share encouraging devotionals.
    Love you 😀

    • Hi Pat,

      I love these devotionals. I get these in my email (they are public domain). I can’t seem to be able to start my day unless I read it. It’s just a great way to start my day and they’re not long so it makes it easy.

      I’ve been so busy lately and it should slow don by next month. I’ll be able to get back into blogging and really reading people’s blogs (which I really miss doing).
