My Vision of Your Compassion- Lent 38, 2020

Prayer Focus: Humility and Compassion Capped Jesus’ Life

Lord Jesus, Your Word tells us “It was just before the Passover Festival. Jesus knew that the hour had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end.” It was Your deep love for the Father, Your deep love for us, Your compassion upon our helpless state of sin and impending justice that kept You faithful to the end. There is no way we could ever repay You. All I can do is ask for Your forgiveness and Your mercy…Your compassion…upon me, a sinner. I praise You that Your death on the Cross accomplished a paid-in-full upon my sin and that I don’t have to beg for mercy though by all rights I should. Your compassion is matchless. Remembering that among Your dying words, they were spoken for forgiveness because we didn’t know what we were doing. Spoken for Your mother Mary and the beloved disciple John of ongoing relationship, and more, giving an admitted sinner reassurance of paradise with You. “Marvelous grace of our loving Lord, Grace that exceeds our sin and our guilt! Yonder on Calvary’s mount outpoured. There where the blood of the Lamb was spilled. Grace, grace, God’s grace, Grace that will pardon and cleanse within; Grace, grace, God’s grace, Grace that is greater than all our sin!” My soul wells up with Hallelujahs…Receive my adoration, Lord Jesus. You are worthy! Amen.
