"He provided redemption for his people; he ordained his covenant forever— holy and awesome is his name." [psalm 111:9]
the most amazing thing about our God is that He SAVED us from DEATH. not just death, but forever torture and punishment. that's huge!!!
because of this, we receive his covenant. not because we deserve it AT ALL, but because of his good pleasure and his choice. this makes it all the more amazing. he chose us simply because he wanted to.
my only response to his great love and salvation is praise. he's beyond comprehension and is deserving of constant worship, both from my mouth and from my life. my sin breaks his heart, and it's my joy to strive to be sinless. of course, i can't be sinless, but it should be my desire. i should love Christ and hate darkness.
