A PROFESSION OF LOVE
BY KAREN SANKOWSKI
We have many reasons for professing these words: I Love Thee Lord. I marvel at the depth of His loving kindness. When your eyes are opened; to the realization of your own sin, you are Guilty! Before God. This day of reckoning has become precious to me, because I now know this was the Lord working in me.
Calling me; Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give your rest. Matt.11:28.
Just as we are: full of guilt and shame we call upon the name of the Lord and beg His forgiveness Ð to deliver our soul from death. And true to His promise: Whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. Rom.10:13. Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the Lord hath dealt bountifully with thee. These are precious words brethren. Ps.116:7
Gracious is the Lord, righteous, yea our God is merciful. He has preserved me, I was brought low and He helped me. He delivered my soul from death - my eyes from tears, my feet from falling. Ps. 116: 5, 6, 8.
He is my rock, my fortress, my deliver, my God, He is my strength, In whom I will trust, my buckler Ð the horn of my salvation, my high tower. Ps. 18:2
He purged my conscience. He gave his life; that I might live.
With such a great and merciful God as this: Let us with humbled hearts, profess these words with the psalmist of old: I Love Thee Lord. Amen
