10/5/19: Colossians 1:18 – 2:7; Psalm 77:1-20; Proverbs 24:23-25

In today’s reading an action verb caught my focus.

1 Colossians 121 Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of  your evil behavior. 22 But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation.

Scripture leaves no doubt in the reality that it is God who redeems us, His creation. And that redemption is offered due to the sacrifice of His on and only Son.

The words that come to my mind are lyrics from a song, “You Are My King” by Chris Tomlin.

Amazing love, how can it be?
That you, my king. would die for me
Amazing love, I know it’s true
Its my joy to honor you
Amazing love how can it be?
That my king would die for me
