Grace stands in direct opposition to any supposed worthiness on our part. To say it another way: Grace and works are mutually exclusive. Our relationship with God is based on either works or grace. There is never a works-plus-grace relationship with Him. Jerry Bridges


I thank you, Lord for you have seen to give me your loving grace
For I am simply lowly man whose imperfection is hard to face
 
I praise you that you sent your only son, Jesus to come to this planet Earth
For only because he paid the price of my sin can I obtain any worth
 
As the apostle Paul once wrote, “Oh sinner that I am, who is there who will save me?”
My salvation was bought for me when Jesus Christ was hung upon that tree
 
He was ridiculed and punished though he was perfect and this is how salvation came to me
 
I sing praises and glorify your name because you showed for me such love
It was those imperfect ones like me for whom he was lifted up above
 
“My Father,” I pray. “I bare my soul to thee and I confess to thee”
“And I pray this prayer with humility for the love you show for me”
Rebirth of the Dogwood
