Pristine Grace

How Excellent O God!
by David Eddmenson
How Excellent O God!

How excellent is thy loving-kindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.Psalm 36:7

    I LOVE TO SEE and bask in the Light of God’s electing love, for Christ is God’s Elect and it was in Him that His people were chosen before they ever existed, removing all doubt about Who does the saving. (Ephesians 1:4)

    I LOVE TO HEAR of Divine substitution, for it was Christ Jesus, my Lord, my Savior, and my God who substituted Himself and died in the place of the ungodly. (Romans 5:6)

    I LOVE TO THINK on God’s irresistible call of sovereign grace, for I would have resisted had Christ not made me willing in the day of His power. (Psalm 110:3) It is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.” (Romans 9:16)

    I LOVE TO PREACH on perfect righteousness and justification, for Christ gave His perfect righteousness to His sheep as He took their sins upon Himself, remaining both “just” and Justifier,” of those who believe in Christ.” (Romans 3:26)

    I LOVE TO BELIEVE that Christ chose me, called me, and took my place, justifying me before the Father by giving me His perfect righteousness. (2 Corinthians 5:21)

    I LOVE TO REST in the excellence of Christ’s loving-kindness, for greater love hath no man than this, that He lay down his life for his friends. (John 15:13)

    IS IT THEN ANY WONDER that Jesus Christ is everything to the saved sinner?
