Accepted by Him: Amazing Love, Amazing Grace!

It is because Jesus Christ cried out on the cross, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” (Mark 15:34; Matt. 27:46) that I am now able to cry out, "My God, my God, why have you accepted me?!"

It was He who, in love, chose me; adopting me in Christ, according to the purpose of His will, to the praise of His glorious grace. And that, not because of anything about me, but according to His good pleasure. (Eph. 1: 3-6)

"Amazing love! How can it be, That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?" (Hymn, Amazing Love, Charles Wesley)
