I love those words… “I have a shelter in the storm, when all my sins accuse me, though justice charges me with guilt, Your grace will not refuse me.” Christ the the Lord is our Rock; our Refuge; our Shelter! We are secure in Him!

“If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

1 John 1:8-9

The truth is that the more we comprehend the perfections of God’s holiness and justice, the more we will see the miserable state of our sinfulness. Yes, God is light and in Him there is no darkness at all. On the other hand we were born in sin; in darkness and deparvity. We were slaves to sin…

But God who is rich in mercy, gave us Christ the redeemer as a perfect, everlasting sacrifice for our sins, so that He could justly forgive us and cleanse us from all our unrighteousness. Oh what beauty there is to be found in this gospel truth! He is faithfull and just to forgive for Christ suffered the wrath that we deserved!
