Last week, I had a Sunday Song all set to go, but because I was in a life-induced haze, I neglected to post it. This week, I am going to post it, but I’m going to post it with a follow-up video, too. Not a follow-up on the story, but on how God just gently (or sometimes, not-so-gently) keeps after us until we turn and face Him and accept Him and His love for us.
The post I had for last week centered on Lou Gramm, the former lead singer for Foreigner. After years of excess, he gave himself to Christ. As with any of us who walk on a path toward God and His ultimate goal for us, it is a long, sometimes winding path, filled with obstacles, sometimes ones of our own creation. Within Gramm’s story and the stories of many others, though, we find redemption, fogiveness and mercy.
Several times this past week I was humbled by God’s reminders to me of how loving and merciful He has been to me, in my life. It is one of the reasons why I do post these Sunday Songs. I want you all to know that same love. It is beyond the “love” people profess for each other. No human can ever do what God can for you.
So here is part of last week’s intended post. Following it is a song performed by Phillips, Craig and Dean. It is a song that illustrates Christ’s love for us.
1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
