I Stand Amazed

"I stand amazed in the presence of Jesus the Nazarene and wonder how He could love me, a sinner condemned, unclean.

How marvelous! How wonderful! And my song shall ever be: How marvelous! How wonderful is my savior's love for me."

I've been reading the story of Jesus' death, burial and resurrection every day this week. God has softened my heart once again for this story of how much He loved me. His love was so marvelous and so wonderful that He sent His only begotten Son to die for my sins.

Today, reread the four accounts of His sacrifice for you.

Matthew 26-28

And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt. Matthew 26:39

"For me it was in the garden He prayed 'Not My will, but Thine,' He had no tears for His own griefs, but sweat drops of blood for mine.

How marvelous! How wonderful! And my song shall ever be: How marvelous! How wonderful is my savior's love for me."

Mark 14-16

And they smote him on the head with a reed, and did spit upon him, and bowing their knees worshipped him. And when they had mocked him, they took off the purple from him, and put his own clothes on him, and led him out to crucify him. Mark 15:19-20

"In pity angels beheld Him, And came from the world of light, to comfort Him in the sorrows He bore for my soul that night.

How marvelous! How wonderful! And my song shall ever be: How marvelous! How wonderful is my savior's love for me."

Luke 22-24

And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost. Now when the centurion saw what was done, he glorified God, saying, Certainly this was a righteous man. Luke 23:46-47

"He took my sins and my sorrows, He made them His very own; He bore the burden to Calv'ry and suffered and died alone.

How marvelous! How wonderful! And my song shall ever be: How marvelous! How wonderful is my savior's love for me."

John 18-20

Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. And when he had so said, he showed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord. John 20:19-20

"When with the ransomed in glory His face I at last shall see, 'Twill be my joy thro' the ages to sing of His love for me.

How marvelous! How wonderful! And my song shall ever be: How marvelous! How wonderful is my savior's love for me."
