Scripture for the Day (July 9, 2018)
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)
Have you ever thought or wondered about how much love it took for Jesus to do what He did at the cross? It is so indescribable that I personally have never been able to explain that type of love in words. The closest I have ever heard it articulated was in a song written by Don Potter entitled “How Much Love”. My wife and I had the privilege of working with Don Potter for a couple of years and he is one of the most anointed musicians and singers we have ever met. I recently pulled out one of Don’s old recordings and listened to this particular song again. It really ministered to me and I pray it will touch your heart like it did mine.
The following are the lyrics and also a YouTube link to listen to Don sing this great song about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ:
How graceful is your grace? How much loving kindness is forever? How much mercy is there when it comes new every morning? How much love is there when blood is the only cure? How much fire of desire must be in my Lord? How much anger is the wrath on injustice? How much fear will come on the wicked man? How much shouting will be done when a white horse comes through the clouds in splendor? How much love does it take to save a man?
It takes it all, takes it all, takes it all, every bit it takes it all, nothing held back, nothing kept in reserve, nothing kept for another day, nothing spent on something else that we don’t know about, it’s all been spent, and it was spent in a day, oh it’s all been done, it’s all been said, and it’s all been spent, and it’s all been done, and it’s finished, yes it’s finished, in a day.
