One of my favorite worship songs right now is “Reckless Love” by Cory Asbury (The video of it is below). Every time I hear it I get excited all over again about how much God desires us, and what lengths He goes to in order to capture our hearts. The word lavish comes to mind. If we believe that we are valued so much by our Lord, how can we not respond?
“In our abandonment we give ourselves over to God just as God gave Himself for us, without any calculations. The consequences of abandonment never enter into our outlook because our life is taken up in Him.”
“Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.”
“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
