God is faithful from the first to the last

One part of my Easter experience is all but over, my chocolate eggs are gone & the fragments of coloured foil are in the bin or remnants scrunched up in my pockets to be discovered at a later date… But Easter is not finished & Christ is still at work. I realise I don’t deserve God’s love & at times find myself in agreement with Satan & my own poverty stricken estimations on this very matter as I contemplate my miserable position.Yes I have lots of good points & Satan is willing to exploit those too.

Faith however allows me to see past my misery & pride, like the striking golden sun that chases away the shadows of night so the sacrifice given in love & power chases away my fears & failings. Matt 1:21.  She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”

I know not why God’s wondrous grace
  To me He hath made known,
Nor why, unworthy, Christ in love
  Redeemed me for His own.

{Chorus: to be sung after each stanza}
But “I know Whom I have believed
And am persuaded that He is able
To keep that which I’ve committed
Unto Him against that day.”

I know not how this saving faith
  To me He did impart,
Nor how believing in His word
  Wrought peace within my heart.

I know not how the Spirit moves,
  Convincing men of sin,
Revealing Jesus through the Word,
  Creating faith in Him.

I know not what of good or ill
  May be reserved for me,
Of weary ways or golden days,
  Before His face I see.

I know not when my Lord may come,
  At night or noon-day fair,
Nor if I’ll walk the vale with Him,

  Or “meet Him in the air.”
