Most Fridays, I join Kate Motaung for Five Minute Friday. One word prompt. Five minutes. No editing. Lots of women. All of us writing on that same word.
Today the word prompt is … Free.
Each Thursday night, I read the word prompt on my twitter feed and head to bed. The word will weave in and through my thoughts during the night. Most mornings, it is a surprise to discover the manner in which the thought has lodged and is waiting for me. This morning was no different …
Thank you, Lord, for saving my soul,
Thank you, Lord, for making me whole;
Thank you, Lord, for giving to me
Thy great salvation so rich and free.
“Free” as defined in the NLT Study Bible is “not bound, confined, or detained by force; without restraint, inhibition or cost.”
This morning I am being reminded of my salvation, freely given when I am most undeserving …
- “And we have received God’s Spirit not the world’s spirit, so we can know the wonderful things God has freely given us.” (1 Corinthians 2:12, NLT)
- “Give as freely as you have received.” (Matthew 10:8b, NLT)
I am overwhelmed in thinking of this free gift I have received.
Free to me.
At great cost to Him.
“Thank you, Lord, for giving to me
Thy great salvation so rich and free.”
