What I like about the song At the Cross

Welcome to Good Apples Friday
Today I wanted to share this song called "At the Cross" by Chris Tomlin.
There's a place where mercy reigns and never dies
There's a place where streams of grace flow deep and wide
Where all the love I've ever found
Comes like a flood
Comes flowing down

At the cross
At the cross
I surrender my life
I'm in awe of You
I'm in awe of You
Where Your love ran red
And my sin washed white
I owe all to You
I owe all to You Jesus

There's a place where sin and shame are powerless
Where my heart has peace with God and forgiveness
Where all the love I've ever found
Comes like a flood
Comes flowing down


Here my hope is found
Here on holy ground
Here I bow down
Here I bow down
Here arms open wide
Here You save my life
Here I bow down
Here I bow

I love this song so much. It's so peaceful.

I love the line "I'm in awe of you."
Whenever I think about Jesus dyeing on the cross I think about the sacrifice he gave up.  
How he died for the ones who were beating him to death.
He gave his life for us; the ones who constantly disobey and hate him.

"I'm in awe of you"
You are awesome God.
To die for us.
To die for them.
To love us so much that you would die for us.

And how do we apply to this message?
To this loving God who died for us.
How do we apply to this?

We bow down to him.
We follow him.
And we tell others about this amazing God.

Isn't God amazing?
Every single Good Apples Friday post I write I always leave saying,
"WOW. WOW. My God is so awesome. So amazing. So powerful. So loving. So caring. So forgiving."

I hope you feel this way to when you read about God.
Have a lovely week.
A great Reformation Day!
And that you may be reminded of how amazing God is every single day.
