 poem: that you loved me in spite of me

Lord, in all things i can only look to the cross
your Spirit as fire cleansing away the dross

and thus i give you everything much more so than just a part
uprooting things buried deep within as confessions from my heart:

for i am an adulterer a murderer and a thief at heart
jealous and angry and from holiness apart

my best intentions
stand as my worst contentions

even my best confessions
stand as mere pretensions

not knowing the difference from left to right
and consistently choosing the darkness over light

naked and poor, wretched and blind
in myself or this world no hope i could find

but your grace shines bright through the darkest of night
like stars that twinkle in the night sky so bright

and you reached down and saw my helpless estate
and gave me your love and by grace changed my fate

and without rhyme or reason
despite my sin and treason
you came and changed the seasons
of my heart and gave me a reason

to live to love to hope and dream
as you lead me beside the gentle stream

watering the tree once fruitless and dead
now blossoming to life bearing fruit instead

that your love for me stands forever the same
and in the light of this truth i will remain

that you loved me in spite of me
that you loved me in spite of me

and in this truth i am finally set free

Praise God,

This is a poem that has really allowed me to see more of the grace of God in Jesus Christ.

What hit me the most was:

"my best intentions
stand as my worst contentions

even my best confessions
stands as mere pretensions"

It's amazing how we try to correct our motives and try to pray in a certain way in order that we may justify ourselves before God and expect Him to hear us. But praise God that we are not justified by good motives, nor by confession, but by Christ and Christ alone. Not justified either by freedom from certain sins, but by faith in Christ. Even our victories over sin are not perfect. Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord, who is our Perfect Sacrifice on our behalf. God help us to see this truth more clearly, that we may never stray from this glorious Gospel.

Amen,

- Michael Liao
