how high and how wide


No eye has seen and no ear has heard 
And no mind has ever conceived 
The glorious things that You have prepared 
For every one who has believed 
You brought us near and You called us Your own 
And made us joint heirs with Your Son 

How high and how wide 
How deep and how long 
How sweet and how strong is Your love 
How lavish Your grace 
How faithful Your ways 
How great is Your love, O Lord 

Objects of mercy who should have known wrath 
We’re filled with unspeakable joy 
Riches of wisdom, unsearchable wealth 
And the wonder of knowing Your voice 
You are our treasure and our great reward 
Our hope and our glorious King 

How high and how wide 
How deep and how long 
How sweet and how strong is Your love 
How lavish Your grace 
How faithful Your ways 
How great is Your love, O Lord 

played the piano for this with the band as the postlude today - easily one of my favorite worship songs.

We're working through Exodus as a church on Sunday mornings, and right now we're in a mini-series on the Ten Commandments. Today's sermon was on the seventh commandment - "You shall not commit adultery." It was a great blessing to hear the challenge and call to purity proclaimed faithfully from the pulpit. Faithfully in that there was no wiggle room for "what about this?" Yes, there is always forgiveness in our Lord, but there's no going back once you cross the line. And the call to modesty, no only to protect the minds of our brothers, but also to protect ourselves. Today was a day I felt very blessed to be a member of this wonder body of believers, and under the teaching of our gifted pastor. God was glorified today.

How was your Sunday? What challenged or encouraged you today?
