What Are You Giving God?

When I look into myself, I find nothing good. I find nothing worthy of God’s love and care. I find nothing to turn away God’s deserved-wrath for me. I find nothing. I despair of myself.

Yet I have hope. I have hope not in doing better or becoming better, but in the One who does not need to get better, for He is perfect. I have hope in the perfect One who put a cross on his back and bore God’s wrath for my sin. Rising from the dead, Jesus’ grace is beyond enough for me. I bring him nothing and sing,

“I looked inside and found nothing
Just like You said I would
But You created from nothing
So I am waiting
I think You said, “Bring your nothing,
And I’ll give everything

Oh, God of mercy
God who understands me
God who made me thirsty
Then came down and gave me drink

I’ll bring nothing
You bring everything
How could it be?
I’ll bring nothing
You bring everything
How could it be?

I looked inside and found nothing”

For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh. For I have the desire to do what is right, but not the ability to carry it out.” Romans 7:18.
