New Morning Mercies: A Daily Gospel Devotional Day 16

Day 16

Romans 8:18-30

MAY 16

We are guilty. The cross purchased our forgiveness. We are unable. The Spirit gives us power. We are foolish. God’s Word provides wisdom.
What did I bring
to your salvation table?
I had
no righteousness to offer,
no strength to give,
no wisdom to present.
There was
that I could deliver
that would commend me
to you.
I crawled broken
to your table,
weighed down and crippledby
my sin,
my guilt,
my weakness,
my foolishness,
my pride,
my shame.
I had no right
to be with you,
but you picked me up
and placed me there.
You fed me
the life-giving nutrients
of grace
with your
nail-scarred hands.
And I haven’t left your
table of mercy since.
