When Simon Peter saw this,
he fell at Jesus’ knees and said,
“Go away from me, Lord;
I am a sinful man!”
My Healing Wine
The more days that pass
The more aware I am
of my crimes of shame
nailed into your hands
Though I’ve grown in You
by your holy grace
So much more I need
as I seek your face
Your pure Light reveals
and exposes my greed
all my sinful thoughts
and any false beliefs
From your open side
poured out love Divine
Mercy’s cleansing flood
and my healing wine.
One Sunday, years ago, a godly, elderly lady stood up in church to share with us how ashamed she was
for some critical thoughts she had had toward a young mother with an unruly child.
She had repented, inwardly, on the spot
and chose to bless the mother instead; she read to the child.
I was deeply impressed with how humble
and how teachable this lovely lady was.
The depth of her remorse over her own sin
was a sermon for all of us that Sunday.
Woe to me!” I cried.
“I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips,
and I live among a people of unclean lips,
and my eyes have seen the King,
the Lord Almighty.”
