If Jesus had just provided a way to heaven, that would have been more than enough.
If I had to endure the trials & sufferings of this world with the hope of a future glory, I would still praise Him.
But my God, who loves extravagantly, not only rescued me from darkness, sin, hopelessness,
He brought me into His Kingdom, placed me in His son,
removed all guilt, shame & condemnation,
equipped me with power to love, forgive, heal the sick, cleanse the leper, and re-present Him on earth.
He changed me from peasant to royalty,
from sinner to saint,
from unloved to loved,
from unwanted to accepted,
from being spiritually bankrupt to possessing every spiritual blessing.
He saved me completely (mind, spirit, body), extravagantly, beautifully, wonderfully. This is why I dance! This is why I praise Him!
For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. (Colossians 1:13-14 NIV)
