Win Over Our Hearts

August 20, 2011

How can you convince us or reason with us when our intellectual capacities have atrophied, and our minds are filled with thoughts of doing evil?

How can you make us love you when our hearts long for idols and other lovers?

How can you call us friends when we are your enemies, when we hate you and your laws?

Your grace is irresistible because your will is un-negotiable, an unstoppable tidal wave of love.  Your grace also turns our hearts and our minds back to you.  We come to love you, to love your laws, to find in them beauty.  And through this grace, we are declared to be “Righteous!”  We come to delight in your laws, we come to delight in you.

So win over our hearts.  Make yourself irresistible to us.
