Thou Alone

This stanza from Augustus Toplady’s famous hymn has been on my mind today…

“Not the labors of my hands
can fulfill thy law’s commands;
could my zeal no respite know,
could my tears forever flow,
all for sin could not atone;
thou must save, and thou alone.”

That is why Jesus lived and died. To save people like me who could never save themselves. He must save, and he alone.  And thank God, those whom he saves, he also sustains. As Jesus says of those who repent and believe, “I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand.”
