My heart is stirred.
At that time, I was a gentile.
At that time, I was without the Messiah.
At that time, I was excluded from the citizenship of Heaven.
At that time, I was a foreigner to the promise,
At that time, I was without hope and without God in this world.
But now, I have been brought near by the blood of the Messiah.
When Christ came, he proclaimed the good news of peace to you who were far away and peace to you who were near.
For through Him, we both have access by One Spirit to the Father.
Too often I forget what He did and who I was. But now, I have peace and hope and God in this world. He is too good.
