Jesus, Friend of Sinners--Including Me!

By Belinda

Susan recommended this song to our worship team as one to learn. I listened and loved it. I also was struck by the words, especially about the fact that we are so prone to look at others rather than ourselves--and judge. God forgive us for the judgement we have directed towards others, when each of us is so in need of the grace of God for how far we fall short of God's standard daily.

Wow - powerful words. Wrote them down to reflect on them. Thanks for sharing.

I think so too, Anon. I'm so glad Susan shared it. It was meant to be I think.

Y.S. shared it with me when we were discussing your post of a few days back: http://whateverhesays.blogspot.ca/2012/07/different-kind-of-pride.html
Y.S. said, "you need to hear that new song by Casting Crowns,Mom," and then he played it for me while I blinked back tears of pain for having been misunderstood and judged and tears of repentance for having misunderstood and judged...

(Y.S. = "Youngest Son" Thank you Joel.)

Joel, thank you! And Susan, thank you for translating Y.S. for me. I would have not slept tonight trying to figure that out! :)
