Thankful

I have to give credit where credit is due. The name of this blog comes from a song by Derek Webb entitled Thankful. Fittingly, it is a song about our total depravity in sin and utter dependence on grace for our salvation. As Christians, we of all people have the most to be thankful for!
You know I ran across
An old box of letters
When I was bagging up some clothes for goodwill

But you know I had to laugh
At the same old struggles
That plagued me then are plaguing me still

'Cause I know the road is long

From the ground to glory
But a boy can hope he's getting some place

But you see I'm running from
The very clothes I'm wearing
And dressed like this I'm fit for the chase

You know there is none righteous
Not one who understands
There is none who seeks God no not one
No not one
So I am thankful that I'm incapable of doing any good on my own
Said I'm so thankful that I'm incapable of doing any good on my own
'Cause we're all still-born
Dead in our transgressions
Shackled up to the sin we hold so dear

What part can I play
In the work of redemption
'Cause I can't refuse and I cannot add a thing

'Cause I am just like Lazarus
And I can hear your voice
And I stand and rub my eyes and walk to you
Because I have no choice
'Cause it's by grace I have been saved
And through faith it's not my own
It is a gift of God and not by works
Lest anyone should boast
