Grace greater than our sin

No human mind can adequately estimate the infinite value of the divine sacrifice, for although the sin of God’s people is great, the atonement that takes it away is immeasurably greater. Therefore, even when sin rolls in like a flood, and the remembrance of the past is bitter, the believer can still stand before the blazing throne of the great and holy God and cry, “Who is to condemn: Christ Jesus is the one who died–more than that, who was raised.” While the recollection of the believers’s sin fills him with shame and sorrow, its very darkness serves to show the brightness of mercy; guilt is the dark night in which the fair star of divine love shines with serene splendor. –Charles H. Spurgeon
Thank you just does not seem adequate.

But I'll say it anyway, Thank You Lord, that your grace is greater than my sin!
