Sunday Selah: Immanuel’s Land

Are there hymns that hold a special place in your heart? This one always touches and softens mine. Especially when shared at the beginning of LORDโ€™s Supper, these words draw my thoughts to the One who claims me as His own.

Anne Ross Cousin (1824-1906)

The pure and unfailing love of our LORD JESUS causes all other thoughts, concerns, or even delights to fall away. In those moments, I am simply captivated by Him and I can say with His disciples, โ€œIt is good for me to be hereโ€ (Matthew 17:4).

My mind is also transported to a future day, when I will see Him face to face, when His glory will engulf my whole view. In that place, the fullness of IMMANUEL (GOD with us) will be realized. It will be no less staggering to me that on no merit of my own I will stand on heavenโ€™s shore (or more appropriately, fall to my knees!) and offer praise from a glorified and finally undivided heart.

This morning, as we look back and look forward, may these few thoughts fix our gaze upon our Savior and draw our hearts to offer fresh thanksgiving to the Father for the love of His dear Son.
