Demands my all

Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.

When I survey the wondrous cross

The word ‘demands’ is quite a strong and forceful word isn’t it. When someone demands something from me, I must admit, I often find that puts me off doing whatever it is the person has demanded of me. Probably just because it seems like they’re just expecting me to do something rather than actually just asking me.

That said, I’ve never thought it seemed out of place in the song ‘When I Survey The Wondrous Cross’, where the last line says, in relation to God’s love, that it ‘Demands my soul, my life, my all.’

That’s some challenge isn’t it, that God ‘demands’ every single part of us, isn’t it. I know I’m as guilty as the next person of keeping hold of part of me, and not actually giving my all to God. However I pray each day that I God will help me to give him every part of me and not hold anything back. After all if I can’t trust God to love me always, despite sacrificing his only son, just so I could be free, who can I ever trust!
