My name is Jacob Kier (pronounced just like “ear” with a k on the front) and I’m a Christian, husband, and father. I intend to use this site to share my thoughts on things I find interesting, entertaining, and educational.
Why the name Treasured Wretch? One of my favorite songs is How Deep The Father’s Love For Us by Stuart Townend which includes the lyric:
How deep the Father’s love for us,
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure
I know that I am a rebel against God and that I deserve His wrath. And yet God loved wretched sinners like myself so much that sent His Son, Jesus, to die a brutal and bloody death upon the cross and take the wrath of God which we rightfully deserve. Because I’ve placed my trust in that sacrifice of Jesus on my behalf I have, as the song says, gone from being a wretch to being a treasured child of God.
