when blood and water hit the ground, walls we couldn’t move came crashing down
we were free and made alive…
the day that true love died
NOW JESUS IS ALIVE!!!
forgive me for lacking eloquence here. i have never really been able to wrap my head around my own faith. and the things i believe about my Father. It’s a life in progress and i have to talk to myself about this every day. I up this morning and heard Joel Osteen on the television talking about Jesus. He said this “Jesus didn’t come to this world to start a religion… He came to this world to have a relationship with you”
i post this song every year on Easter because it is so powerful. there are times when i feel unworthy. unloved. and then i remember God’s love. it is so faithful and true to us. can you imagine? giving your only child up… to redeem the world? ah. i can’t even…
sometimes, i get down on myself and look back at my past. and my failures. and shortcomings. and i want to hide my head in shame. and i cry because i feel so awful to stand there with my sins before my faith. and then one day… someone told me “if it were just you… just you here on this earth… God would STILL have sent his son to die for you. this is a very personal and intimate event.”
to say that you aren’t worthy of forgiveness. worthy of His love… worthy of his mercy and grace and forgiveness…
is to say that what He did for you on the Cross was NOT GOOD ENOUGH.
“we were FREE and made ALIVE the day that true love died”
be sweetly and infinitely and FREELY blessed
