true love

how deep the Father's love for us
how vast beyond all measure
that He would give His only Son
to make a wretch His treasure.

how great the pain of searing loss
the Father turns his head away
as wounds which mar the chosen one
bring may sons to glory

behold the Man upon the cross
my guilt upon His shoulders
ashamed I hear my mocking voice
call out among the scoffers

it was my sin that held Him there
until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
i know that it is finished

i will not boast in anything
no gifts, no power, no wisdom
but i will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection

why should i gain from His reward?
i cannot give an answer
but this i know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom

as i reflect on today, i'm humbled that such an awesome God would make such a sacrifice...for someone like me.  i'm not perfect.  i mess up all the time.  i'm prideful.  often times i take God's grace, mercy and love for granted.  but God still loves me despite all that.
God's abundant love is so much more than i will ever be able to comprehend.  his overflowing mercy is beyond what my mind can grasp.

when i think about how much God loves us, i am blown away.  it is a love so amazing that it sometimes brings me to tears.  

a sacrificial love.  a love that's never ending.  

never. ending.

Beautiful Prasti, very well said! I do have a confession, when i was writing my blog this week, i debated on one point and left it out..... probably because I was ashamed.... I dont think i would ever sacrifice my children, let alone my only son.... for anyone let alone the sins of the world! I'm so glad our God is above that! :)

Love you guys and have a Blessed Easter! He is Risen! :)
