Lent 2017: Why Do This, For Me?

img_0603

How can I absorb the knowledge
That You died for me:
Slowly,
Painfully.
Was such action needed?
The sheer altruism,
Shocks,
Is unorthodox.
Why do this, for me?

Consider:
The emotion pouring out
From a God in pain,
His chest caving in,
Spilt blood creating a bridge
That no man can break.
Heaven and earth re-joined,
New life springing from death:
Two thousand years later
You set me free.

Why do this, for me?
