Lent 2017: Sacrifice

IMG_0607

What greater tribute
Than sacrifice
Could have been made
By God above
To show His love
For man?
When we were far off
He met us where we were,
Atoned for our sins,
Past, present and future,
His death the suture
Of love.

I live in continual amazement
At His sacrifice.
Greater love has no man
Than to lay down his life for another,
He was no man yet I am his brother.
Tied by invisible bonds
I bow before Him,
Acknowlede His superiority,
He does not see
My inferiority
And so deemed me worthy.

John 15:13 ‘Greater love has no one than this, to lay down one’s life for one’ friends’.
