As I reflect on God’s unspeakable gift of eternal life through the death and resurrection of His Son, I am utterly undone by His love. My mind cannot begin to comprehend what He has done, or how or why. The paradox is not only in the cross, but in all aspects of His awesome salvation plan.
These thoughts inspired the poem below, which is a repost from April 2013. May all of you have a blessed Resurrection Sunday reflecting on the mysteries of His amazing grace! Praise God that Christ is risen indeed! Trust in Him and live forever!
Jesus Christ was born to die
Jesus served so we could reign
Maker of all, the King of Kings
The cruel thorns, the ugly scars
His blood-soaked cross made peace with God
He loved us despite our hate
His ways are not our ways.
We die to sin to be reborn
Foolish things confound the wise
Trust in Him with childlike faith
