How Can It Be

How can it be that Christ would give
His very life, a sacrifice,
That rebels might be saved and life--
Redeemed at such a dreadful price?

How can it be that God would die
For those whose sin was blood-stained-red--
That He would lift them up on high--
Alive and clean instead of dead?

I can't explain this massive grace
That flows from Christ unceasingly.
I only know that in his face
Is holy love that rescues me.

Written March 9, 2014; Founders Baptist Church, Spring, Texas.

But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8 ESV)
