Transformation


All we bring is brokenness—
     Wounds that fester,
     Stench of sin.
All we bring is nothingness—
     No achievements,
     No good works.
Jesus gives us everything—
     First his words, and
     Then his touch.
Jesus gives us cleanliness—
     Full forgiveness,
     Sins all gone.
Jesus gives us holiness—
     His own Spirit
     Now within.

Transformation we’ve not earned—
     Praise and bless him
     Evermore.

And behold, a leper came to him and knelt before him, saying, “Lord, if you will, you can make me clean.” And Jesus stretched out his hand and touched him, saying, “I will; be clean.” And immediately his leprosy was cleansed. (Matthew 8:2-3 ESV)
