The Uneven Exchange
I have yet to see His face.
And yet I cannot deny,
His unconditional love,
or His covering grace
I have yet to see His face
but he has touched my heart,
in unexplainable ways.
Crying out in worship,
completely giving myself to Him.
“Lord forgive me please, I want to live from this moment forever changed.”
Not only a witness
But a recipient of an undeniable truth that,
God, he loves me.
And I haven’t even seen his face.
How could I walk away from Him?
Honestly, no answer.
But, I do.
Repeatedly I sacrifice my relationship with Him
to go out, to fit in with a world.
I was born into
instead of representing
of which my Savior came.
Bash His name
And throw dirt on his face
A few drinks, some foreplay?
Nights that only leave me feeling
alone, shattered and ashamed?
Think about it.
Have you ever been able to cash in on any of the promises
that this world has made?
Most likely you haven't really realized,
that the Lord promises,
But I go on anyways
compromising myself daily,
Who he has called me to be
just because I refuse to let go
of a world, a comfortableness,
a desire, and a battle with sin.
Even though I know I should be reaching towards
my Heavenly Father
entangling myself in His truth, love, and conviction.
I give up spreading His gospel
and correcting my own
For a party, a wild night
A boy, music, even Netflix
Quick to minimize the effects,
the toll on my own soul.
Powerful isn’t it?
Nails in his hands
Tears in His eyes
Blood creeping down His face
He still thought of me.
“Forgive them Father.”
Attacked bruised beaten, and betrayed
He died for me.
The King of Kings
The Son of God
Died for me.
Me. You. Everyone.
All of us who were, and all of us who would be.
The same people who praise Him with our mouths
But with our actions say “Jesus, I need you to rescue me. But just not today.”
Forgetting that, to rescue us, is the whole reason He came.
To save us daily, not just on Sunday.
The race is given to those who endure to the end
Not just those who endure to the weekend.
So 401 words into this thing
What am I trying to say?
God, the Alpha and Omega, All-Seeing, and All-Knowing
The past, present, and the future
The one true God
Loves you as you are now
Broken, damaged, and undeserving.
Literally offers you His world,
A world that is perfect, Holy, pure,
A place of forgiveness and love.
And we have yet to see His face.
