what wondrous love!

 

greek word “agape”

God’s unconditional love

reaches for rebels

 

he humbly disrobed

to wash Judas’ dirty feet

king assumed servant role

 

he lay down own life

to pay ransom for captives

sweat pressed in garden

 

Jesus’ sacrifice

blood shed on altar for sin

perfect Lamb of God

 

remembering him

my first love, true love, best love

sing with gratitude

capital crimes

 

how dying

Jew on cross

draws all

of us to

him?

 

bloody bruised body

exposed thirsty agony

shameless naked gore

 

sacrifice paid as ransom…

how do we understand love?
