we were in disobedience
We were rebellious
We cheated ourselves
We were all about ourselves
We were unloveable
We were utterly helpless
We abandoned God
We desecrated His plans
We were dead in our sins
We violated His decrees
We were of no use to Him
We were utterly useless
We were buried in our weaknesses
We were totally empty beings
We thought only of ourselves
We were outcasts
We had no good in us
We were enemies of God
We were addicted sinners, ugly to the core
We were the deprived
We pushed Him away
We rejected Him
We didn’t have life for we were dead – separated from our source
We were ragged in unrighteousness
We had no place with Him
Jesus died for us!
He took upon Himself our depravity and sins and shame and lack and weaknesses and took our place.
He died in our stead!
He didn’t wait for us to be perfect!
He didn’t wait for us to get it all together!
He selflessly sacrificed all for us!
He didn’t for once consider our weaknesses and mistakes!
“And only Love could make way
You gave your life in a beautiful exchange ”
His love is higher than your failures
His love is deeper than your sins
His love is wider than your mistakes
His love is greater than your imperfections
