The Depth and Breadth of Love

The Depth and Breadth of Love

By Abiah Makena & Kainos Mwende

It’s not a tale as old as time,
Or a myth to be passed on from one generation to the next.
It’s a reality that happened two thousand years ago.
It’s a love sacrifice that depicts the depth, breadth and waves of love.
It’s a sacrifice no son need to be asked to make, or a father bare to let it happen.

Sometimes we focus on ourselves,
We overlook the events that occurred two thousand years ago.
Do not forget this one thing, dear friends:
With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.
If to God one day is like a thousand years and a thousand years is like a day,

Then it’s been two days. Yes, two days ago indeed,
Two days ago Jesus was hung on the cross
And as he hang on that cross,
God heard words no father has the courage, the strength to bear;

“ELOI ELOI LEMA SABACHTHANI?”
My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?”

God so loved you and I, he let his begotten son die!
A sacrifice was made,
A price was paid,
And the wounds are still raw,
His promise, still fresh in his mind.

The sacrifice still blazing in his heart,
The sight of his son dying for the sake of the world that might not love him back.
Regardless of the odds, he let it happen.
An Epic battle within the father,
A blameless begotten son for an imperfect people.

Time has made us forget that day,
An enormous cost was made, a ransom paid so that
You and I can come boldly to his throne room, and call him Abba father.

We are co-heirs with Christ Jesus;
A chosen generation; a royal priesthood;
A holy nation; a peculiar people;
Because it was just two days ago that God paid for your freedom.

Two days ago, it was finished.,
GOD so loved the world, that He gave His begotten Son,
That whosoever believes in Him should not perish
but have everlasting life.

Accept the gift from this sacrifice,
SALVATION!
