It’s sad when they believe that God’s commands are unfair
Where they see restrictions, I see a God who cares
It’s sad when they mock the Creator of all things
They don’t understand the joy that He brings.
Father, forgive them
They know not what they do
Your very own words, as they wounded You
Yet, still, Your plan is to redeem and restore
If only they could see that You’re alive forever more.
It’s sad when they prefer to injure themselves
They don’t understand that You’re a God who helps
It’s sad they can’t see who the true hero is
You suffered and died so that they may truly live.
I, too, have worn these very same shoes
I didn’t believe, so I scorned the good news
I couldn’t see that You were there for me.
Lord Jesus, thank you, for saving me.

“God’s readiness to give and forgive is now public. Salvation’s available for everyone! We’re being shown how to turn our backs on a godless, indulgent life, and how to take on a God-filled, God-honoring life. This new life is starting right now, and is whetting our appetites for the glorious day when our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, appears. He offered Himself as a sacrifice to free us from a dark, rebellious life into this good, pure life, making us a people He can be proud of, energetic in goodness.”–Titus 2:11-14(MSG)
