Because He Lives

Wanting happiness, fulfillment, acceptance, purpose.
Hopeless. Self-righteous. Frustrated. Proud.
A chasm away from a holy God.

A Father longing for his child.
Broken-hearted over sin's separation.

A miraculous, impossible plan - God in human skin.
A short life on earth lived without
one selfish thought or action.

A savage death nailed to a cross.
My penalty paid.  My sentence served.

Amazing love - how can it be
That You, my God, would die for me?

An empty grave.
Sin's ugly power defeated.
His Spirit now home in me.
A life made new.

Because He lives
I belong to Him.
