Five Minute Friday: STILL
It’s Friday! It’s time for another link up with The Gypsy Mama who has taken Five Minute Friday on the road this week and is posting over at (in)courage.
Five Minute Friday is “a time when we just write for 5 minutes not worrying whether everything is just right.” If you would like to join in Click Here.
It’s a love I still have a hard time wrapping my brain around.
You hung there with your body broken and beaten.
You said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”
Even then, while suffering a pain I can’t even begin to imagine,
you still loved me.
I think of the thieves on either side of You.
One mocked you.
One found you.
“Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.”
Still you were loving us
and healing us
and offering us life
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)
