Easter Thoughts

I can't let Easter pass without saying something - I am, after all, a Christian. This is the most important time of the year. Our human natures are the greatest problem we have in trying to put the world right, and Jesus' sacrifice is the only answer. I wrote a poem about this, which I have blogged before, but bears repeating for this weekend.

Even The Mighty Will Fail

Even the mighty will fail,
Even the conquerors fall,
Even the richest cannot pay enough,
No one can answer the call.

No one who is without fault,
No one who's not gone astray,
Only the perfect can stand before God,
Pride and deceit bar the way.

No way we can fix ourselves,
No way to undo the past,
No way to perfection in future lives,
The flaw inside holds us fast.

We have no hope in the world,
But then God gives up His Son.
So why is it so hard to accept
That he is the only One?

The One who lives without sin,
Yet is punished for us all.
The One who gives us new lives and new hearts,
Makes us conquerors after all.
