When I look at the blood


When I look at the blood

All I see is love, love, love.

When I stop at the cross

I can see the love of God

But I can't see competition

I can't see hierachy

I can't see pride or prejudice

or the abuse of authority

I can't see lust for power

I can't see manipulation

I can't see rage or anger

or selfish ambition

But I can't see unforgiveness

I can't see hate or envy

I can't see stupid fighting

or bitterness,or jealousy.

I can't see empire building

I can't see self importance

I can't see back stabbing

Or vanity or arrogance.

I see:

surrender,

sacrifice,

salvation,

humility,

righteousness,

faithfulness,

grace,

forgiveness

Love Love Love........

When I Stop!....at the cross

I can see the love of God.
