Suffering Love

Redeeming love
sacrificial love
the suffering love of Christ
choosing to go to the cross
to die in our place

Nothing we can say or do
to repay the price he paid
yet humbly responding
to his boundless grace

Wanting to follow
to walk in Christ’s ways
to live as a disciple
faithful all our days

He is our example
the perfection of sacrifice
his suffering love
bringing us to our knees
rising in his grace

Luke 15:11-32
The Prodigal Son
The Story of the Lost Son
The Story of the Loving Father
Prevenient Grace
Justifying Grace
Sanctifying Grace
