not to sacrifice

we will not be asked to follow
to jump off a cliff
to climb the cross
not to sacrifice
as Christ did
he has defeated death
we are asked to follow
to walk in his way
to submit our lives to God
but we are not asked to give our life
to save us from the dead
Christ already paid the price
the debt already paid
