This morning in worship, I was struck by these words from Kristian Stanfill’s song “Beautiful Jesus.”
Your love O God, displayed for us as crimson covered over sinless hands…
The imagery of the wounded hands, bleeding by choice. Blood shed willingly to cover our sin.
Hands that were sinless, pure, undefiled, stained by the cleansing blood of Christ, our Savior.
…as crimson covered over sinless hands…marvelous, powerful, life changing imagery.
He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
2 Corinthians 5:21
