Mercy on display

The cross
Not just a piece of wood
Or a moment in history
But the ultimate reality

Stained red with blood that makes white
Horridly beautiful

Mercy on display
The plan of all the ages
Acted out upon the stage of earth

Grace triumphant in brutality

Man shakes his fist at God and says, “You must die.”

God extends His hand to man and says “You shall live.”

“Therefore be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.”  Luke 6:36
