Though this is not the original poem I had planned to post on Easter, I hope it still helps you remember the reason behind what Christ did on the event we celebrate today.
No money changed hands,
no contract was made,
no sum was counted out,
yet still, a price was paid.
Though paid in blood, not cash,
though paid for others’ sins,
though more than anyone could pay,
the price was paid by Him.
He paid it, not for fame,
He paid it, not just because He must,
He paid with His great drops of blood.
The price was paid for us.
He asks no slaughtered lamb,
He asks no rivers of oil,
He asks no burnt offerings, now.
The price was paid in full.
