Love Unconstrained

Matthew 27:26 “…But he had Jesus flogged and handed Him over to be crucified.” (NIV)*

With one word spoken

The earth could swallow alive.

Lightening could strike–

Just one look from those eyes.

………………..

In one breath taken

winds could blow them away.

Right arm stretched out–

Fear, holding enemy sway.

………………..

Jesus, all powerful,

All power restrained.

He let them crucify Him–

Gushing love unconstrained.
