Red is red and green is green
And yellow’s another colour
Black changes not, if white declared
Nor even the reverse order
But, what if I don’t know red’s red
Never perceived green’s green
Will colour’s substance, behaviour change
If my ignorance is seen?
Colours will invigorate
Or overwhelm, engulf, beset
No matter what I call them
Black makes the white so radiant
White shows the black so stark
And Love reveals all that is not
Of Love; all that is dark
Love is love, as Love declares
What love will always be
To give His name to something else
Won’t change that Love is He

Sin…is not wrong doing, it is wrong being, deliberate and emphatic independence of God…
Independence of our designer, creator and restorer.
As was mentioned today; a $50 note that has fallen in the toilet, the kitty litter, the mud, or anywhere else that would make it dirty, would still be of value to me. So is our value to Jesus, no matter how dirty our independence of Him has made us.
If Jesus was kept from death, I would have been kept from life.
Does God have to reveal Himself as I determine, for me to believe Him; or do I believe Him because of how and who He has already revealed Himself to be?
It was my sin that held Him there, until it was accomplished.
His dying breath has brought me life, I know that it is finished.
