Unglamorous: Act 2

Cause him to suffer – our words, the Father’s will
Righteousness personified… and rejected
Upon him? The punishment that brought us peace
Crushed not for what he did, but for our iniquities
Innocent blood for the guilty – hammers in our hands, souls spattered
Father, forgive them
Into your hands I commit my spirit
Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?
Death

About ryan85

A son, a brother, a husband, a father of eight, and a friend. A follower of Jesus Christ. A fan of the Seminoles and all teams Atlanta. I write, I read, and teach when I can. I prefer red pens. I'm easily distracted. I've lived in Augusta, GA, northern Minnesota, the beautiful western NC mountains, and Tallahassee, FL - Go 'Noles. I played football for FSU, was on the national championship team in 1999, and took a few snaps with the Pittsburgh Steelers. My favorite colors are fluorescent yellow, and Garnet & Gold. I drive a minivan and think it's cool.
