Gritty

She […] laid him in a manger, because there was no lodging available for them (Luke 2:7; NLT).

As he was praying, the appearance of his face was transformed, and his clothes became dazzling white (Luke 9:29; NLT).

He was in such agony of spirit that his sweat fell to the ground like great drops of blood (Luke 22:44; NLT).

When they came to a place called The Skull, they nailed him to the cross(Luke 23:33; NLT).

The ransom he paid was not mere gold or silver. It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God (1 Peter 1:19; NLT).

What could have been more gritty
Than your birth, Lord?

What could have been more treasured
Than your breath?

What could have been more costly
Than your life, Lord?

What could have been more brutal
Than your death?

What could have been more dazzling
Than your light, Lord?

What could have been more earnest
Than your love?

What could have been more bitter
Than your anguish?

What could have been more precious
Than your blood?
