Blood in the Water

The first drop
     of blood in the water¹
Of God's redemptive plan
Fell when His Son
     was born of woman,
And evil's nostrils
     flared with great

The last drop
     of blood in the water
Of God's plan of salvation
Fell when Jesus'
     side was pierced,
And evil's brow
     rose in great

A life for new life
     was always the plan,
Blood to blood
     in the waters of vulnerability,²
From beginning to end,
     darkness turned to

1 John 5:6-7
John 19:31-37
Hebrews 2:6-18
Philippians 2:5-8

¹'blood in the water' is an
expression for when one is
vulnerable and one's enemies
can figuratively 'smell it'

²God made Himself vulnerable,
from beginning to end in the
life of Jesus the Christ, for
our redemption and new life
apart from sin.
