The Cost

Jesus trashed the tables
Selling sacrifice animals
At the Temple
Because a sacrifice
That costs nothing
Is worth exactly
What it cost
And God is not
Interested in empty
Ritual offered to Him
With no passion
Motions gone through
Without love driving them
It’s all empty, meaningless
Don’t just repeat things
Over and over mindlessly
That just makes us
All a bunch of Pharisees
Yelling about our own
Accomplishments
Using God for
Our own ends
That is just a bunch of
Useless self importance
Jesus came to be
A real sacrifice
The kind that only
Our God could provide
A piece of Himself
His only Son
Sent down to Earth
To grow, teach, and die
All for us, out of love
At the highest cost
