I am Barabbas, sinner extraordinaire! Murderer, thief, all that is disgusting next to Jesus. And for me, FOR ME, He died . . not only died but endured horrific torture, for one such as me, so I could be released from death, from the sentence of condemnation and blackness and hellfire forever. Unbelievable.
Why? Why would i make that same choice, to BE Barabbas when I could be like Jesus? Incomprehensible and inexplicable - truly!
What great sacrifice, what great love for me, the chief of sinners.
Oh what great love that produces in my heart for You, Jesus . . . .
