I See Love...

The song "I see Love" by Third Day, Steven Curtis Chapman and Mercy Me , from the Passion of the Christ CD is...well...in a word, Incredible.
The Lord taught me long ago about viewing the cross as His incredible Love and Sacrifice for me, but nothing could put into words what I felt until I heard that song. Making the cross the center of what I believe is absolutely a necessity when viewing Christ. If I can stand in the middle of a storm and view the cross, the my heart is centered and focused in His will. When I can't see the cross, then I know my own strength is leading me and I need to get right with the Lord. It is impossible for me to view the cross and still view myself.
I don't think life was always like that...in fact, I know it wasn't. What changed? Or I guess the better question would be, who changed? I DID! God never changes (Hebrews 13:8), so I had to change! If I want to be more like Christ, doesn't that automatically call me to change? Unless of course, your near perfection, and I don't think you are, so yes, it should cause you to change and you should want to change. And why do I want to be more like Christ? Because the Bible tells me so? (yes, it does tell you so, but that's not my main reason); Because my pastor tells me I should? (Another great reason, but not my motivation); Because of my Love for Jesus Christ?...YES! And even more...His Great Love for ME! ME!? A sinner, condemned, unlcean, unrighteous, unholy, selfish...I could go on forever, but I think you get the point...ME! Karen! God's precious child! Now that is Love. It all goes back to His Love.
Enjoy the words to the song, and worship Him!
In Christ-
Karen

I See Love
by Third Day, Steven Curtis Chapman, and Mercy Me

Some see a teacher; Standing on a hill
Speaking words of wisdom
Some see a healer; Reaching out his hand
To give sight to a blind man
Some see a dreamer; Wasting his life
On what can never be
Some see a fool
Dying for his dreams

Chorus:
But I see love
I see love
Light of heaven breaking through
Well I see grace
I see God's face
Shining pure and perfect love
When I see you
I see love

Some see a prisoner; Alone before his judge
With no one to defend him
Some see a victim; Beaten and abused
With all the world against him
Some see a martyr; Carrying his cross
For what he believes
Some see a hero
Who set his people free (!!!)

Chorus again

With your last breath
I see love
Through your death
I see love
I see peace in the eyes of the king
I see hope in your suffering
I see a calm in the center of the storm
I see a Saviour

I see love
I see love
Light of heaven breaking through
I see grace
I see God's face
Shining pure and perfect love
When I see you
I see love
When I see you
I see heaven breaking through
See Gods face
Shining pure and perfect love
When I see you
When I see you
When I see you
I see love
I see love
When I see

Some see Him walking from an empty grave

Janice-
Let me know if you find it on itunes, my husband has been looking for a while and can't seem to locate it. He said the other songs aren't as good, so he doesn't want to buy the whole CD.
