Exchange – Swap Shirts?

Wednesday March 28th:  ’Exchange’

He swapped my shirt of sin                                       

for his

of grace,

of holiness.

My disobedient number He now wears

with pride,

while I

wear his (occasionally

or not);
I stain it, muddy it,

but it is

His,-

Pure Grace

that scored and scored again

against my pride.

 

I played to Dis-Obey,-

scored goals against my Self, my Team,-

but He

is on our side,

Full Forward to

New Life.

 

Olé is now my cry,

not tears.

 

He wears my shirt

with joy

and I wear His.
