Go The Distance

Commemorative post, I guess. And a big reminder to myself, in many ways. Especially in the wake of all the Passion of the Christ stuff, I think we might be forgetting to see the event in its celebratory light as well.

Be moved, be touched, but also be glad.

Now if only I can find a way to make me not hate every waking moment I spend in a church. I don't know why, I do. I hate the place and most of the people there. I hate their self-righteous rhetoric, the way they try to emotionally blackmail me, the way things are run. I'm not saying I hate the individuals, I just generally don't like people when they're in "Christian-mode". I don't even like a lot of good friends when they're in that mode. And I hate the way many Bible-totting people are pretentious idiots. There, I've said it. It's probably just me.

But that's not the point of this Musing.

"Go The Distance" - Clay Aiken

The Father and the Son stepped out
Looked down at the world below
A distant world where sin-strong arms had struck a fatal blow
There had to be a sacrifice
Across a lonely hill
Someone had to span the globe
So Jesus said "I will"

I will go the distance
I will go that far
I will give up everything to bring them where you are
Even though I could choose the path of least resistance
Father I will take the cross
I will go the distance

To think about His sacrifice leaves me with a choice to make
So many stand just out of reach
With eternity at stake
I can be the go-between, walk the extra mile
If just one should find The Way
Then it's been worth the while

I will go the distance
I will go that far
I will give up everything to bring them where you are
Even though I could choose the path of least resistance
Father I will take the cross
I will go the distance

Father I will take the cross
I will go the distance
