In my opinion, one of the best Third Day songs ever. Because of its powerful lyrics, I actually find it to be one of the most meaningful songs from anyone. To me, anyway. The heart of this song is remembering what was given to us. Something that we desperately needed, and didn't even know it. Something that saved our eternity. While we were blindly headed for hell, Jesus changed our course.
That's what he gave. This song helps us to recognize that and pushes us to the next step. God does not ask for anything because there is nothing we can give that would be acceptable. But that shouldn't stop our desire to do something for Him anyway. Just because my husband married me doesn't mean I want him to stop showing me he loves me. I feel so honored when he gets me a box of chocolates. And if it were in his heart to give me chocolates every day -- just because that's how much he loves me -- well, you know I wouldn't be complaining.
My favorite line, however, is "Were I to leave, where else would I go?" which echoes Peter's rely to Jesus. Because in reality, we have no choice, as Peter (and Mac Powell) note. But even when there is no choice, and we choose Him, He is blessed. Even though he already married me, and I know he isn't going anywhere, I still love to hear my husband tell me that there is no one else he would rather marry than me.
I would love to give God all I can. It will never be enough. But it will be as precious to Him as my children's artwork on the fridge is to me.
