No Greater Love

Is life in vain?
Are we ghosts rattling chains?
When we get what we want
Are the problems still the same?
Cause my hands can't heal
While I'm holding on so tight
And my heart won't care enough
To pick a better fight

Show me the beauty of a life
Show me the beauty of a life
Show me the beauty of a life

No greater love
No greater love
Can you say there's no greater love?

Is it still my turn?
I think I'm the last one left to learn
That the life I lose
Is the least of my concerns

Show me the beauty of a life
Show me the beauty of a life
Show me the beauty of a life

No greater love
No greater love
Can you say there's no greater love?

No greater love
No greater love
Can you say there's no greater love?

So show me the beauty of a life
Show me the beauty of a life
Show me the beauty of a life laid down

Show me the beauty of a life laid down
Laid down
Show me the beauty of a life

No greater love
No greater love
Can you say there's no greater love?
No greater love
No greater love
Can you say there's no greater love?

So show me the beauty of a life
Show me the beauty of a life
Show me the beauty of a life laid down


Jars of Clay -The Shelter album

I was driving home when this song came on through my Zune.  It made me think.

The ultimate example of sacrifice is Christ, of course.   The cross.  
Since I am to be an imitator of Christ {as a Christian} then it begs the question...am I showing this kind of sacrificial love?  Am I willing to put my own desires, plans, schedule aside to serve someone else?  

Lord, give me
           a heart full of compassion,
                         eyes to see the needs,  
                                 and a life laid down!
