Sidewalk Prophets

I have this song by Sidewalk Prophets stuck in my head

It's Called:  "You Love Me Anyway"

And the lyrics at the end haunt me:

"I am the man who yelled out from the crowd

For your blood to be spilled on this earth shaking ground

I turned away with a smile on my face

with this sin in my heart tried to bury my grace

And then alone in the night I still called out for you so ashamed of my life

But you love me anyway"

Isn't this so true?

We have such wicked hearts.

We deny Jesus, we deny God

especially publicly.

Publicly we might use his name as a curse word.

We may even curse Him when we are angry or sad.

And we do what we know to be wrong  when we are with our friends

But then when we are alone, we are ashamed.

And we call out for Him

And yet now matter what we've done.

No matter how hate filled we are.

He forgives


He loves us anyway.

Here is a great Video of the song:

The lyrics I referenced are at:    2:37
