Privileged or Desperate

Only one high priest served in the Temple.
God appointed the one to succeed him.
His arrangement and order was simple.
To disobey brought consequences grim.

Jewish worshipers could stand near the front.
The Gentiles could only stand at the back.
The Jews thought them “dogs” that just did not count.
They were desperate and had quite a lack.

When Christ Jesus died, God tore the curtain
From top to bottom as no man could do.
Privilege can’t save anyone -  certain.
Nationality counts for nothing -  true!

Privileged and desperate, come to Him
God’s bulldozer has plowed through all the walls.
The privileged should not think to presume
Nor should the desperate ever have qualms.

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only
begotten Son, that WHOEVER believes in Him should
not perish but have eternal life – for God did not send
the Son into the world to judge the world; but that the
world should be saved through Him.”
John 3:16, 17 (NASB)
