Jesus had come to be one of us, perfect in relationship with God, the Father. Jesus lived his life as example that Man could walk with God in perfect unity. Then, he traded that life to fulfill covenant promises made so that we can have that same life of unity with God, the Father. Because of what Jesus did, we can be one with the Father; if we accept it and walk in it. Many, too many, are passionate in their belief that what they are doing is right; even when it is wrong.

I sat
In survey of all
I had value
Worth
Position 

I fell
Seated below everyone else
Least of all
Debunked
Placeless 

I did
Making my own way
I labored in vain
To no affect
Resultless 

I was
In isolation I existed
No one to dress my wounds
No succor
Alone 

I cried
In desperate hope, anguish
A void within crying in hollow
Lost in ether
No echo 

Redemptio!
Redemptio!
Pater meus!
Redemptio! 

I died
The self ended, despair
The void stretched hopeless
Lost in death
No self 

I heard
A voice speaking
In my behalf, reasoning
Cost weighed
Price paid

 I lived
A kinsman claimed me
What was lost regained
In full returned
Missing naught 

I praised
Ransomed and revalued
Judged and doomed
Counted equal
Redemption
