Thank you for joining me on day 6 of our 20 Days of Worship Through Song series. Today’s song is Your Love is Extravagant by Casting Crowns.
According the Oxford dictionary the word extravagant means lacking restraint in spending money or using resources, costing too much, exceeding what is reasonable or appropriate; absurd.
I think this is the perfect word to describe the love that drove Christ to this extreme sacrifice. The ripping of His flesh caused by the lashing, the ridicule, the rejection. He loves you and me that much.
Oh what is man that you are mindful of Him?
True extravagant love.
My husband and I have been married for nearly 21 years. We married at a young age, and have seen each other grow up. When I hear this song I can’t help to think of our marriage, and how it is to mirror the relationship between the church and Christ. As the bride we are to stay pure, faithful and we must be ready for the bridegrooms arrival.
This song speaks of an incredible romance, an intimate relationship, an absurd sacrifice.
Oh how grateful I am for that sacrifice.
