This is Your Savior by City Harvest Church

(Verse 1)
They shouted “crucify”
As He stumbled on road
Weight of the world, all the pain
The cross became His Load
He was innocent, yet accused and blamed
Sent to save a fallen world, to bear all our shame

(Verse 2)
They shouted “crucify”
As he climbed the lonely hill
Bearing the shame and the mocking crowd
While heaven and earth stood still
He was innocent, yet accused and blamed
Sent to save a fallen word, to bear all our shame

(Chorus)
This is your Savior
Pure Love of Heaven
Sent to Die on Calvary, to bear the sins of all
Rejected, cursed to die, Love silently Endured
His blood poured out an offering
At the foot of the Cross

(Verse 3)
They put a crown of thorns Upon His bleeding head
Whipped Him as He struggled on
He uttered not a word

(Pre-Chorus)
He was innocent, yet accused and blamed
Sent to save a fallen world, to bear all our shame

(Chorus)
This is your Savior
Pure Love of Heaven
Sent to Die on Calvary, to bear the sins of all
Rejected, cursed to die, Love silently Endured
His blood poured out an offering
At the foot of the Cross

(Bridge)
For the brokenhearted
For the poor, the weak
For the blind and searching
He shed His Blood for you and me

(Chorus)
This is your Savior
Pure Love of Heaven
Sent to Die on Calvary, to bear the sins of all
Rejected, cursed to die, Love silently Endured
His blood poured out an offering
At the foot of the Cross

Why You Should Never, Ever, Ever Get A Tattoo (but Having a Baby is Fine)

Originally posted on The Ugly Volvo:

I’m not super pro-tattoo or anti-tattoo.  I’ve debated getting one in the past but never that seriously.  But my mother is vehemently anti-tattoo.  Listed below are the reasons my mother has always given me for why I shouldn’t get a tattoo.

And I understand that she’s from a different generation.  And I love my mother very much.  She’s a really wonderful person and I’m not saying none of them is a legitimate reason, but I’m saying that after having a child, I find it really hard to take any of them seriously.

And so in case you were headed out to the tattoo parlor as we speak, here are:

10 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD NEVER, EVER, EVER GET A TATTOO ACCORDING TO MY MOTHER (but having a baby is fine)

1.  “A Tattoo is Forever”

Yes, a tattoo is forever.  Totally forever!  Except that a tattoo can, if needed, be erased with a laser.

 *Some of you read that and immediately thought, "I am so exhausted, please I need a laser that can temporarily erase a three year-old," but sorry, that is not a thing that exists.  
No…

Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee stood and was praying this to himself: ‘God, I thank You that I am not like other people: swindlers, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector.” Luke 18:10-11

One wonders how the disciple Matthew, a former tax collector, must have felt upon hearing this parable.

Jesus most certainly told the story to convey a message to the Pharisees: those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who are humble will be exalted.

He also wanted to communicate to those in this honor and shame culture that those who were traditionally the subject of finger-pointing, shaming and humiliating were those who Jesus himself invited to the table to eat the Bread…
