Ignorance is such a deceiving cloak
to seeing just how guilty we really are.
We think because we are good in our eyes
that God agrees that we are.
But even God required a sacrifice of blood
for those who sinned in ignorance.
It did matter to Him for a heart
to want forgiveness through repentance,
so much so that He gave His ONLY Son
to shed the ONLY truly innocent blood,
that ignorant sinners may be forgiven
but ONLY after washed in that pure blood.
How mistaken we are to think
we’re too good and innocent for death.
The ONLY perfect person gave His life
so that we may draw eternal breath.
