Fences we build to keep the unwanted out.
Fences to protect our possessions.
Fences to keep, to hold.
But fences keep the glory of God out.
Fences keep the presence of God hidden.
Jesus broke down those fences we built.
In Christ there are no fences.
In Christ there is no need to hide.
For Christ took our shame and gave us his innocence.
Christ took our fear and gave us his love.
Christ took our condemnation and gave us his freedom.
Christ took our captivity and gave us his liberty.
Christ took our guilt and gave us his righteousness.
For his life is freedom from the captivity of the fences we built.
His life in us is the glory of God without limits.
