Crucifixion between two malefactors

The crucifixion of Christ between two malefactors
The centre of controversy; think of the other factors.
On display between two thieves;
A severe punishment, to only rob, I believe.
And yet Barabas a notorious criminal that kills;
He walks away, corrupt justice; man’s selfish will.
Between Christ or Barabas to set one free;
A corrupted murderer, Christ paid the fee.
Law and order, how did they decide?
God’s Word was a tool to manipulate in stride.
Without faith, impossible to please a living LORD;
KING of kings, how righteousness has soared
Whatever is honourable just and true;
Christ within for all to do.
The crucifixion of a sinless man
Paid the fee for my soul to stand.
