Details: This is the first song I got to listen from the album and you would know, from the first time I heard it, it captivated my taste in music. This song made me to discover more from Cory Asbury.

Not only the melody but the entire song will move you. But what reckless love really mean. Here in our country, reckless consider as negative word such as reckless driving or reckless decision. I tried to Google it and I found, “without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action.” That is not a really good to think of doing something without minding what would happen.

In God’s case, we believe that He knows everything, what makes it reckless is the result that might be difficult for us to think such as sacrificing your own Son for others. Can you ever think of that action? that’s reckless.

But not in God’s unfathomable thoughts, He knows that for us to be saved, He need to sacrifice someone to pay for our sin. And even this sound reckless to others, for us, He did it without hesitation.
