Jesus was the son of God
He was also one of us
He felt the same pain and sorrow
That anyone of us does
The thought of what Jesus went through
Makes my heart burn and ache
What He went through for me and you
The strength and love it had to take
He could have said “enough” at any time
Legions of angels would have come
To put a stop to such a crime–
Then the devil would have won
Jesus died upon that cross
It seemed like such a terrible loss
Not even the apostles knew
That Jesus was not yet through
The Resurrection was the proof
What He had told them was the truth
He had arisen, He was alive
O death, where is your victory?
O death where is your sting?
COMMENT ON THE CROSS
The cross represents Jesus’ victory over sin and death.
It is the greatest symbol that Christianity has.
Jesus could have avoided his death but He knew why He
had come into the world.
We had to have both, the cross and the resurrection.
The cross cleansed us of our sins, The resurrection
gave us eternal life.
He had to be sinless, the lamb of God. It was a
spiritual transaction. The human race sinned, it
had to be a sinless human who paid the penalty for
Someday I hope to understand the spiritual warfare
that is still going on today. Someday I will fully
understand what a great price Jesus paid for me and
how much love He had for me.
On the cross Jesus became the sacrifice for my sins,
He did what I could not do for myself. Because of Him
I have eternal life.
Because he was resurrected I know that God accepted
the sacrifice. I was guilty, now I am free.
Thank you for the cross, Lord.
And being found in human form,
he humbled himself by becoming
obedient to the point of death,
even death on a cross
