JESUS CHRIST SAVES

Jesus’ gift of life to us
The eternal life we lost in sin
He offered to us at the Cross
Because He loves us endlessly.
He suffered total separation from God
Fearing it may be His eternal grave.
Yet He clung to this horrible death
Because He knew there was no other way
To appease God’s wrath against the mar
The enormity of sin.

Jesus’ resurrection shone so bright
To all who would believe in Him.
His ever mastery of love and life
He revealed in full glory.

Those who love Him will reign with Him
As saints and even priests,
To complete the justice and the love
Christ proved at Calvary.

      Jackie,

      Thank you for this telling comment on my blog piece about the Resurrection for you must value Jesus Christ’s immensely difficult work in saving us. It surely is a beautiful love he has for us. I wanted to express the beauty in that act.
