OUR SAVIOR LIVES

God could have abandoned us

Left us to die in our sins  

Instead He sent Jesus

our precious Savior

Who volunteered to die

in our place

for we are sinners to the core

He could have abandoned us

in Gethsemane

But His love for us

is unsurpassed

He died a cruel death

on the Cross

He would not let us

die in our sins

But woos us to the Cross

where we are convicted of the evilness

 of our sins

and of the power

of sin

to separate us from God

He leads us to repentance

then offers us forgiveness

in His mercy and grace

 

We worship a living Savior

God raised Him from the dead

Of this we are certain

Remember Thomas, who doubted

Then Jesus asked him

to put His hand in Jesus’ side

and look upon the holes in Jesus’ hands

The apostle became a missionary for Jesus

as did countless followers of Christ

Now, knowing Jesus is the Messiah

we, too, are asked to be missionaries

to spread the Good News

of what Jesus has done

to save us

Let us invite the Holy Spirit

to guide us in all things

Knowing that our loyalty to God

will be tested

before Christ Jesus comes again

    Dear Betsy, Your writing is so wonderful and meaning full! I am so emotional about what Christ has done for us that it makes me cry! Thank you for putting this “out there”. I have some friends who told me that they “are going to take their chances” about their eternity, and I am going to send them your post! I wish everyone would read it! Thanks so much, Love, Linda
