THE GREATEST LOVE

Christ was born to save mankind

From the eternal death we all deserve

He looked beyond our sin-tainted selves

All of humanity’s failed attempts

To keep God’s law

Christ offered Himself

The Lamb of God

To be spit upon

Railed against

Scourged nearly to death

Tried like a criminal

Although He is purer than gold

The people jeered Him

They were of mob mentality

Who didn’t know what they were doing

They had allowed Satan to take control

Crucify Him!  Crucify Him!  they cried

They set Him on the road to Calvary

No human would be acceptable

As a sacrifice before the Father

Christ bore all sin

He felt the scourge of God

As He hung on the cross

Till His breath expired

Christ was laid in the tomb

By a devoted follower

His tomb was sealed

With a heavy stone

Put under centurion guard

Our King of Kings

Could not be held

By the bonds of death

He rose on the third day

Jesus Christ has conquered sin

He’s vanquished death

 Defeated Satan

Christ has given us newness of life

If we would but accept it

RESURRECTION DAY MESSAGE

Happy Resurrection Day! Jesus died and rose again for everyone. Don’t sit on the message. Go tell others what Jesus has done for you in your life.  Ask the Holy Spirit to give you the words to say. Visit a friend and give him or her your testimony.  Keep this in mind every day.

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.
