His Sacrifice paid our debt!

And when they had crucified Him, they parted His garments, casting lots upon them, what every man should take. And it was the third hour, and they crucified Him. And the superscription of His accusation was written over, "THE KING OF THE JEWS". And with Him they crucify two thieves; the one on His right hand, and the other on His left. And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And He was numbered with the transgressors. Mark 15:24-28

I see agony in Your Holy face
and I cannot understand at all
Why You chose to save the human race
who so miserably did fall

It is Your unspeakable LOVE

I see Your Blood on hands and feet
dripping down that rugged cross
Your head, where blood and thorns do meet
Is bruised to save my soul from loss

It is Your immeasurable LOVE

I hear Your voice, a desperate cry
in anguish calling for relief
It echoes in the heavens high
It makes man shiver in disbelief

It is Your unselfish LOVE

At that God-forsaken place You died
You shed Your Precious Blood for me
to save me from my sin and pride
You cleansed me .... You set me free

It is Your Redeeming LOVE

No human will ever understand
While Your life-blood was flowing away
You still reached out Your Holy hand
To rescue those who're going astray

It is Your Godly LOVE

He is not here, but is risen: remember how He spake unto you when He was yet in Galilee, saying, "The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again."  And they remembered His words, And returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all the rest. Luke 24:6-9

Rejoice, for Christ is risen and we'll soon see Him face to face. Jesus, the Christ is returning for His Bride. HALLELUJAH!

Blessed are those servants, whom the Lord when He cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that He shall gird Himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. Luke 12:37

There are some amongst us who like the benefits and blessings of the Cross of Christ and His suffering, but don't want to crucify their own "old flesh"; the sinful nature one still carries with him.

The such like to get the blessings and stay in their comfort zone, continuing in their old lifestyle, sin, habits etc. This will never work, since the flesh and the Spirit are enemies of each other.

The idea of transformed lives, through holiness and following Christ in self denial, goes against the flesh and oneselves. Creating a new type of Christianity; combining flesh and Spirit presents a pitfall. It can be compared with a broken or damaged vessel.

What we will see next is the blind leading the lame in their deception, both tumbling down in the pit of spiritual disaster.

Be watchful that you don't miss the Crown of Life.

Dear Dr. Trudy,
Your poem truly blessed me. Draws me closer to the Lord once again to know all that HE went through for such as I and a multitude of others.
Trusting that this Blog will bless many and trust that many will be ready for when Christ comes back for His church.
In Him,
