In Christ, Appreciation for the Cross

We sometimes wonder why life is filled with a never-ending series of problems and trials.

But we know that we can face the upcoming hurdles of the week with God's strength.

The Bible tells us the root cause of sufferings in this world - sin.

In general, most people view sin as outward acts of perpetration against the law or social moral standards such as murder, rape, robbery, gossip, adultery and so on and so forth...

However, those acts are just symptoms of sin...

Sin is actually rebellion against God... In other words, rejecting God as ruler and king of our lives and stubbornly living lives our own way.

Todayís poem was inspired by a sermon series delivered by Sam Allberry in my churchís annual camp in 2012.

In Christ: Appreciation for the Cross
By Joanne Liaw Sook Ling (7th May 2012)

In Adam we inherited the curse of sin
That corrupts the world which we live in
One act of rebellion brought such great pain
Nothing could wash away sinís dreadful stain

But not all was lost for God had a plan
Christ, Godís only Son, descended He from heavín
Through the obedience of one righteous man
To death on the cross with nail-pierced hands

Christ took the punishment that we deserved
Instead of death eternal life he reserved
For a people he has chosen to preserve
Jesus, our risen Saviour we will serve!

Now we remember Christís death on the Cross
Communion reminds us of the great cost
Of Christ precious blood spilled at Calvary
Amazing love, how can this be?!

Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man (Adam), and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned... For if, because of one man's trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ. (Romans 5:12,17)

Although Christ has saved us from our sin, that does not mean that we are immune to the problems of this life for we are still living in a fallen world. But God gives us comfort and strength to go through them.
