The Story
© Mary Elder-Criss
Sept. 2003

I Will Go

Sadly, they watch as all creation turns away from their will. As the Father begins to shake His head from side to side, the Son lays a gentle hand upon His arm. As tears of sorrow fall from His Father’s eyes, the Son smiles tenderly, and says, “I will go.” (50)


Unto You

In the dark, the shepherds fearfully watch as the peaceful night sky is suddenly filled with angels singing. As they tremble in awe, they are reassured, “Tonight is the night, in this city of David.” “Glory be to God, for unto you, a Savior is born.” (46)


King or Prophet?

They wondered at this man, who spoke so strangely. Some said He was the Son of God, the Messiah, but many doubted. He was not what they expected, surely the Kingdom He would set up would be an earthly one, yet those things did not seem to concern Him. (49)


The Gift

Mocked and taunted, with nails piercing His body, He lifts His eyes to the Heavens, and suffers in silence. As His time is finished, He asks for forgiveness for His tormentors, and by this act, it is accomplished. A Roman centurion spoke truthfully, “Truly, this was the Son of God.” (50)


Acceptance

Quietly, she slips into the rear of the church, feeling totally unworthy, with no hope of redemption, yet knowing she must come. The shadow of the cross offers love and acceptance. She approaches the altar, tears in her eyes, bows down before Him, and by grace, is set free. (49)

Wonderful sequence, Mary! I believe "I Will Go" is my favorite too. ~ Violet

Mary, these were beautiful. I was very touched, especially by I Will Go. Blessings, Amy

Mary, my favourite is 'I will go' and 'Acceptance'. The Gift is a bit too much of a statement. King or Prophet? - try and change the last sentence to a solution, a conclusion. At the moment it reads like a question and leaves the reader hanging - does that make sense?

I am SO impressed! and touched.
