TITLE: The Debt for Sin

Only someone free and innocent who had done nothing wrong was able to pay the cost and the debt for was to die upon the cross. And so God gave His only begotten Son to be crucified.

They hung Him high, and stretched Him wide; they pierced Him in His side. Out of that side blood and water came streaming down. It went into the earth way down in the ground!

Huge rocks split, gross darkness covered the land, greatly shaken was the earth! Unusual was His death! But unusual was His birth! Why more than twelve legions of angels at any given notice were ready to crack the sky but Jesus kept on dying, He was dying for you and I.

I can imagine seeing Him as he yielded up the ghost! Jesus! The Son of God was dead! With the crown of thorns that they placed up on His head. Standing there looking up at Jesus with trembling and great fear, the people cried “ This truly was the Son of God that walked among here!”


But oh Glory Hallelujah “In three days
I shall rise” Don’t you remember the words that Jesus said? That’s why the angel spoke these words “ Why seek the living among those who are dead?”

Grave where is your victory, death what happen to your sting? Jesus rose with all powers in His hands, Why, He can do anything! He proved that life is stronger than death, love is stronger than hate and the truth is stronger than a lie.

The joy that He gives overwhelms our sorrows that make us hang down our heads and cry. And so this invitation stand open to Whosoever will, you may freely come. For God So Loved The World, That’s why He gave His only begotten Son!

Thanks be to God!

This was a beautiful entry for this Easter season.

I'd love to read more of your own thoughts, though--this had several familiar Bible verses scattered throughout. And it's a good practice to eliminate most exclamation points, and to count on your own strong word choices to convey your strong ideas.

Beautiful! It's poetic prose.
Maybe you should try to rework it into the lyrics of a song.
Good job. Keep writing.

Unique style. Be sure to proof-read, there were a few small problems,like omitted words which the reader had to fill in. Nice piece. :)
