Even Death On A Cross
Free to Share
Author requests article critique
Created for LIFE by LIFE itself
We chose instead to defile His Creation
Bringing Death and its Curse upon us
Through our sin and our rebellion
Though He knew He could not die for us, unless,
He first was born of human flesh
Christ chose, even still, to love us as only He can love
By taking upon Himself what, by all rights,
He should never have to bear ~
An eternal moment of separation from the Father
As Death stripped Him of His righteous, holy place
Trusting in the faithfulness of the Father
And His promise to restore
In loving obedience,
Our Savior hung utterly alone on that tree at Calvary
Under the very curse of God
While the mortal Son of Man cried out ~
"My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken me?"
The only begotten Son of the Father,
Having taken upon Himself what, by all rights,
Uttered our names in prayer
On whispers of His dying breath
So, really, life is not fair at all
When, by all rights, our sentence should be Death,
Grace stepped in and humbly took our place
Obedient unto Death ~ even Death on a cross
All to grant us LIFE eternal

Scripture Path ...
Genesis 2:16-17 The LORD God commanded the man, saying, "From any tree of the garden you may eat freely; but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die."
Genesis 3:14 The LORD God said, "Because you have done this, cursed are you ..."
Galatians 3:13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us--for it is written, "CURSED IS EVERYONE WHO HANGS ON A TREE"--
Mark 15:34 At the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, " ELOI, ELOI, LAMA SABACHTHANI?" which is translated, "MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?"
Philippians 2:6-8 Christ Jesus, who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.

It's a good time of year to be "reminded" of the reason Christ came to earth as a baby. He knew as He came that He would die on the cross. How wonderful that He humbled Himself to become a dependent baby! God bless you. You make such attractive pages... Helen

The Spirit of God confirms the same understanding within my own heart , Jody .We have His Witness and His Light to guide us --even though we are not worthy ,He does this and will do this until He has gathered all of His Sheep . This was written with thoughtfulness and love . May it bless others as it did me. Jesus changed everything for us .
Faithful and True .
