“For to this you had been named, since Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an instance, that you ought to stick to in His measures ‘Who committed no sin, Nor was deceit discovered in His mouth’ who, when He was reviled, did not revile in return when He suffered, He did not threaten, but committed Himself to Him who judges righteously who Himself bore our sins in His personal physique on the tree, that we, getting died to sins, could possibly reside to righteousness—by whose stripes we are healed. For you had been like sheep going astray, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.” (1 Peter two:21-25)
It is pretty really hard for most of us in this day and time to seriously comprehend all that Christ endured for us on the cross and the time top up to His death on that cross. But He was prepared to do that for you and for me and for absolutely everyone who calls upon His name. “whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13)
Sometimes, I like to place down in the kind of a poem what I want to say about my Savior and Lord and what He has performed indicates to me. Right here is one particular of these feeble attempts:
Oh that there had been words to inform,
Of the Enjoy my Savior has for me.
Could any mere poem hope to express,
How He freely gave His life on that cursed tree.
He settled that day, when and for all,
There can under no circumstances be a single doubt.
His nail scarred hands, His bloody brow,
Demonstrate how our sins He freely purchased.
He could have named down myriad legions,
Of mighty angels to cease the bloody show.
But He freely suffered my discomfort and shame,
Since no one particular else loved us so.
Our sins necessary a fantastic, spotless lamb,
To make recognized that atonement was assured.
And there was no other one particular capable to bear,
The discomfort and suffering He endured.
Jesus lead me to that glorious cross,
To appear upon your beaten and swollen face.
To see the agony You endured for me,
When You gladly and obediently took my spot.
Let me see your spear pierced side,
Exactly where the blood flowed freely down.
And brand in my weak and feeble heart,
The information of the cost You paid for me alone.
Oh let me under no circumstances neglect or misunderstand,
That I have been purchased and paid for with a cost.
That You have forever shown Your like for me,
And I will often know that I owe You my life.
Oh Jesus preserve me close to the sacred cross,
Forever obedient to hear You, and Your glory see.
And if You ought to ask: “Who shall I send?”
I will shout with joy “Here am I Lord, send me!”
Your obedient servant, son, and buddy,
1. Lord thank You for paying the ultimate cost for my sin and for adopting me as you son or daughter even although I have performed practically nothing and can do practically nothing to deserve Your like.
