The Cross Of Mercy & Grace

What could Jesus possibly see in me?
It was for my sin, that He died on Calvary.

Calvary gladly took Him in my place,
even though I saw myself as a disgrace.

A disgrace to Him for all the things I had done,
yet He would have died the same, for just one.

Knowing that I was in need of a Savior,
and not just anyone would have God’s favor.

God, Himself, in flesh and blood, like us,
knew from His heart what must be done.

The spotless Lamb would have to be sacrificed,
the Purest of all. His Son, Jesus Christ.

Although His death wasn’t for nought,
it was our lives He bought on the Cross.

Without His death and resurrection,
we would still have a death sentence.

Our lifeless spirits would lose its meaning,
for without Jesus, our souls would be careening.

Our Heavenly Father and Creator of all,
perceives things differently, great, and small.

He focuses on the part of what we don’t see,
which is the heart of every human being.

You see, He loved us before our conception,
knowing the Father’s heart, He has no exceptions.

Why, then did He send Jesus His Son?
To redeem us from every sin we’ve done!

When the veil was torn in half, from top to bottom,
the expression shown was more than they could fathom!

The high priest entering in the temple that day,
had no idea he would be running the other way!

This torn veil revealed God’s love for us,
which opened up Heaven for believers of Jesus.

We did not deserve mercy and grace,
but in His infinite love, He took our place.

It is hard for us to conceive someone else taking our fall,
but no matter how you perceive it Jesus did die for ALL.

What will you do if Christ should walk your way?
Won’t you take His hand today?

Don’t wait till it’s too late!

Isaiah 53:5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

2 Corinthians 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
