They placed a crown of thorns on
His head, forcing Him to carry
His own cross up Golgotha’s hill.
The perfect Son of God,
cocooned in human flesh;
nailed to the cruel Cross of Calvary.
“Seems like such a loss,” they mocked.
“If He’s the Son of God, let Him come down and save Himself!”
Jesus could have come down that day,
yet He chose to stay;
laying down His life for you and me.
Then as life’s blood ebbed away…Jesus cried out,
“It is finished! Father into Your hands, I commit my spirit.”
Look beyond Calvary’s tree…
to the veil in the temple…
torn from top to bottom…
making it possible for
you and me to enter the Holy of Holies…
The Most Holy Place of the Living God.
He descended into hell.
On the third day, Jesus rose from the grave.
Now with Godhead’s Glory returned,
Jesus appeared to the disciples and
other witnesses in His glorified body,
Urging them to wait for the promised
Holy Spirit who empowers with the
Message of “Good News” to a lost world.
The Son of God has come down to man,
revealed the love of the Father…
made forgiveness and restoration possible.
One day we shall know Him as He is.
We will gaze upon His face,
In the place He has prepared…
A place in the Father’s eternal house.
A new heaven and earth…
No more tears, pain, sorrow, or death.
