Even though Easter’s over, the message of what Christ has done for us applies to and affects our daily lives! Check out this poem about our Savior’s work at the cross.
The Son of God stood in man’s place,
Silently suffering human disgrace.
Falsely accused and condemned by self righteousness’ spite,
He was the One who would save us from sin’s merited plight.
The crown they presented the King consisted of thorns.
Wholly undeserved were the stripes which for our sake He bore.
Abused and tortured, nails pierced through
His hands and feet to make all things new,
For He esteemed nothing too great of a price
To rescue the perishing, to give them life.
The Son of God nailed to the tree –
God’s grace displayed for all to see.
Man’s sin weighed upon Him, yet they stood and scoffed
As He gave up His life for them there on that cross.
Criminals hung both left and right,
People taunting at the sight.
Despised and scorned, rejected, betrayed –
All part of the price He paid.
He bought back man at a high cost.
He gave His life to ransom the lost.
The Son of God knew the time had come
To lay down His life as a gift of love.
Darkness clouded over the sky.
“It is finished!” came the Savior’s cry.
He breathed His last, head bowed low.
The veil was torn so all would know
That there was nothing to stand between them and God any longer.
At the cross, His relentless love for us proved itself stronger
Than any sin we commit, than any wrong that we’ve done.
To save and redeem us, God sent His own Son.
