Jesus-on-Cross

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 3:16 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

For God SO loved the world He gave His Son;

His One begotten Son the world He gave,

That whosoever shall believe the One

Shall never perish, never know the grave.

Christ took all of your sins onto the cross;

He gave His life for you and willingly.

Because He loved you SO He suffered loss,

But it was worth it all to set you free.

An everlasting life belongs to those

Who put their faith in God’s begotten Son,

Enduring death and in three days arose;

For God loved you SO much this all was done.

Claim Jesus as your Savior and believe

God sacrificed His Son for your reprieve.

~~~~~~~~~~~

REMEMBER: Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. (John 15:13)

12-6-14 Manifested

crucifixion

Would you, my friend, send out your only son,

To such a place where he’d be scourged and killed,

To save a wayward world who’d largely shun

The love he gave to have your will fulfilled?

God knew the world was doomed, so steeped in sin,

His Son would have to die so we could live,

And not just die, but sacrificed wherein

We’d not just live, but He our sins forgive.

How great a love is this! It makes me weep

To comprehend the pain we put Him through,

But still, O friend! God’s will He still did keep

That we might have salvation, living new.

God’s love for us was manifested so

He sent his Son to us so we could know.

~~~~~~~~~~~

In this was manifested the love of God toward us,

because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world,

that we might live through him.

1 John 4:9 KJV
