2-25-14 Father, Forgive Them

Father Forgive Them 02

When Jesus had been beaten, scorned and mocked

Then hung upon the cruel and rugged cross,

He saw the crowd and soldiers as they flocked,

Those naive to this implicated loss.

Some did not know the evil they performed

To crucify the perfect Lamb of God;

So ignorant the prophesies performed,

They did what they were told with just a nod,

And even on the cross compassion swelled

Within the Savior’s faintly beating heart;

He called His Father where in Heaven dwelled:

Forgive them, they are unaware their part.

Such love that Jesus had unto the end

To intercede as our eternal Friend.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Then said Jesus,

Father,

forgive them;

for they know not what they do.

And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.

Luke 23:34 KJV

12-1-14 If God Be For Us

the-cross-and-victory

A war is raging right outside your door;

It may be even in your own abode,

Or further nigh within your very core.

It’s Satan fighting hard to be unbowed.

He has the souls of most within his grip,

And we as soldiers of the living Son

Do battle for them all with gospel scrip

Redeemed upon the cross already won.

If God is on our side, who dare oppose?

He sacrificed His Son that we might live

And victory is gained for those who chose

To follow Christ with all His love to give.

Be brave, my brother, what is there to fear?

Now share the Good News boldly, loud and clear!

 If God be for us, who can be against us?

Romans 8:31
