Jesus Dying

Updated on August 26, 2012

See my Jesus

Draped across His throne

Bathed in a beautiful light

When all around darkness is owned.

His body is limp.

He is not breathing.

Bones are broken.

The blood is seeping.

He is covered with bruises.

Gaping wounds litter his entire body.

I put him here. I did not care

His precious love was my needed commodity.

Could he really love me?

Why did he die?

His death was to show our Father’s love for humanity.

Jesus died to break satan’s lies.

My sin is no longer. Your sin is no longer.

Praise God in three.

The blood of Jesus is stronger.

Brothers, from our sin we are made clean.

      Yes, we have been washed in the blood of Jesus! Praise Him. The victory is won. He is no longer on that cross, as He is risen! Awesome poem to glorify our King. Voted Way Up In His Love, Faith Reaper

      "Praise God in three." Amen. This is the entire gospel within your lines.

      I have often heard people say "Jesus died for me:" I wish someone sane person would explain how a person who allegedly died two-thousand years ago could have died for me. The logic is not there. suppose I went to the market and said at the check out counter, " my father who worked here twenty years ago paid for my purchase, do you think that would fly?

      Loved it! How beautiful a reminder of what it is all about. God's redemption plan set so many years ago transcends time and applies to our life today. What a story! Voted up and beautiful.

      Teaches, Thanks for reading. Glad you liked it. I appreciate the votes. It is so amazing to me that so long ago, Jesus knew us and loved us but still chose to give his life for us.
