“LOVE’S GIFT”


Why did Jesus go to the cross?
I ponder this question deep in my
heart. Why did he have to suffer
for you and me?could there have
been any other way that sins
price could have been be paid?

Love so Pure and Holy died that day…

Why was He mocked and betrayed?
Oh The Precious Lamb of God.
Would I be the one too who spit upon His Precious
Face?In my sin; I would surely have turned the other way.
But Love’s Gift of Faith reached out to me
and my soul cried out for His mercy !

God embraced me as His adopted Child that day…

For God new that redemption's price
would lead the way to The Father’s
Holy Love and eternal embrace.
For The Cross had to be You see,
For at the Cross,God laid down
His Life and paid sin's price with His
Precious Blood being spilt out for death's penalty.

He paid the price I could not Pay on
Good Friday!





Inspired by God

I "turned away" for many years until by Divine intervention I saw the price paid and received the gift of His love and forgiveness. Is there anything on earth or in Heaven that could compare to that Love? Beautiful writing, thank you for sharing. God Bless you.

Thank you once again Sweetheart for this wonderful anointed poem. I think that the answer lies in John 3:16,17. "For God SO LOVED THE WORLD that HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, that whoever believes in HIM should not perish but have everlasting life. (17) For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through HIM might be SAVED." He came as the supreme sacrifice that we might be shown that we should not condemn the world but love the world through Him. For He said: John 15:12-This is My commandment, that you should love one another as I have loved you. Thank you for opening the door that we might catch a glimpse of the greatest love that ever lived. I love you, Sharon

could there have been any other way that sins price could have been be paid?...And we know the answer. NO. Jesus paid it all. That is His love gift to all mankind. How terrible that so many spurn such a gift...Thanks for this inspired poem....Helen

Dearest Dee... Your words make us think and ponder what we would have done had we been at the cross. We have actually been at the cross many times in our lives and we have turned against the Lord over and over, again. Yet, in HIS PERFECT LOVE for us, He has responded to our repenting pleas with total forgiveness! How humbling it is to know that this precious SON OF GOD died for my sins - I am so undeserving of this gift, yet by His Grace He gives it freely! PRAISE GOD, indeed! Thank you, Dee, for this priceless reminder of what God did for mankind. With love, always, Peggy
