JESUS, HORRIFIC THE PRICE!

Just do not understand how can He love,

How can He love this sinner?

Screaming for blood, “Take Him out!”

Cannot be a winner!

.

.

But a criminal deserving death!

The hanging!  Dying in pain!

Was he cursing his own worthless life

Echoing in disdain?

.

.

Angry curses of the others?

Cross on the other side.

Vile vituperation spilling

Over to deride!

.

.

One in the center, blood dripping down,

Thorns digging into His head!

But calm in His utter agony!

Thought HIM already dead!

.

.

But no!  Lips moved!  “This for you!”

For me did He say?

Flood of emotion!  Overcoming!

His head shook  in dismay.

.

.

 Acceptance then “For me?  For my sins?”

Tears flowed.   Then angrily:

“This man has done nothing wrong!”

We are punished for crimes.

.

.

Face clearly registers agony.

“This man has done no wrong!”

We die for crimes committed!

“…remember me when you come…”

.

.

His Face shows His love. “For your sins I die!”

Then, “This day in Paradise–“

For every sinner who repents this

Painful price!

.

.

But He arose!  Can any kill God?

Although the agony,

So very real that He suffered,

Yes!  Did it for me!

.

.

I am crucified with Christ

Never-the-less I live!  Yet, not I but

Christ in me.

the Sam 12.14.11
