ABIDE! JUST ABIDE!

How could we ever deserve?

Is this not why He died?

Did we not need a transfusion?

His perfect blood applied?

.

.

Adam and Eve from the garden,

They needed, as Abel and Cain,

Perfect sacrifice, Abel’s,

By the which he was slain!

.

.

The Passover Lamb, too, was needed,

Another symbol of the cross!

Blood on the doorposts and lintel,

Lamb of God suffered loss!

.

.

“Behold the Lamb of God!”  John cried!

What further proof do we need?

That Jesus’ blood was required,

Of course, The Savior must bleed! (*)

.

.

Why this provision required?

Could personal action suffice?

No!  “Our righteousness is as filthy rags.”

The Savior must pay sin’s price!

.

.

“The wages of sin is death!”  So He died!

Sin’s penalty, “Once for all,”

Was paid!  Our salvation is intact!

Just believe and on Him call!

.

.

Year by year animals are killed

Symbolism quite clear!  But

“Once for all His blood made provision!”

So we need to nevermore fear!

.

.

“What must we do then to be saved?

Receive Him!  Stay by His side

Believe, receive, what did Christ say?

“Abide in Me, Just Abide!”

.

.

(*) Hebrews 10: 1, 3-10
