FOUR CROSSES

Four crosses on that hill I see

The 4th one is mine!

Must Jesus bear a cross by Himself

Rest of us just shine?

.

.

No!  There is a cross for Christians all!

Literally, no!

Some guy thought it that way, I guess

Results:  his name did show!

.

.

Not a pleasant disfigurement!

Happy?  Tell the world, no!

Outskirts of a city in

Old Mexico!

.

.

This fanatic attempting to prove

Simply that he could!

Or what else?  Who then can tell?

Did not turn out good!

.

.

Did he consider, like, sins of all

Or only his own?

Maybe just a show off posture.

We should not condone!

.

.

Could anyone take the Savior’s place?

Of course not a one!

Jesus, The Only Perfect man

As God!  Yes, God’s Son!

.

.

Yes, God, as man, the perfect was tempted

God-man must endure!

For 40 days temptation raged!

But endured pure!

.

.

Complete proof that Jesus was (is) God!

Further proof desired?

Crucified, buried, arose the grave!

God!  Indeed!  Inspired!

.

.

What else required?  More proof needed?

Real proof, deep in my heart!

This Superman Jesus is everywhere

And your invitation is a start!

.

.

To show the world what God can do!

First in cleansing from sin!

Then a change, sometimes gradual but sure!

As He enters in!

.

.

Takes over, you bet everything!

Gradually with some.

Jesus is patient.  Finally proves

True before day has, like, run.

.

the Sam 01.19.12

NO ALLOTMENT

Most horrific sight on television is

The smooth red spreading of blood!

Its suddenness tends to terrorize

Just watching this crimson flood.

.

.

Blood of Christ, too why does it not?

Lulled, what have we become  to?

Spilling of blood, meaning ‘nada’

Nothing at all to you?

.

.

Old hymns are replete with the meaning

Of His cleansing from sin!

Blood of the Savior,  Jesus The Lord

Without no entrance in–

.

.

Into the splendor of matchless love!

And His unceasing care!

For cleansing in the blood of Him!

What else can compare?

.

.

TV replete with heroics yet

The hero comes clean

With maybe a wound or two to embellish

Greater than it may seem.

.

.

Hero suffers a bit but must live on!

How else can he be adored?

Jesus buried, arose from the grave!

Nothing less could afford.

.

.

Any pledge or love we may extend

For the blood poured out!

What for each sinner that receives,

Knows what it is all about!

.

.

How can such love be bested?

What hero’s will do,

Our hero’s must live on and on!

Christ’s death final for you!

.

.

“Wages of sin…death.”  No allotment!

And no one else will  –  will do!

The perfect Son of God, God Himself

Sure, God died for you!

.

.

When just a child, a daydreamer

I figured a wall out there

Black but by daylight transparent!

Keeping us in His care!

.

.

He came!  But the living forever,

Always was!  Never mind

About impossibilities

Our God is One of a Kind!

.

.

FOREVER!

.

.

Jesus, how I love Him!
