JUST FOR ME! June 22, 2015


“When we were unable to help ourselves, at the moment of our need, Christ died for us, although we were living against God…God shows his GREAT LOVE for us in this way:  CHRIST DIED FOR US WHILE WE WERE STILL SINNERS.”         Romans 5:6,8

Yesterday was Fathers Day…the day we celebrate our dads and honor them in a particular way.

One day, I was thinking about how much Jesus loves me.  I came to the realization that if I had been the ONLY person in this world that needed salvation…HE would have died…just for ME!  The revelation of this fact, was overwhelming!

So, this poem is in honor of God MY Father, His Son, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit He sends to comfort me each day.

Thank you Lord for being my Daddy! -anita

*****************************************************************************

There was no crown for Jesus made

Of silver, or of gold;

He was but a lowly shepherd

To His flock and fold.

But He wore a crown upon His brow,

It was a crown of thorns;

A crown that ripped…and tore…

And I’M the one who gave to Him, that awful crown He wore!

He didn’t sit high upon a throne,

And reign in majesty;

But, He hung upon a cruel cross

For all the world to see.

He suffered UNTOLD agony…

And I’M the one He did it for…He did it just for ME!

He fixed His eyes upon the throng

That stood around His cross…

And there He saw ME standing…

All alone, and lost!

I caught His gaze, and felt His love,

And I KNEW…it was just for ME

That He chose to suffer, and bleed, and die

Upon that cruel tree!

No robe of scarlet did He wear…

But He left Himself naked, so that I could stare,

And see the beating He took in MY place…

How they tore out His beard, and marred His face!

The second time I caught His gaze,

It said, “I DO forgive! …

My blood that’s spilled,

Is YOUR ransom paid…I’ll die, so YOU can live!”

Then He looked towards Heaven, and said three words:

“It is finished!” …that’s what His Father heard;

But when I looked, and saw Him there…

With His arms stretched open wide…

I heard Him say, “I love YOU this much!”

Then He closed His eyes, and He died.

This, I will NEVER forget…

This picture, I’ll always see;

For in my heart, I KNOW for sure…

He did it…JUST FOR ME!
