Jesus looks down from the cross…
Scans the crowd…
His body racked with pain and drenched with blood.
His eyes meet yours…
What does His gaze say to YOU?
Die with Christ…so that you may LIVE with HIM.
(We know the end of this story don’t we, and we rejoice in the knowing!)
“Yet it was our infirmities that he bore, our sufferings that he endured, while we thought of him as stricken, as one smitten by God and afflicted, but he was pierced for our offenses, crushed for our sins, upon him was the chastisement that makes us whole, by his stripes we were healed.” Is 53:4-5
At the drop of a leaf, I must let go and let God.
His eyes are so understanding, I am comforted for the better.
Have a beautiful Easter weekend!
Hanging with the Prince Of Peace, I am.
Uncle Tree 🙂
Beautiful words Uncle Tree…thanks for sharing! God Bless you!…I’m hanging with the Prince of Peace as well!
This is so powerful. Really powerful. That much sacrifice for humanity. Still having trouble wrapping my head around that. Thanks for sharing.
Yes can’t even try to wrap our head and heart around a love SO extravagant! But we walk in the belief! God bless you!
Had a great Good Friday service–looking forward to the reruns Sat and Sunday (online from Gateway Church, Southlake, TX). I love EASTER!
I love Easter too! God Bless you!
Amen! May God bless you richly on this Easter Day!
Easter Week blessings to you and yours Lady Deidre! God Bless you!
His gaze from that cross, in my mind’s eye, tells me of the most incredible love the world has ever known!
My first thought was the words of a song by Carman – “This blood is for YOU” and of course that speaks of His inexpressable love.
