Cross Hope

A Holy Week Reflection

Jesus took upon Himself what we deserved,
through the Cross that we ourselves had earned,
so we’d not dwell in a spiritual urn,
but have everlasting life in return…

He is the Message, He is the Mercy, He is the Hope that makes us alive and free.

 

We were without a thread of hope,
spinning through the cycle of our little god-less world,
when Light broke through the darkness…
and offered peace by His Cross to all bound in utter lost-ness.

He is the Message, He is the Mercy, He is the Hope that makes us alive and free.

 

Jesus rose in vic’try from the grave,
through the same Spirit that now dwells within my frame,
so we’d hope for the time when all will be remade,
and live right now to the praise of His great Name.

 

Death was swallowed up in Victory.

Fear was replaced with Hope.

Doubt was overcome by Grace.

Hate was conquered by Love.

 

Promise fulfilled.

Life given.

He Arose.

He is the Message, He is the Mercy, He is the Hope that makes us alive and free.

 

“For it was the Father’s good pleasure for all the fullness to dwell in Him, and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself, having made peace through the blood of His cross; through Him, I say, whether things on earth or things in heaven.” (Colossians 1:20)

 

“When you were dead in your transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made you alive together with Him, having forgiven us all our transgressions, having canceled out the certificate to us; and He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross.” (Colossians 2:13-14)

I’m trying out my poetic, or shall I say, rapping skills. 🙂 What do you think?
