The Power of the Cross

Oh to see the dawn of the darkest day.
Christ on the road to Calvary.
Tried by sinful men, torn and beaten then
Nailed to a cross of wood.

This the pow’r of the cross.
Christ became sin for us.
Took the blame, bore the wrath,
We stand forgiven at the cross.

Oh to see the pain written on Your face,
Bearing the awesome weight of sin.
Every bitter thought, ev’ry evil deed
crowning Your bloodstained brow.

Now the daylight flees, now the ground beneath
quakes as its? Maker bows His head.
Curtain torn in two, dead are raised to life.
“Finished!” the vict’ry cry.

Oh to see my name written in the wounds,
for through Your suff’ring I am free.
Death is crushed to death, life is mine to live
won through Your selfless love!

  1. Came across your blog from a Twitter search. Good luck with trying to “lead people to Jesus.” Why don’t you stop your self-righteous ways and let people be?

  2. @Cat, if you come back to read my comment, let me ask you straight up to describe to me how I have been “self-righteous.” I will be quick to apologize.

    For anyone else who reads this blog, let me speak a word about “letting people be”. Letting people be is known in our legal system as “neglect.” When we leave a needy person alone, we have neglected our duty to help.

    So the only question we need to answer is this: Do people need Jesus? If people don’t need Jesus then my claim that I know him and that you should too can seem to be self-righteous. However, if people do need him, then leaving people alone about the issue is the worst thing we can do.

    Answer the question for yourselves: Do people need Jesus?

    Then live your life consistently with your answer.
