Forget Not the Cross

Forget Not The Cross

He was falsely accused,
beaten and assailed,
battered and humiliated,
tormented and jailed.

He was mocked and spit at,
but He seldom replied,
and publicly executed
when He was crucified.

Acquainted with rejection,
pain and agony,
injustice, hatred,
and great hostility!

He identifies with suffering,
and the intolerance of men,
yet still remains compassionate
just like He was back then.

Without Christ's sacrifice
it's eternal separation;
tho we deserved God's wrath,
we received instead salvation.

Forget not the cross
and that day at Calvary,
for upon its splintered form
Christ died to set us free! (c)

Isaiah 53

My first love is Jesus who inspires my pen, for apart from Him I can do nothing! I desire to honor the Lord and edify readers thru poetry He inspires.
