Jesus Took Our Place!
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

Jesus Took Our Place!

Jesus took our place, when on
the cross he died.
God’s son's life for our life
was then applied!

Jesus took our place, when on that
crucifixion day…
He provided for your sins
to be washed away!

Jesus traded his life for yours
and mine that moment.
His sacrifice on the cross
 was our atonement!

Jesus provides eternal salvation,
that he's freely giving!
He provided a chance to
enjoy heavenly living!

Jesus took a chance on you!
Will you do the same?
Why not reach out to him now?
And call on his name?

Living for Christ is an opportunity
he wants all to share!
He loves us so much!
And really does care!

Why not invite him in?
 He's already made a way!
This could be your opportunity!
This could be your day!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
