Jesus to me…


My sins for His righteousness

This poem is inspired by this blog post: http://tworiversblog.com/2013/05/31/the-great-substitution-53113/

They say You were a great teacher

Who taught what He practiced

A man with real passion

To those who would listen.

 

They say You were a great physician

Who healed the sick and bed ridden

Without any charge or fee for Your touch

You took away all their pain.

 

Yet some say You were the greatest prophet

Who heard and taught the Word of God

You turned the harlot hearts to their God

That they may live according to the law.

 

But to me, Jesus You are more

What they didn’t realise was

That You were the Word of God

Who took the requirements of the law

And took the punishment for my sin it demand

 

An innocent life exchanged for my shame

Took upon Yourself all of my pain

Yes, You didn’t escape the cross

But carried it on Your shoulders

To Calvary where You gave Your life

That I may live with You forever

 

No one died for You

But You gave Yours for free to everyone

To those who would accept the gift of love

No sin or condemnation freedom forever

 

Jesus, You won the grave 3 days after

For You are God, the champion of heaven

Lord of the universe, rebuking the storm

Giving me peace and assurance of grace

For now and the life to come!
