Did you ever think of all Jesus went
Due to His love for me and for you?
How would you take someone spitting
in your face?
Would you be able to maintain your
What about being punched and then being
Would you be able to keep your anger
Now hurt and weak, could you carry
Due to others whose teachings were
Now take a look at your hands, how shaky
Think how it would feel to be pierced
with a nail.
Then have a nail hammered through each
Most, at this point, would give up
Now nailed to the cross, it would be
Your body's weight pulling your muscles
Just think of all the pain as you hang
And only a few around who really care.
Jesus showed no anger or resentment
All He showed was a full commitment.
At any time, He could have called angels
to destroy us all,
But due to His love and mercy, He didn't
want us to fall.
Now take a moment and think of all in
life you have done
You have lived worldly ways and had
Repent of your ways—on Judgment Day
you can't run.
On Sunday, go to where others truly
worship God's Son.
