The Love of Calvary

A Poem:

What do you mean when you say you love me?
Am I really worth that much to you?
I am thirsty, and I am weak.
Will we fly together?  I want to.
Please pick me up.  Take me with you, please.
You are everything I want…

What have they done to you?
Pale, bleeding, hanging there, most beautiful one
Pierced, crushed and heartbroken
You cry out in agony, “I LOVE YOU!”
Torn, shredded, naked flesh, dripping beautiful blood
You see me and smile.

A Prayer:

How precious Your love is, oh my God.  I thank You for your sacrifice.  Let me never forget, that You love me THAT much.  You endured all the pain that I deserved.  You took me from the mire and made me a man.  You deserve all my worship, all my life, all my everything.  You know, I don’t even know what my “everything” even is.  But you do.  Show me how to be the mighty warrior you’ve called me to be.  Amen.

“Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.  Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.”–Hebrews 12:2-3
