The Cross Of Christ






How Is It
That Pre-Jesus
The Roman Cross
WAS
Just An Instrument Of Torture
AND
Death
BUT
Present-Jesus
- The Life ... Of The World -
It Is A Lamp-Post
- Shedding Eternal Light -
To Those Who Will
To Be Blessed?!

The Cross Of Christ
IS
A Transport
A Transport Of Delight
Lifting High
The Repentant Sinner
Sending Him
Into The Land Of Truth
Beauty
AND
Right!

The Wood
Is Not The Thing Important!
The Man Who Hung There
Was A Body Veiling
Divinity!
Divinity
Which Chose Fallen Man's Position
So That In Life's Death
Satan - He Who Is Death To Human Life -
- Thenceforth -
Would Be In His Own 
Certain
Unremitting Death Throes!
No More Woes!

Life Died To Overcome Death!
Life Arose
To Give His Life
To Man - The True Walking Dead!
Life Willingly Laid Down For Us
His Life
AND
To Give New Life To Men
His Life
He Surely Took Up Again!
He Reigns!

Life Won In The Bitter Strife!
Because Of Life's Death
I Have A Way To Go To The Father!
Because Life Lives
I Can
- One-On-One -
Talk To My Father God!
Because Life Reigns
I Can Walk Through
The Gates Of Glory
For
It Is My Right
Because
The Life Enlightens
AND
Enlivens
The New-In-Christ Life
I Gained!

I Rejoice
In Life's Death
Because
- In Acceptance -
I Get Life's Life
As He Took My Sure Death!

I View The Cross
As The Sign Post
Of Salvation
AND
I Rejoice
For
By Its Light
I Can See The Way
The Way 
To Get Back Home
Today!
It Is The Only Way There!

I Thank God
For Grace And Glory!
I Thank God
For Truth And Light!
I Thank God
For The Faith
That Believes The Gospel
The Good News Story
AND The Mercy
That Removes Me
From The State Of Disgrace
To The Glorious Place!

The Cross Of The Word
The Life Of The World
Is The Light To My Path
The Lamp To My Feet
The Lifter Up Of My Head!
I Will Not Deny The Lord
Who Died To Save Me
BUT
I Will Lift Him Up Daily
As I Do My Own Cross
AND
Follow Him
As I Am Led 
To Safety!


Taking The Holy Life
For A Sinner's Life
Leads To Eternal Life
For The Repentant Sinner
Who To Willful-Sin
Is Now Cold!
