The Cross.

FB_IMG_1458974666684

Two wooden logs.
In a shape of a “t”.
A man was nailed to it.
An innocent man was nailed to it.

This man was a carpenter.
Like every other man during that time.
Would you have believed him,
… when He said he was God’s Son?

He was mocked.
He was whipped and was being spat at.
They let him wear a crown of thorns.
That pierced through his skin.

Stabbed with a spear.
Imagine the pain He went through.
Can you?
Oh the agony!

But did you know…?
He did not die in vain.
He suffered and died for all our sins!
The sins.. that he did not do.

He’s the son of a carpenter.
He’s the Son of God.
He’s the coming King.
His name is JESUS.

A Sinner’s Lament.

forgiven_post_cards-r5bfe12dedc214b0692e1cc187850e954_vgbaq_8byvr_324I. Confessions of a Sinner.

I’ve lied to many people to get away from being reprimanded.
Including my parents who have long thought I was a saint.
I was a saint in their own eyes.
I know I have pledged my ways…

…but the enticement to do the wrong was unbearably strong.

I’ve killed vagueness with vulgarity.
In which too much attention drove me to the spotlight.
I’ve punished those whom I’ve thought,
Had they stolen my rightful spot.

Made friends with people carrying pitchforks.
I was vain, haughty and greedy.
I am not proud of it now.
I know I once was.

I have my share of love found and love lost.
I have my share of wicked infidelities.
Wicked schemes of revenge.
Lustfullness to unimaginable extremity.

I am not happy.

I am not proud of all the things I’ve done.
I have suffered severe consequence.
Consequeneces that made me writhe in pain.
I was emotionally drained, bleeding and dying spiritually.

Where I can’t be found.

II. Redemption of a Sinner.

First time in my life I closed my eyes.
Knelt down to pray, I asked for pardon against my sins.
Would He ever forgive me, I asked myself.
Because I know, I am not worthy of His grace.

I just knelt not thinking of anything.

What do I pray? I asked myself again.
Then a shadow came over me.
I blinked open and saw the sun was in my eyes.
Too bright that I couldn’t see.

I heard a voice inside my head.
It said, “my Child, why are you afraid of me?
Come to me.
I will give you rest.

I knew it was Him.

I felt so ashamed.
I felt so scared.
I felt so little.

His voice called out my deepest fears and pains.
Everything that has been pulling my life down seem to loosen its weight.
His soothing words calmed my beating heart.
My nights turned to days.

He said, I love you.
I will never forsake you.
I have been waiting for you.

I cried with all my heart.
I cried all the hurts and the sins tht has kept me in bondage all these time.
I cried all the pain that tortured me and left me for dead all these years.
I choked on my tears when I envisioned myself kneeling at his feet.
He pulled me up and cradled me in His arms.

The whole time, He was there.
When I felt so alone and no one to turn to,
He was there.
He loved me despite my inequities.
He cared for me.
He died for my sins.
He redeemed me of my sins.

I know JESUS loves me.

Overcome

I have overcome hatred with Love.
I have overcome impatience with Understanding.
I have overcome pain with Unselfishness, knowing how my God endured it.

I do not consider myself righteous when I tell you to change.

Though you know which path to take,
You let everyday life suck you dry…
With envy, selfishness, lies and being a hypocrite is what boils down inside.

I’ve been on that road once, twice, three times in this life time.

I have marked my way of life through my victories and failures.
Failures have made me better than my victories.
Have you thought of betterness or bitterness in your failures?

What could God be telling you?

And true friends might come and go in your life time.
One truest friend stays forever.
A true friend may tell you of your faults, but with love and tenderness.
A fair-weather friend may tell you of your faults just for the goal of hurting you.
If you are a true friend you’d not think otherwise but accept what a friend sees in you.

…..and change for the better.

Learn to accept,
Learn to be true,
Learn the ways what God is teaching you to do.
Do not be a hypocrite when you seem to serve the Lord,
…but your heart is not into it.
It will be like burning coals on your head.

Walk in the ways of the Lord,
I’m walking mine….
…but have you?
