I pray that you would pause today and reflect on the truth and the reality of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ this Good Friday. I am moved by Jesusâ€™ suffering and death to bring me, a rebel against Him and His purposes, back to into relationship with Himself and with the Father.
From time to time I try to imagine where I would be if Jesus hadnâ€™t died for me? I shutter to think of where I would be and I praise Him that I know Him and that Iâ€™m not there.
Where would you be if He hadnâ€™t died for you?
I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20 (ESV)
As you pause to reflect on Jesusâ€™ suffering and death I wanted to share the lyrics of a song that my good friend, Danen Kane, has written. (check out Danen’s MySpace Page ) I pray it speaks to you!
waiting for you
holy father, the time has come
may your cup pass from me
but no my will, but yours be done
i hung on calvary, spread across that tree
as love it poured from me, from me to you
i came to save the lost, i came to pay your cost
pierced upon the cross, i died to be with you
they call me the man of sorrows, what would you call me?
a man who came to save and to love
only to be beaten and spit upon, even to this day
but arise, arise, children of the light
for victory was won that faithful night
hallelujah, the veil in the temple cried
for the savior is ready for his bride
i’m waiting for you, waiting for you,
waiting for you, waiting for you
everyday you chase, those empty pleasures
always leading you to the same lonely place
well i made you with my hands, i know every hair upon your head
i don’t care where you’ve been, i don’t care what you’ve done
no, no, i died for it all
the time has come, the time has come
come back to me my precious one
i’m waiting for you, i’m waiting for you
waiting for you my precious one
Indeed He, Jesus, is waiting for you! If you have never entered into a relationship with Jesus, He is waiting! Turn to Him!
