“He is risen!”
“The Lord is risen indeed!”
Dismayed I became, on hearing
That some Christians no longer accept
The blood of Christ shed for atonement,
For our sins to be blotted out.
“God wouldn’t be that cruel,” they say,
“To kill his Son. That’s barbaric!”
I’m thankful my pastor doesn’t feel that way,
And that many others express their faith
In the blood sacrifice of Jesus, who
Died for us, and by God’s mighty power
Conquered death: He rose again – for us,
That we might live forever with Him.
Giving thanks, I lean on the word of God.
“…by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place,
having obtained eternal redemption for us.”
“So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many;
and unto them that look for him shall he appear a second time
without sin unto salvation.” (Heb. 9: 12, 28)
Hallelulia! “He is risen indeed.”
