You and I are the beneficiaries of a love letter

It was written in blood on a wooden cross, erected in Judea 2,000 years ago

He was crucified on a cross of wood

Yet He made the hill on which it stood

By Him were all things made, that were made

without Him was not anything made that was made

By Him are all things are held together

What held Him to that cross? It was not the nails!

At any time he could have declared “I’m out of here!”

It was His love for you and me

He was born of a woman

  • So that we could be born of God

He humbled Himself

  • So that we could be lifted up

He became a servant

  • So that we could be made co-heirs

He suffered rejection

  • So that we could become his friends

He denied Himself

  • So that we could freely receive all things

He gave Himself

  • So that He could bless us in every way

He is available to the tempted and the tried

He blesses the young

He cleanses the lepers

He defends the feeble

He delivers the captives

He discharges the debtors

He forgives the sinners

He franchises the meek

He guards the besieged

He heals the sick

He provides strength to the weak

He regards the aged

He rewards the diligent

He serves the unfortunate

He sympathizes and He saves!

His Offices are manifold

His Reign is righteous

His Promises are sure

His Goodness is limitless

His Light is matchless

His Grace is sufficient

His Love never changes

His Mercy is everlasting

His Word is enough

He is indescribable

He is incomprehensible

He is irresistible

He is invincible

The Heaven of heavens cannot contain Him

Man cannot explain Him

The Pharisees couldn’t stand Him,

and learned that they could not stop Him

Pilate couldn’t find any fault with Him,

the witnesses couldn’t agree against Him

Herod couldn’t kill Him

death couldn’t handle Him

the grave couldn’t hold Him

He has always been and always will be

He had no predecessor and will have no successor

You cannot impeach Him, and he is not going to resign

His name is above every name

That in the name of Yeshua

Every knee shall bow

Every tongue shall confess

That Jesus Christ is Lord.

His is the Kingdom, the power and the glory

…….. for ever and ever.

………..Amen!
