For Christians all over the world, this is 'Passion Week'. Some may wonder...just what is this 'Passion' that is celebrated with such revered remembrance? Well...I guess everyone has their own interpretation, but for me this is it; over two thousand years ago, Jesus Christ displayed the Truest and Deepest of all Passions. And He did it for a cause that no one had ever done before...nor... has ever done since. I say this because what I find so amazingly beautiful and awesome about the display of His ultimate Passionate Love for us is the fact that it was done so 'Selflessly'. For everything He went through, He did not go through for Himself...but for the world! Think about it! Salvation, which is the forgiveness of our sins, is the 'timeless product' of our God's Passion. Yes! Our God's 'elected' Suffering was for you and for me! And we were then and still are, 'all' sinners, not worthy of His Suffering... His Passion. He knew it. But He did it for us anyway. Thus, we remember His one-of-a-kind Love...His Passion!


We speak of it, yet we hardly know

let me share this truth...if you will

bare with this seed I sow



Going forth from town to town

He chose twelve to be by His side

He set his face like flint and healed many

while teaching words of life...and guide


He delared  truth...He was the Messiah...

the promised...chosen one

though many rebuked and spurned Him

He did not stop...He would not run



The temple leaders hated Him...

a threat to their so called...'authority'

He knew they plotted and schemed

to murder Him...on a tree


Yes...He was aware of their plans, yet

He did not flinch...nor did He falter

but called upon His Father...saying

Your not alter



He was beaten and scourged

His precious head...crowned with thorn

still, there was no complaint

He was silent...without even a turning mourn


So commited to His task...He never looked back

His only goal was to pave the way

His eyes invisioned ...'us' our eternal home...someday



And there was never be a regret...even as nails

ripped through His flesh into the wood

wasn't He able to call His stop them?!

yes! Indeed...He could!


But...if He had shielded Himself...if

He had responded with omnipotent display

then we...would not have the 'gift'

of  'Salvation'



A spear...pierced His side

out flowed...water and blood

the beginning of mercy and grace

that...eternal...cleansing flood


For a dying world...

He alone...could withstand satan's buffet

He loved us so much...

He went through it all...for 'our' profit



I give you His Arms...that will ever protect you

Lips...that have never lied

His Strength...that will keep you safe

through storm and high tide


I give you His Warmth...

when the world is so...cold

He'll walk with you in perilous times

His Spirit...will make you bold!


I give you 'Him'...who treasures you

I give you the Way, the Truth and the Light!

I give you a Living, Risen Savior

who denied us 'nothing'...even his very...Life!



I give you true ...



Matt26-28, Mk 14-16, Lk 22-24, Jhn 18-21

Inspired poetry that reaches out. and reaches in to ones heart.

...this is a rare glimpse into what it truly means to live, for Christ... and it moves those of us who know what it means to live for Christ... so often we say things like "I admire your passion," but when you put it like this... the definition of the word defies comprehension... and moves us ever farther towards his undying grace... which would be impossible, were it not for his incredible passion...

...thanks so much for your sensitivity to detail... you grasp of what is beyond most is truly a study in passion!

I give you 'Him'...who treasures you
I give you the Way, the Truth and the Light!
I give you a living, risen Savior
Who denied us 'nothing'...even his very life!
The bottom line goes way past all human understanding.
That's why He is truly The Messiah!
No human would love us that much. But Jesus Did! Amen

Have a Very Blessed Easter Joyce!

passion mercy and love, emotions he gave meaning to through His teachings and crucifixion -- your message peals like a clear ringing bell as Easter nears Joyce -- thank you for sharing your thoughts for the most joyous day of celebration in the life of Christians -- I wish you love and peace my dear friend -- Jon Michael

Adam and Eve lost their perfection through disobedience and we inherited that sin. The only way for redemption was through Christ whose sacrifice would forgive us as long as we repent for our own sins. The love God has for us is proven in his giving his only begotten son for the rest of us. Well told, Joyce
