STILL HE WALKED

He could hear the crowds screaming, "crucify" "crucify
He could hear the hatred in their voices,
these were His chosen people.
He loved them, and they were going to crucify Him.
He was beaten, bleeding and weakened...His heart was broken,
but still He walked.

He could see the crowd as He came from the palace.
He knew each of their faces so well.
He had created them.
He knew every smile, laugh, and shed tear,
but now they were contorted with rage and anger...His heart broke,
but still He walked.

Was he scared?
You and I would have been,
So His humanness would have mandated that He was. He felt alone.
His disciples had left, denied, and even betrayed Him.
He searched the crowd for a loving face and He saw very few.
Then He turned His eyes to the only one that mattered
and He knew that He would never be alone.
He looked back at the crowd, at the people who were spitting
At Him, throwing rocks at Him and mocking Him and He knew
that because of Him, they would never be alone.
So for them, He walked.

The sounds of the hammer striking the spikes echoed through
the crowd. The sounds of His cries echoed even louder,
the cheers of the crowd, as His hands and feet
were nailed to the cross, intensified with each blow.
Loudest of all was the still small voice inside His
Heart that whispered "I am with you, my Son",
And God's heart broke.
He had let His Son walk.

Jesus could have asked God to end His suffering,
but instead He asked God to forgive.
Not to forgive Him, but to forgive the ones who were persecuting Him.
As He hung on that cross, dying an unimaginable death,
He looked out and saw, not only the faces in the crowd,
But also, the face of every person yet to be,
And His heart filled with love.
As His body was dying, His heart was alive.
Alive with the limitless, unconditional love He feels for each of us.
That is why He walked.

When I forget how much My God loves me,
I remember His walk.
When I wonder if I can be forgiven,
I remember His walk.
When I need reminding of how to live like Christ,
I think of His walk.
And to show Him how much I love Him,
I wake up each morning, turn my eyes to Jesus,
and I walk.

The Lord Jesus Christ is alive and well. He did die for the sins of the
world and was buried, but on the third day, He rose from the grave and is
now alive. We do not believe in a dead Savior as many other religions do,
but Christians believe in the Only True and Living Savior, the Lord Jesus
Christ. He paid the price once and for all and now the Bible says,
whosoever will is welcome to call upon the name of the Lord and be saved.
(Isaiah 53:4-12) (Romans 5:12-19) (John 19:30) (Romans 10:13)

If you have never put your complete trust in the Lord Jesus Christ, there
is no better time than the present. The Bible says that Jesus knocks at
the door of our hearts and waits to come in. It is up to us whether we
open that door and invite the Lord into our heart. He will never force
Himself upon anyone because He has given us a free will to either accept
Him or reject Him. Jesus says, "I am the bread of life: he that cometh to
me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst."
(Revelation 3:20) (Deuteronomy 30:19) (John 6:35)

I encourage you to call upon the name of Lord today if you have never done
so before. In Him there is Peace, Joy and Love that surpasses all
understanding and unless you try Him for yourself, you will never know or
understand what the true meaning of peace really is. (Philippians 4:4-7)

Your article.

STC, that was awesome!!
read your article and approved every word. Now for a further topic for you to write about. HE died for our sins and then the promise of the ressurection. This is only my opinion, if The Saviour did not rise from the grave then we are no better than animals. Ibelieve that He did, so the promise that he gave to all of us (in my fathers house there are) is the core of my understanding. What do you think. You are abetter writer than I.RESPECT Parable.

i didn't write it. It is a poem speeking of endurance through trial. Essentialy barring your cross when it is easier to give in and the world is crashing down on you. This is one aspect of the christian walk more targeted to one who is already a christian and is experiencing the same circumstances....God Bless

How unfathomable is depths of the love of God, that He was willing to suffer and die for someone as lowly and unworthy as I! No words can express my gratitude to Him!

Joh 15:13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.

"And to show Him how much I love Him,
I wake up each morning, turn my eyes to Jesus,
and I walk."
amen
