It is simply a poem that the Lord had so graciously given me, and
my comment on that particular poem.

Do you thank Jesus for the things He has done for you? I think that we all fall short on this. At this particular time of year we think of ‘being thankful’. Can you honestly say you are comfortable with being thankful to God and His Son just at Thanksgiving? I cannot! He has done so much for me that I do try to thank and praise Him each and every day I live. We need to praise Him for who He is . . . our sovereign God!
There are so many images of Christ Jesus! So many see Him as a Baby in a manger, and their image of Christ would be the so-called Christmas image. Some people see Him as a young child living in a carpenter shop, and on one occasion confusing the religious leaders of Jerusalem. Some people see Him as a gentle, loving teacher. Some people see Him as a compassionate and powerful Healer who could heal the sick and raise the dead. Some people see Him as a courageous, bold, and fiery preacher who brought great crowds together and spoke the Word of God to them. Some see Him as a perfect model of manhood. All of those images of Christ would to one extent be true. And we all can learn from His life, as we look at the perfections of His Person: at His love, His goodness, His kindness, His compassion, His concern, His care, His tenderness, His forgiveness, His wisdom, His understanding and His never ending trust in God. As we look at all of those characteristics of Christ, they are images that can instruct us, and we can learn so much from them.
But, in my humble opinion, the image of Christ that surpasses all of those and, in a sense, is the truest opinion of Christ and the one that is most necessary . . . and that is Christ and Him crucified. To me, the most accurate vision of Christ is as the Crucified One. The truest and purest perspective of the person and work of Christ is found in viewing Him as the suffering Jesus. That surpasses all the others. As we look to Jesus who is the Author and Finisher of our faith (Heb.12:2), we have to see Him in His suffering! The most important point for every TRUE Christian must be on the suffering Christ. The Crucified Christ is our vision.
Nowhere can we see Christ Jesus’ love so clearly as we do on the cross. Nowhere do we see His deity so clearly as on the cross. Nowhere do we see His humanity so clearly as we do on the cross. Nowhere do we see His work being accomplished as clearly as we do on the cross. It is only THERE in His suffering, He is most completely revealed.
Jesus came to “seek and save that which was lost” (Lu.19:10); this includes the whole world (Jn.4:42; 1 Jn.4:14), because we all are sinners (Ro.3:10, 23). If you have not trusted Jesus to save you from everlasting destruction in Hell (2 Thes.1:9), turn to Him today. John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (KJV) Only Jesus can give you access to Heaven, where God the Father lives. If you are God’s child, thank Him! If not, become God’s child today by accepting God’s Son, Jesus.
HAVE YOU THANKED HIM FOR WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR YOU?
If Not, WHY not?
