Jesus

We prefered darkness

You brought us into the light.

We rejected You

You pulled us to You.

We were bound up in chains

You set us free.

We were separated from You 

You removed the veil.

We were helpless and harassed

You took compassion on us.

We were alone

You became our only friend.

We were abandoned 

You adopted us.

We were lost

You came and found us.

We were destroyed for lack of knowledge 

You taught us.

We were weak

But You were strong.

We cursed You

You gave us songs of praise.

We sinned against you 

Upon confession You forgave us. 

We didn’t know what we were doing!

You had mercy.

We wandered away

You came looking for us.

We nailed you to a cross

You bled to give us life and life abundantly.

We didn’t deserve You 

You showed us grace.

We were handed a death sentence 

You willingly took our place.

Happy Easter ❤❤❤❤❤❤



Jesus is the Light of the World

“Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

–John 8:12

The Light of Life

He that closely, humbly, steadily follows me, shall have the divine light continually shining upon him, diffusing over his soul knowledge, holiness, and joy, till he is guided by it to life everlasting.

Benson Commentary

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.

John 3:16

“And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

–Acts 4:12

    1. Thanks Tony. 😃 I’m laughing a bit because I struggle with reading what I’ve written. I don’t feel that comfortable reading anything out loud. So it might be a very awkward reading. I’d have to work on that one. 🤣😂🤣🤣 You’re too kind and incredibly encouraging. I so appreciate the encouragement. It makes me smile. Thank you so much T. 💗😊 I hope your Easter was lovely. You’re valued as well my friend.
