The Greatest Love Story Ever

April 11, 2012

T’was a cold dark Friday in history
One shrouded in deep mystery
As divinity clothed in humanity
Took a path that seemed like insanity
Evil around Him danced and pranced
As up Golgotha’s hill, He slowly advanced
the cross on His shoulders though heavy, seemed light
Compared with sin of the world He bore that night,
Placed upon Him by none other
Than His very own beloved Father
At first glance, seemed an act of wickedness
How could the innocent be slain for the guilty?
A closer look reveals an act of loving-kindness
Done to wash the stains from the filthy
The Father could not bear to save one Son and lose all the others
So He sent His beloved to die for His would-be brothers

But that day the sinful tormented their Saviour
They taunted and mocked Him, in shameful behaviour
They drove mighty nails right through His hands
and His screams echoed all across the land
The cat-o-nine tails ripped the flesh from His bones
It stung more than a beating with stones
For with every one of the 39 lashes
His skin was marred by bloody gashes
The spear to His side drew water and blood
Gushing out like a raging flood
And they crowned it all with thorns on His head
When they should have worshipped him instead
Yet he begged their heinous crimes the Father forgive
Such mercy no human mind can ever conceive
He must have been in painful torment
But nothing compared to that dreadful moment
When the Father turned away, and let His son be,
“My God, My God why have you forsaken me?”
He cried out in agony and despair
As the bridge between man and God was repaired
Then breathed His last after He said “It is finished.”
And the power of that moment has never diminished:

Sickness was finished when he bore the stripes
Sin was finished when he shed his blood
Death was finished when he gave up his life
But defeat became history when he won the victory
In the most glorious moment of all
Sunday morning in Satan’s stall
The prince of darkness had gloated for two days
Priding himself on his devilish ways
When suddenly he heard a loud rumble
and watched in shock as the gravestones crumbled
Alas he could only stare in dismay
As angels rolled the tombstone away
And when the King of Kings arose and emerged from the grave
The defeated devil pulled out his own hairs, screaming, “Nooooooo, he’s alive?!”
At that very moment the host in that heavenly place
Thundered the same words through time and space
With Joy unspeakable and full of glory:
He’s alive, He’s alive, Jesus is alive!

Alive and well the Son of God is right now:
Seated in majesty beside His Father
Awaiting the day He claims his bride
And brings her to dwell forever at his side
What tale of love can compare with this one?
That a God would give up His beloved Son?
Divinity besotted with humanity
And not a tall-tale, but a joyous reality:
The indelible act at Calvary,
An incredible feat of bravery,
An incomprehensible show of love,
By the indescribable God up above
That astoundingly selfless sacrifice
Was a non-refundable bride price
Paid-in-advance, paid-in-full
And he gladly paid-it-all for YOU!

Yes!!!! Can you imagine the Son of God, on His knee
His hand outstretched to you saying “Will you marry me?”
And he’s not offering a 6-carat diamond in a little black box
No, far better, he’s offering eternity in a place
where the streets are made of gold
There’s unending joy and peace and love,
No sorrow, no sickness, and nobody ever grows old! 🙂
If I were you, my answer would be an absolute “YES, I WILL!”
And if that’s your answer then someday I’ll see YOU
at THE REAL ROYAL WEDDING!!!

A Very Happy Easter to You and Yours!
