A Christmas/Cross poem by Arthur Blessitt
Out of the dark chaos of world history.
The sky opened to reveal the angel of the Lord
and the heavenly hosts.
“The Word became Flesh”
“God with us”
“Jesus is here”
A star shows the way to our Savior.
Even as the shadow of the cross looms.
Jesus walks with the cross to Calvary.
The Holy Sinless Blood of Jesus was shed on the cross.
The love of God was revealed.
Mercy and Grace we can now know.
Jesus died for our sins!
The stone closes the grave.
Where is hope?
Where is good news?
The third day the earth shakes…
The stone is rolled away…
Now we can see in…
He is not here!
Christ has risen!
Jesus is alive!
Jesus ascends to heaven!
Jesus ever lives to make intercession for us.
Whosoever shall call upon the Name of the Lord
shall be saved. You can do that right now.
Now is ‘our’ time!
To share, to proclaim, to preach, to follow Jesus!
May the love of God fill you.
May the peace of Jesus rest upon you.
May the power of the Holy Spirit lead you.
God bless you! Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen!
