The Messiah
A Poem by Debi Jenkins

He loved us
He created us
He gave us life
He chose us
He served us
He honored us
He called us precious
He called us His
He blessed us
He was kind to us
He saved us
He was unselfish
He ministered to us
He had mercy on us
He called us His children
He died for us.

We hated him
We mocked him
We insulted him
We betrayed him
We denied him
We beat him
We dishonored him
We spit on him
We laughed at him
We made him carry his own cross
We put a crown of thorns on his head
We drove sharp nails into his hands and feet
And...we killed him.

After all this, Jesus still loved us.
He arose from the grave as he promised.
He paid the price for our ugly sin.

But...some still hate him
Some refuse to acknowledge him
Some are selfish
Some don't make a church or reading the Bible a priority
Some worship other gods
Some hate
Some take his name in vain
Some murder
Some lie
Some cheat
Some steal
We all sin. But he has redeemed us.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. John 3: 16-17
