In All It’s Glory – Luke 23:39-43

In All It’s Glory – Luke 23:39-43

The perfect truth
In all it’s glory
For the thief on the cross
He found a home
He didn’t ask for forgiveness
He understood his guilt
Yet before his eyes
He recognised the innocent Messiah
And for the truth he spoke
He found the promise
To be with the Christ
For the rest of eternity
For this is the truth of the cross
In all it’s glory

The Message From The Cross – Luke 23:39-43

The Message From The Cross – Luke 23:39-43

It was the message from the cross
Where one throw insults
Yet the other just said His name
This was His only deed
Though He was guilty in his sin
And the loving Christ accepted him
The one that called our His name
Despite accepting the punishment of his sin
So does it matter what we’ve done
All sin is counted the same
Just call His name
Recognise Him as Lord and saviour
Accept Him in your life
And there is starts again
Reborn with our Lord

Two Thieves – Luke 23:39-43

Two Thieves – Luke 23:39-43

There upon the cross
Hung between the two
There once chose to scorn
Our Lord upon that tree
Yet the upon the other side
There the other saw the truth
He saw our Lord upon that tree
And asked our Lord to remember him
And the Lord of grace upon the cross
Made this promise to the thief
That He would be together with him
In the paradise beyond
This is the beauty of the cross
That when we call upon His name
Our transgressions are forgotten
As we are brought close to Him

Luke 23:39-43

On The Cross

On The Cross (Luke 23:39-43)

If I was taken to the cross
And hung by Your side
Which one would I be?
There was a time
When I would have been the one
To cast my insults Your way
Yet there came a Day
When the light fell on my life
So now if I was on the cross
Beside You on that day
I would know You were our saviour
And though I had failed
And hung there for my sin
You took to Your cross
To save me

Verse of the Day – Luke 23:39-43

Luke 23:39-43

Luke 23:39-43

Of all the things that Jesus did for us on the cross, this stands out to me the most, it didn’t matter what the criminal had done, his past was forgotten, he simply recognised Jesus for who he truly was, that was enough, his reward… his place in heaven alongside Jesus.

Unfortunately, though I know my past is forgotten, I still let it haunt me from time to time!

MERCY TREE by LACEY STURM
On a hill called Calvary
Stands an endless mercy tree
Every broke and weary soul
Find your rest and be made whole

Stripes of blood that stain its frame
Shed to wash away our shame
From the scars pure love released
Salvation brought the mercy tree

In the sky, between two thieves
Hung the blameless Prince of Peace
Bruised and battered, scarred and scorned
Sacred Hands pierced by our thorns

It is finished was his cry
The perfect Lamb was crucified
The sacrifice, our victory.
Our Savior chose the mercy tree

Hope went dark that violent day
The whole earth ‘quaked at love’s display
Three days silence in the ground
This body born for Heaven’s crown

On that bright and glorious day
Heaven opened up the grave
He’s alive and risen indeed
Praise him for the mercy tree

Death has died. Love has won!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Jesus Christ has overcome.
He has risen from the dead.

Death has died. Love has won!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Jesus Christ has overcome.
He has risen from the dead.

One day soon we’ll see His face
And every tear, He’ll wipe a way
No more pain or suffering
Oh, praise him for the mercy tree

Death has died. Love has won!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Jesus Christ has overcome.
He has risen from the dead.

Death has died. Love has won!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Jesus Christ has overcome.
He has risen from the dead.

On a hill called Calvary
Stands an endless mercy tree
