Easter 2017 Poem: Way of The Cross (Joseph James Breunig)

Tis important to remember,
the holy Standard that was set for us!
Its purchase was selflessly made
by our beloved Christ Jesus.

Upon Calvary, this single sacrifice
of Jehovah’s perfect, atoning Lamb
completely demonstrates the truest form of Love
from our God, the Great I Am.

Lord, we may not entirely comprehend,
how Your ways are superior to our own,
but we need to realize that we’re called
to reach towards Your Kingdom throne.

From the cruel spilling of Your Son’s royal blood,
the ransom for Humanity was fully paid;
and the foundation of Heaven’s eternity
has been utterly sealed and forever laid.

Easter 2017 Poem: Hallelujah! Christ Arose! (Margaret Cagle) 

Furry bunnies and Easter eggs,
Are for children to have fun,
But will they hear the story,
Of God’s holy resurrected Son?

Baskets and chocolate bunnies,
May also enter the Easter scenes,
But let’s make sure the children,
Know what Easter really means.

Christ Jesus died for our sins,
But that’s not the end of the story.
He arose from the dead and the grave,
Before He soon went back to Glory.

The Easter season is a good time
To let Jesus’ light shine through.
Tell others that He died for us,
And that He was resurrected too.

Yes, the Savior died for everyone.
This is what I have already said,
But praise God! And hallelujah!
He also rose up from the dead!

May God bless us all at Easter.
It is a happy time of the year,
When we celebrate the Resurrection
Of our precious Savior so dear.

Easter is a time of reflection and joy. It is said that time of the year when when one emerges from their cocoon of doubt and all set to fly freely on the wings of faith. May this Easter Sunday inspire you to new hope, happiness, prosperity and abundance, all received through God’s divine grace. Wish you and your family, a very Happy Easter 2017.
