Tha' Crown, Victory Won!

When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, He said, It is finished: and He bowed His head, and gave up the ghost. John 19:30

Easter's in tha' spring 'a tha' year when flowr's 'n trees are bloom'n, grass is gett'n green, 'n everyth'n is new again. It's a fitt'n time, I'd say, ta' celebrate the death 'n ressurection 'a Jesus. At our church's Easter Pageant last year, Cousin Cletus was in charge 'a roll'n tha' stone away from tha' tomb. Tha' lights had just gone down. He start'd ta' roll tha' stone 'n it got loose. It roll'd over tha' feet 'a tha' people sitt'n on tha' front row. Ya' could hear people holler'n. All tha' people, who help'd with mov'n sets, had ta' wear black. When tha' lights came up again, there was Cousin Cletus sitt'n in front of tha' tomb - in his flannel underware. It was tha' only thing black he had ta' wear.

I remember see'n a movie a long time ago called, "Kings of Kings". It was 'bout tha' life 'a Christ and His crucifixtion. As I was watch'n it, I cried think'n Jesus did this for me?! Yes, He did it for all 'a us. Jesus was born for tha' cross. His purpose was ta' suffer, bleed, 'n die for us. By His grace 'n mercy, we are saved 'cause Jesus took all tha' sins of tha' world upon Himself.

At tha' cross on Calvary is where we'll find God's greatest mercy 'n sacrifice. I can't imagine how God must 'a felt. I can't imagine what Jesus went through for us. All I know is it's God's amaz'n, awesome grace 'n love for us sinnr's. Fella' Christians we need ta' take a look at our hearts 'n make sure we're right with God, 'n ask Him what we need ta' do for Him? He's done it all for us.

If ya' don't know Christ, my prayer is that ya' will believe that he suffered, bled, 'n died for ya' on tha' cross. And He resurrect'd on tha' third day so ya' can have eternal life with Him. Then repent and ask God ta' forgive ya' of your sins. It's the most important decision ya'll ever make in your life. Your victory is won in Jesus.

Jesus, you bore the nails in your hands and feet; the spear in your side; the crown of thorns you wore for me. Jesus, victory came that day on the cross when you gave us mercy and grace we don't deserve. Jesus, you bore the cross for me. Janet Harllee
