It Had To Be Jesus

It had to be His brow, because I dishonored Him with a crown of thorns.
It had to be His face, because His countenance fell, when He bore my shame.
It had to be His eyes, because He took on my blindness, blood and tears filled his eyes.
It had to be His shoulders, because he bore my iniquity, and bore the weight of my sin.
It had to be His chest, because He bore a sinners heart, and struggled to breath the air that I take for granite.
It had to be His hands, because I pierced them with nails, onto a cross.
It had to be His legs, because they were weak and bruised from carrying the iniquity of us all.
It had to be His feet, because I pierced them with nails, onto a cross.

The Son of God hangs lifeless on Calvary…….

It had to be His brow, for I deserved the crown of thorns.
It had to be His face, for I deserved no esteem, and all the shame.
It had to be His eyes, for I was estranged from birth, never to see truth.
It had to be His shoulders, for God’s wrath upon my sin would have surely crushed me.
It had to be His chest, for I, a dead man, would have never felt a heart beat of true life.
It had to be His hands, for the nails were designed to pierce my sin, and the cross was mine.
It had to be His legs, for I walked in paths of iniquity.
It had to be His feet, for the nails were designed to pierce my sin, and the cross was mine.

“I have been crucified with Christ…” Gal 2:20

I hang lifeless with the Son of God on Calvary…….

It had to be Jesus, because he rose from the dead because of our justification. Rom 4:25
 
“It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me…” Gal 2:20

I now live because Christ Jesus lives.

It had to be Jesus.

It had to be Jesus who was scarred.

The gospel of Jesus will never be forgotten.

We will know and see the atonement for sin that Jesus made, throughout all eternity.

We will know the scars, and know why we were forgiven.

It had to be Jesus. It had to be God.

Yours in Christ,
Chris Fincher
