I Bow My Head - And Thank YOU

When I think of the amazing sacrifice of my Saviour and His love for the whole world , I can only bow my head and thank Him for All He has done ....and for All He has done for Me ..

What A Sacrifice - What A Price !




Every year, since the Exodus from Egypt , the Jews celebrated the Passover to commemorate the passing over of the Death Angel from the Israelites , and their freedom from captivity .

When Jesus and His disciples shared what would be their last Passover supper together He spoke these words ......from Luke Chapter 22 vs 15 - 20

' I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer . For I tell you , I will not eat it again until it finds its fulfilment in the Kingdom of God

After taking the cup, He gave thanks and said ' Take this and divide it among you . For I tell you I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until the Kingdom of God comes .'

And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it , and gave it to them saying , ' This is My body given to you; do this in remembrance of Me '

In the same way , after supper He took the cup , saying , ' This is the cup of the new covenant in My blood , which is poured out for you .'

Jesus was in essence saying that He was the Lamb of God ...ready to be sacrificed for the sins of the world , so that all who believed in Him would have eternal life .

Freedom from sin and Death ..

Forgiven and restored to God through His death and resurrection on the cross.

What a Sacrifice - What a Price !

O Sacred - Holy Love



O Perfect love - that with no hesitation - took those lonely steps
Along the Path of Sorrow - just to rescue from destruction -
Such a one as me ...

O Sacred - Holy Love - that bore the cruel nails through tender
Skin and veins - to shed Your sinless blood - so I - the sinful one -
Could one day be set free...

O Precious - Sacrificial Love - that saw beyond the veil of tears and
Pain - and saw my face - not as I was - but
As I yet would be ...

I bow my head - and Thank You
For Your Everlasting Love - for me .

O Sacred - Holy Heart



O Perfect Heart - that chose to love a fallen wretch like me -
And gladly bore my guilt and shame
On that forsaken tree...

O Sacred - Holy Heart - that beat with love - while scorn and
Vile curses railed against You - from the mouths of those
You came to free...

O Precious - Sacrificial Heart - that speaks forgiveness - even
Now - with Hope - and Everlasting Peace and Joy - to all who
Have the ears to hear - and eyes to see...

I bow my head - and thank You
For Your Perfect Love - for me .

As I Bow Down And Say



Now - Perfect - Sacred - Holy - Precious - Sacrificial -
Heart of Love - receive this one who comes to You
Today - and make my heart beat with the tune of gratitude
And Praise - as I bow down before Your cross - as only
The Redeemed can do - and say -
My Lord and God -

I thank You for Your Everlasting Love
For All humanity ...

But - most of all -

I thank You Lord - for Your unending -
Perfect Love - for -
Such a one - as Me .

Happy Resurrection Day !



For All my dear friends at Wikinut

HAPPY RESURRECTION DAY !

May you all experience the Joy of the Risen Saviour in your hearts .

Forgiveness of sin and Life Everlasting .

With love from
Stella X

'A mother’s tears for the death of her son...
as he bowed his head with the words "it is done"..
with fallen tears from heaven..
the earth was truly swept
vast oceans emerging as the angels wept'.

Let us count our blessings for all that is given on a plate, the most precious being a life on this planet. a precursor to what will be - that depends on our deeds. Inspiring and straight to the heart of the matter of love, sacrifice and compassion - siva

perfect love, perfect faith, in a perfect heart, if we could all get a bit closer to how Jesus was, we would all become a little more perfect then too.

Nice message as always Stella.

We would all be in heaven dear spirited if our hearts and lives were perfect .
Alas we all have a little way to go , but with the help of the Holy Spirit we can attain a small part of the Lord's perfection , as we trust in His redeeming work in our lives .
Bless you

God, the creator of all things, makes the life we live, the changes therein, and shows His redeeming work in our world and lives.

With this belief serving both of us, I had a question for you on my recent article about the Pope, where you posted two comments. Please, go there, Stella, and see if you can answer my inquiry about what you said there.
