How do you feel when someone you love has died?

It can be hard for us to comprehend sometimes why people die, especially when they have been killed in an accident or by another person, or have died unexpectedly.

So that can make it even more difficult to comprehend why God would allow Jesus to die on the cross, when He could have saved Him…

What He Was Dying To Say by Garry Druery

When Jesus was a boy
With the teachers in the temple
They were so amazed
That a child could speak this way
He was so excited
About His Father’s business
There were so many things
He was dying to say
 
Then after He turned thirty
He went back to the temple
To say He was the Son of God,
The Truth, the Life, the Way
They took Him to a hill
They called the Skull
To render Him silent
But they could not prevent
What He was dying to say
 
He was dying to tell the world
How much He really cared
It wasn’t the old rusty nails
That kept Him hanging there
The expression on His face
Gave the real reason away
He had something on His heart
He was dying to say.
 
He said, “I love you.” “I love you.”
“I love you” is what He said.
He said, “I love you.” “I love you”
And He cared enough
That He wrote it down in red.
 
He was dying to tell the world
How much He really cared
It wasn’t the old rusty nails
That kept Him hanging there
The expression on His face
Gave the real reason away
He had something on His heart
He was dying to say.
 

Jesus died because God loved as so much that he was willing to sacrifice his own son, just so our sins could be forgiven. I cannot begin to imagine how God must have felt, seeing His Son dying. Doesn’t this make you want to repay God even more for all He does for you?

So how can we ever repay God for sacrificing Jesus, so we could be saved? We can give Him our hearts, our lives and our all.
