How Far Could He See?
He was sorely beaten, upon His head a crown of thorns roughly placed;
Great nails pierced His flesh and the beard was torn from His face.
Placed on a rugged cross with a sign clearly to be seen,
By a sea of faces; crying, mocking, evil, and mean.
Lifted up with two thieves…one on each side,
As a mass of people waited for them to die.
From the cross; upon His back every sin of every man was known.
The perfect Son of God called each sin His own.
How far could He see, is the question asked?
He saw right now right where we are at.
He saw far into the future and as far back as sin’s start.
He accepted the penalty of our every sin so He could reign again in our heart.
Every sin, every shame, and all inability;
He saw and paid for at Calvary.
Great is the day when our opened eyes can fully know,
He rose alive on the third day so His life through us will overflow.
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
1 Corinthians 6:20
For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
2 Corinthians 5:21
For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
