WHY JESUS?

WHY JESUS?

 

JESUS was born,
       that I might be born twice.

 

HE became poor,
       that I might possess wealth.

 

HE became homeless,
       that I might have mansions.

 

HE was stripped,
       that I always should have clothes.

 

HE was forsaken,
       that I always should have friends.

 

HE was bound,
       that I might have perfect liberty.

 

HE was sad,
       that I might have full joy.

 

HE descended,
       that I should be lifted up.

 

HE became a Servant,
       that I might be a son forever.

 

HE was hungry,
       that I should always have food.

 

HE was made sin,
       that I should share HIS righteousness.

 

HE died,
       that I should never taste eternal death.

 

HE will come down,
       that I might go up.

 

All of this -- that HE might display in me the riches of HIS grace
       and be the companion of God in the heavenlies.
