On Either Side

On Either Side

********************

On either side of Jesus

sinful men were hung

Guilty as charged of thievery

for the things they’d done

~

One of them joined in

with the mocking crowd

His voice part of the chorus

that jeered and taunted loud

~

The other man refrained

for he knew he was wrong

and he chastised the other

reminding him they belonged

~

 He said Jesus was righteous

and didn’t deserve to die

And that they should be afraid

to be adding to the cries

~

Then he turned to Jesus

and asked if he could be

remembered by the Lord

when He entered eternity

~

When Jesus saw his faith

 He replied assuredly

that he’d be with Him that day

 in Paradise eternally.

This poem is based on one of my favorite Bible passages.

Jesus saves us.

 It’s not our religious activities that make us righteous.

Good works are an outcome of having been saved

and not the means to salvation.

It’s all about Jesus.

Let us fix our eyes on Jesus,

the author and perfecter of our faith,

who for the joy set before him

endured the cross,

scorning its shame,

and sat down at the right hand

of the throne of God.

Hebrews 12:2

Writing faithfully

Crumpled papers

 used and not cast away

 I’ve been busy working on a debut novel.

I’ve completed the first draft of my inspirational mystery (with some romance woven in).

Now I know who’s guilty and who’s innocent.

~

In the real world we’re all guilty.

But we have a Savior, Jesus, who has freed those

(who put their trust in Him )

from the punishment of their sins.

It’s the true Easter Story.

Are you ready for the end of your life story?
