Is there a promise to claim or a lesson to learn? Is there a blessing to enjoy, a command to obey? Is there a sin to avoid or a new thought to carry with me?
It was an ordinary day when my Savior died…
Mankind walked this earth filled with lust and pride.
He carried my cross to Calvary’s hill –
They drove nails in His hands and feet.
All creation heard Jesus’ sinless cry as He paid my sinful bill.
They pierced His side, spit in His face.
Jesus, the God-Man died for humanity.
God the Father was pleased with the payment made.
It was an ordinary day when a way was made for man to be saved.
Thank You, dear Redeemer, for that day so long ago!
Still fresh today – When Love offered eternal Life to all who believe.
By faith, You make it so!
“More about Jesus let me learn, more of His holy will discern, Spirit of God, my teacher be, Showing the things of Christ to me.”

The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. 8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, 9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: 10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; 11 If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.
