Christ Chose To Die So We Will Live

Christ chose to die so we will live,  

and we live to bring glory to God,  

and God’s glory is shone through His grace, 

and by His grace He saves us from our sin, 

and for our sin—Christ chose to die so we will live… 

This free verse is a poem I wrote for my book: Lift Him Up don’t Pull Him Down – The eternal importance of never momentarily taking our Lord’s name in vainA  book explaining the “eternal importance” of keeping God’s name holy, specifically referencing the blasphemous use of OMG and Oh my G**! in society today.

The poem was written as a continuous circular thought containing the unending cycle of love God created. This irrevocable and uninterrupted succession of certainties which God planned in order to save our eternal souls can never be broken. And these certainties are all found in His Word. To attempt to break these certainties (not believe in His Word) is to loose out on eternal life.

Christ chose to die so we will live,

Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. John 15:13

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. John 3:16-17

and we live to bring glory to God,

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31

This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples. John 15:8

and God’s glory is shone through His grace,

All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God. 2 Corinthians 4:15

…through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Romans 5:2

and by His grace He saves us from our sin, 

For sin shall no longer be your master, because you are not under the law, but under grace. Romans 6:14

…so that, just as sin reigned in death, so also grace might reign through righteousness to bring eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 5:21

and for our sin—Christ chose to die so we will live…

I am the resurrection

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; John 11:25

In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross! Philippians 2:5-8

The chapter this poem comes from is titled “What’s In A Name?”  In biblical times baby boys were often named for their character or their surroundings. The name Jesus means “Savior.” God gave this name to His Son because through Jesus’ chosen death on the Cross He saves people from their sins.

So what does the name Jesus also mean? The answer wholeheartedly is – love.
