'When I look at the blood'

  • What do I see when I look at the cross?

    When I look at the blood
    All I see is love, love, love.
    When I stop at the cross
    I can see the love of God

    John 3:16
    New International Version
    16 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.

    But I can't see competition
    I can't see hierachy
    I can't see pride or prejudice
    or the abuse of authority
    I can't see lust for power
    I can't see manipulation
    I can't see rage or anger
    or selfish ambition

    Philippians 2:6-7
    New International Version
    6 Who, being in very nature[a] God,
    did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;
    7 rather, he made himself nothing
    by taking the very nature[b] of a servant,
    being made in human likeness.

    Philippians 2:8
    English Standard Version
    8 And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.

    But I can't see unforgiveness
    I can't see hate or envy
    I can't see stupid fighting
    or bitterness,or jealousy.
    I can't see empire building
    I can't see self importance
    I can't see back stabbing
    Or vanity or arrogance.

    1 Corinthians 13 : 4 - 7

    4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

    I see surrender, sacrifice, salvation,
    humility, righteousness, faithfulness, grace, forgiveness
    Love Love Love........
    When I Stop!....at the cross
    I can see the love of God.

    Luke 22:42
    New International Version
    42 “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.”
