C. S. Lewis on Death & Resurrection

Day 8 of 10 • This day’s reading


Application Thoughts

How deep the Father’s love for us, how vast beyond all measure,

That He should give His only Son to make a wretch His treasure.

How great the pain of searing loss – The Father turns His face away,

As wounds that mar the Chosen One bring many sons to glory.

Behold the Man upon a cross, my sin upon His shoulders;

Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice call out among the scoffers.

It was my sin that held Him there until it was accomplished;

His dying breath has brought me life – I know that it is finished.

I will not boast in anything - no gifts, no power, no wisdom;

But I will boast in Jesus Christ, His death and resurrection.

Why should I gain from His reward? I cannot give an answer;

But this I know with all my heart – His wounds have paid my ransom.

- Stuart Townend

And they sang in a mighty chorus: "Worthy is the Lamb who was slaughtered— to receive power and riches and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and blessing." - Revelation 5:12
