The Cross

T	he symbol of suffering, shame, disdain
H	is emaciated body for hours remained
E	ternal love came and paid the ransom 

C	hrist Jesus, God incarnate, as man He came and chose to die
R	ighteous holy, He lived among men, healing and giving abundant life  
O	verturned an evil plan forever that would keep man enslaved
S	et in motion to completion the solitary act ensuring man’s redemption
S	alvation, freedom is now assured for all who believe and repent!

A collaboration-Audrey Carey & #0459587 Jimmy M. Anderson

    Audrey, you and Jimmy did a terrific job on this acrostic! As Easter nears, we need to be reminded of the sacrifice Jesus made to give us the opportunity for eternal life. Thanks to Him, man is no longer "enslaved" by the sin of Adam and Eve. Excellent work!! Love, Carolyn
