He Hit A Nerve


He Hit A Nerve
By Christine Hare Tate

He demonstrated God’s love,
was compassionate and tender…
He reached out with mercy
and was willing to surrender.

His miracles are recorded,
they are not exaggerated.
Despite His wondrous deeds,
He was generally hated.

Historically He was recognized
and respected as a teacher…
He drew massive crowds and
considered a good preacher.

But He came to expose sin
thus spawning indignation,
because He hit a nerve
professing God’s salvation!

Men don’t usually hate
Those who love them,
but they loved their sin more
and turned against Him.

That brings us to the present,
and there’s nothing new to say,
because men still reject Jesus
and quickly turn away!


‘And the judgment is based on this fact: God’s light came into the world,
but people loved the darkness more than the light, for their actions were evil.
All who do evil hate the light and refuse to go near it for fear their sins will be exposed.
[John 3:19-20]
