Why Was Christ Crucified?
By Tom D Blakely
What do we look for in this life?
We strive for more and more.
So many things that we must have
Let’s stop, and think what for?
For when our casket’s lowered down
Six feet below the earth.
What is there left of all we had?
Our dates of birth and death?
There is no dignity in death
For either rich or poor,
Or do you think you are so good
It makes your death worth more?
A bigger funeral perhaps?
Important people there?
As if that changes anything
You’re gone, why would you care?
But what about your living soul
Still very much awake?
For if you die still in your sin
Then hell will be your fate…
So many hear that God is love
Forgetting Jesus died.
But will they ever understand
Why Christ was crucified?
“For the wages of sin is death;
but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
