The Mission Of The Messiah! - Poem by Denis Martindale

When Virgin Mary's womb was blessed,
New life began indeed,
In fact, God's Spirit brought the best,
So that God would succeed...
God's only Son, as prophesied,
Anointing Him, Messiah,
That's why her praise was magnified,
Higher and higher and higher...

To think, that she, God's grace believed,
Poured out her psalm of joy
Before her newborn son received
And saw her little boy...
And what a song of sacred praise,
Reflecting on God's love,
His holiness, His constant ways,
His power from above...

No human father interfered
With promises God made
And so Man's Saviour soon appeared
And in his manger laid...
A prophecy that like a lamb,
Reserved for sacrifice,
He served His God, the great I AM,
Christ came to pay the price...

Atonement, God with Man, at one,
United in one cause,
God's great Messiah was God's Son,
Subservient to His laws...
Unless He proved eternal worth,
God wouldn't free Mankind,
Yet only Christ could save this Earth,
If He were so inclined...

His Mission was at first to live,
The Scripture truths to learn
And armed like this to go on with
The wisdom to discern...
To teach in time what must be taught
To both the young and old,
That's why His holy life's still thought
The greatest story told...

He healed the sick, He raised the dead,
He pointed to Man's sin
And though some thousands Christ had fed,
The next stage must begin...
Thus Judas gave Him up to those
Who hated Jesus Christ,
What happened then the Bible shows...
God's Lamb was sacrificed...

Christ proved His faith that God knew best,
That's why God raised His Son,
That's why, through Him, this world's been blessed,
Because of what He's done...
His words alone, weren't seen enough,
Christ gave His life to God,
He tasted death, for us, in love,
That's why He shed His Blood...

How noble! Yes, that's how we're saved,
Forgiveness in His Name,
No other name so sins are waived,
His only we proclaim...
His Mission's still to preach Good News
Explaining Calvary...
Once done, it's up to you to choose...
I know Christ died for me...
