On Calvary

Come with me to Calvary To see the Suffering One. Jesus Christ, God’s Son. His pain and anguish, so intense; Alone He bears God’s wrath; Forsaken, though He’s done no wrong, He walks God’s chosen path.  It is for you and me He hangs In utmost agony Atoning with each drop of blood, From sin […]

The Cross Engulfed in Darkness

Luke 23:44 “And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour.” That darkness was the speech of God at the cross. God’s voice prevailed over the land for three long hours. That speech of God was devoid of love and grace. It was God’s […]

Glorying in the Cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ

Shadows of the Cross

The following article was first given as a speech at the Singspiration held at Hudsonville church on November 23, 1969. Twilight softly shadows the city, silently aloof on its hills.

The Glorious “Way of Sorrows”

Youth of His Church, our thoughts are once more drawn to Christ on Calv’ry. Because we are each one a member of His chosen race, we seek to know the story and its meaning, though we surely cannot comprehend the reason why. Does mere man deem he knows the central motivation of that love wherewith […]

His Blood On Us

The frenzied mob, ferocious, fearing nought, Pressed closer, shouting for the life they sought, And raised their voices in a mighty flood: “On us and on our children be His blood.” The scarlet stains, on that spike-studded cross Where hung the bleeding body, with each toss Of pain re-echoed that rebellious cry Until it reached […]

Others…Not Himself

Himself He cannot save! How true!  All men say it, church and world alike.  Looking at Calvary, that’s one thing that strikes us.  He went on, never thinking for even one moment of coming down from that cross.  He went on, until He had left His life on that tree and had poured out His […]
