Message From An Empty Tomb

He chose to suffer, bleed and die;
To purchase life for you and I.

But do not look inside the tomb,
It’s just a cold and empty room.

But model your life after His,
That you may know eternal bliss.

For through His surrender to God’s will,
He paid in full your whole sin bill.

And now He lives forevermore,
On Heavens bright and shining shore.

But one day will return again,
So please be ready then my friend.

To take your leave of this earthly strain,
Forever in heaven with Him to reign.

No He’s not here behind this stone,
He now is in His rightful home.

And the life He lived while here below,
Was lived so we might fully know.

The way to hear one day like Him,
Well Done! Well Done! Come enter in!

redemption. beautiful.

by jason c dukes

love that had to be given.
a selfless God.
a generous Creator.
an overflowing heart.

loneliness that had to be driven
by a relational God
for the created to know
intention from the start.

garden life.
two trees. one choice.
know all. know strife.
know life. hear His voice.

selfishness. fear.
a naked realization.
an overwhelming shame.
a place to hide.

Creator comes near.
where are you?
I am here.
come abide.

garden death.
consequences now.
history’s quest.
return somehow.

the Lover knew
yet made us anyway.
plan in place
even before the 1st day
to restore His love
back into His way.

the Son comes near.
announces the Kingdom.
commands us to love.
and dies.

restoration is here.
believe His love.
trust His enough.
ignore the lies.

the garden anew.
one day. restful.
thanks to You.
redemption. beautiful.
