I Was On His Mind

Well today was Easter and this morning in church they sung this song. I think the song was really for me and I really wanted to post the song, but I didn't have the words. I said something to my mom about wanting the words and she told me she had them. I am just very thankful for what Jesus did for me. I know some may think that I am nuts, because most people think Christians are nuts. But I have tried Jesus for myself and I will live for him the rest of my life, no matter what anyone says to me. AND I REPEAT NO MATTER WHAT ANYONE SAYS TO ME!

When He was On The Cross
I Was On His Mind
by: Mike Payne & Ronny Hinson
v. 1
I'm not on an ego trip; I'm nothing on my own,
Make mistakes, I often slip, just common flesh and bones;
But I'll prove someday just why I say, I'm of a special kind,
For when He was on the cross I was on His mind.
Chorus
For He knew me, Yet, He loved me,
He whose glory makes the Heavens shine;
So unworthy of such mercy,
Yet, when He was on the cross, I was on His mind.
v.2
The look of love was on His face and thorns were on His head,
Blood was on His scarlet robe, stained a crimson red,
Though His eyes were on the crowd, He looked ahead in time,
For when He was on the cross I was on His mind.
Chorus
For He knew me, Yet, He loved me,
He whose glory makes the Heavens shine;
So unworthy of such mercy,
Yet, when He was on the cross, I was on His mind.

Today we celebrate a risen Savior, but it is also a time to think upon what he has done for all. That he shed his precious blood. At one time a priest would offer a goat for the sins of the people. But in Hebrews 9: 12 it says this.... "Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his (Jesus') blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us." When it talks about Jesus entering in once into the holy place, what it means is he only had to go in one time. Unlike the priest who had to go into the holy place every year to seek forgiveness for himself and all people.
So as I think about the resurrection of Jesus today, I think about the words that Alfred H. Ackley penned back in 1933. "I know that He is living; whatever men may say."

Has someone been giving you a hard time about your faith? I've noticed where you have mentioned about how no one will convince you that Christianity is wrong and I was wondering if someone was trying.
