Vertical Worship - Thank You Jesus For The Cross Lyrics




My life lived for only me
My days spent so sinfully
My heart was dark, my eyes too blind to see
My pride destroying me

But Your life, sent for sin to die
And Your blood, shed to justify
Upon the cross, my ransom to afford
This sinner's great reward

Thank You, Jesus, for the cross
Thank You for the price You paid for us
Giving up Your life to save the lost
Thank You, Jesus, for the cross

The crown placed upon Your head
The nails meant for me instead
Your death became the only way to life
For me to live is Christ

Thank You, Jesus, for the cross
Thank You for the price You paid for us
Giving up Your life to save the lost
Thank You, Jesus, for the cross

    What pagan ideas! Why would God need a human sacrifice in order to forgive sins if he already had the power to forgive sins? An all-powerful God does not need human or animal sacrifices in order to forgive sins. God is not violent. We are saved by Jesus, not by the cross.

    +TheBonzo323 We are saved by Jesus on the cross. the Old Testament echoes the need of blood sacrifice for the remission of sins. Hebrews 9. Sacrifice takes away the sin and what better or more purer sacrifice than what Jesus, God in flesh, took for us. bearing God's very wrath, bearing all our sins. The Cross is a reflection of What JESUS has done on the cross. We're not glorifying the CROSS, however, we are celebrating what Jesus did on the cross for us. Does that make sense?

    Conrad Strubhar

    +TheBonzo323 The wages of sin is death... What better way to show His love for His children than to lay down His own life for us.

    +TheBonzo323 Hebrews 9:22

    Noel Alvarez

    +TheBonzo323 God could not let sin conquer (rule) humanity, He is God, He cannot reversed His word (law He established, the soul that sins shall die). So in his mercy he looked upon us humans and said I must fix this. Now, nobody can bare the punishment of God, only God can bare it, so out of love for all sinners, God gave up His only begotten son (He can take the punishment) and on the cross He punished the sin of humanity to the point that when Jesus was crucified He said: "Father why have you forsaken me?" Please note that sin is a serious business for God, sin is in opposition to God. Then after God punished sin, through the blood of Jesus' sacrifice the debt of sin was paid. Jesus went to the cross pure and sinless, and without blame fulfilling the law to the dot, and blameless as He is, took upon our sin and God in exchange gives redemption to all who come to Jesus. On the third day Jesus was raised from the dead, giving us victory over death. I pray that you may open your heart to the love of Jesus.

    @TheBonzo323 God is not violent? You don't read the Bible do you?
