    Old Cross, New Cross
    An Original Work / March 3, 2018

    The old cross is the cross
    On which our Savior died.
    He took our sins upon himself,
    And he was crucified.

    He died upon that cross
    To put our sins to death,
    That we might die with him to sin
    And live to righteousness.

    The new cross, not the same.
    On sin it puts no blame.
    It satisfies the flesh of man.
    He does not have to change.

    Its god does not require
    We leave our flesh’s desire.
    It modifies and pacifies.
    It strives to not offend.

    But where, in all, lies truth?
    It’s found in Jesus Christ.
    He said that we must die to sin,
    Live to His righteousness.

    His Holy Spirit, gave,
    To live within our lives,
    To take away the pow’r of sin.
    We live victorious!

    So, no one has to sin.
    Our Lord has made a way
    That we can walk in holiness
    And live for Him each day.

    In truth, we must believe,
    By faith, our Lord receive.
    Accept Him now to be your Lord,
    And walk in victory!

    The world of evangelicals is often populated by glossy magazines and political prominence and quests for popularity. But - as your poem so eloquently states - where is the old Cross?

    It all comes from the Lord. Yes, that is the question, indeed.

    Someone in Scotland was in court, and said: God is my advocate (Scottish word for lawyer). The judge replied: The defendant would be well advised to obtain the services of an advocate who is better known in this part of Scotland.

    Similarly, and sadly, in evangelicaldom, also, the God of the Bible and the Old Cross, should be much better known than is actually the case.
