Love Wears the Crown


Here’s my life I lay it down,
I give it freely to thee…
A man’s life offered,
In total sacrifice,
He laid it down for all to see…
No greater love could there ever be,
Than what Jesus did for you and me…
Love poured out in blood and tears…
How, dear Jesus, did you forgive?
While watching from the cross impaled
The ones who used the hammer and the nails
Taking your life away…
Help me to forgive this way…
Hurt and pain our training ground
Until we, can at last be found…
Surrendering our life and laying it down.
The greatest sacrifice we will ever give
For those standing in the crowd,
Crying out, “Crucify him! Crucify him!”
They will see…
Love, wears the crown!

John 15:13 King James Version (KJV)
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
Romans 12:1-2 The Message (MSG)
Place Your Life Before God
So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.


I love the Lord Jesus Christ and am passionate about writing. I hope you enjoy the blog and come to visit often.
Then the Lord answered me and said:
“Write the vision
And make it plain on tablets,
That he may run who reads it.
For the vision is yet for an appointed time;
But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie.
Though it tarries, wait for it;
Because it will surely come,
It will not tarry.
“Behold the proud,
His soul is not upright in him;
But the just shall live by his faith. Habakkuk 2: 2-4
