I Was On His Mind...

As you would know if you've been here on Life with Lynnie (LwL) for even a short time, I enjoy my Lord's Day.

Today, being SONday, it is time for me and indeed, for all who love God, to honour and glorify Him.  In addition to worshipping Him, in grace and truth, I enjoy honouring Him, through music.

While this music video is by The Florida Boys, entitled The Florida Boys Farewell at NQC 2007, it features their song, When He Was On The Cross (I Was On His Mind).  Here is a link, so you can listen and/or sing along:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w6VL-lEV87M.  The lyrics are below.

When He Was On The Cross (I Was On His Mind)

I'm not on an ego trip
I'm nothing on my own
I make mistakes, often slip
Just common flesh and bones

But I'll prove someday just what I say
I'm of a special kind
When He was on the cross
I was on His mind

A look of love was on His face
And the thorns were on His head
The blood was on that scarlet robe
And stained a crimson red

Though His eyes were on the crowd that day
He looked ahead in time
When He was on the cross
I was on His mind

He knew me, yet He loved me
He whose glory makes the Heaven shine
I was so unworthy of such mercy
Yet when He was on the cross
I was on His mind

Yet when He was on the cross
I was on His mind


I truly find this to be a beautiful song.  Not just because the singers recorded it well. 

Mainly, because it shows how I feel about what Jesus did on the cross at Calvary.  For me.  And, for you, if you are saved.

Thinking of how He gave Himself for all who will believe, I thought about John 19:30, "When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit."

Yes, His life ended.  His life, that He had used to tell those who needed salvation, about what to do.

He didn't have to give up His life.  He did so, because of love for God the Father... and for us.  For, we were on His mind.

He could have chosen to be disobedient to God, the Father.  He could have chosen to not come to earth, at all.

Even when He came to earth in the form of a human, He didn't have to stay.  He could have elected to leave at any time.

He didn't have to allow Himself to be hurt, abused, and hung on a wooden cross where He would give up His human life.

He didn't have to be resurrected.  But, by doing so, He showed the world that He had everlasting life.

Just as we will, by believing upon/trusting in Him. 

If you do not yet know Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, please come to Christ, today.  Tomorrow, may be to late.


Until next time...
