You Knew

As I’ve sat and reflected in the mornings during this extremely important week in the life – death – and resurrection of Jesus – I’ve been once again struck by the realisation that He Knew – He knew all that was to happen to Him – yet – went through with it!

In life we can come up against difficult times – yet – we face them – more often than not – not knowing what will happen.

We sometimes say ‘I wish I had known’ – yet – my guess is that so many of the difficult times in our lives would be harder for us if we had known.

Jesus not only knew all that was to come – but chose to see it through.

His love for you – His love for me – was so great!

 

You knew Lord – as You sat to eat – and passed the cup – You knew

No wonder that You sweat – great drops of blood – no wonder that You cried – You knew

Yet in silence there You stood – accused – beaten – mocked – crowned with thorns – and ridiculed – offering no resistance – yet – You knew

And – knowing – walked up Calvary – allowed the nails to tear Your flesh – and – there as You died – You knew

Knew all the time what it would mean – to show Your love for me – to set me free – yet knowing didn’t stop You

What can I say – in the face of all that – but – I know

Know the extent of Your love – and the price You paid

For me – whom – You also Knew

    It’s good to remember what He went through. To remember the phenomenal sacrifice, of pain, torture, death. So easy to become complacent and ignore His act, his choice through Love.
