The Christ of the Cross by Raymond A. Foss
The Christ of the cross
the man in pain
the unblemished lamb
burdened with our shame

Going to the garden
picking up the cup
submitting to God
drinking it up

Mocked and tortured
hanging on the tree
dying abandoned
that we all would be free

Going the way
of all human flesh
yet rising to heaven
to give us true rest

John 1:1-14
“This Sunday, I will continue in a sermon series,
“The Birth of Jesus Christ”, and we will look more closely
at the opening poem in the Gospel of John.
Matthew and Luke tell a beautiful story about the holy birth.
John uses poetry to highlight the meaning of Jesus’ life.
“Logos and Light” are the main ideas John uses in this poetry.
The Christ of Christmas is so much more than a cute baby.
The Christ is the image of God given to guide our lives and
to show us the most important truths for living.”
