Sunday’s Extras: Why?

Spring is a season of rebirth. In the coming days the flowers and trees will begin blooming. All of nature will come alive. It is also a time for Christians to reevaluate their faith.

Spring is a season of rebirth.  In the coming days the flowers and trees will begin blooming.  All of nature will come alive.

It is also a time for Christians to reevaluate their faith.  The Easter story is one of hope, forgiveness and spiritual rebirth. 

This week I want to turn our focus toward Easter.  Next Sunday is Palm Sunday, the beginning of Holy Week.  It marks Jesus Christ triumphant return to Jerusalem and the beginning of His final journey to the cross.

Today I discovered this wonderful song by Nicole Nordeman.  The WHY is the reason we celebrate.  I hope you enjoy it.

 

Here are the lyrics for my hearing impaired friends.

Why

We rode into town the other day 

Just me and my Daddy
He said I'd finally reached that age

And I could ride next to him on a horse

That of course was not quite as wide

 

We heard a crowd of people shouting

And so we stopped to find out why

And there was that man
That my dad said he loved
But today there was fear in his eyes

 

So I said "Daddy, why are they screaming?
Why are the faces of some of them beaming?
Why is He dressed in that bright purple robe?
I'll bet that crown hurts Him more than He shows

Daddy, please can't you do something?
He looks as though He's gonna cry
you said he was stronger than all of those guys
Daddy, please tell me why
Why does everyone want him to die?"

 

Later that day the sky grew cloudy
And Daddy said I should go inside
Somehow he knew things would get stormy
Boy was he right
But I could not keep from wondering
If there was something he had to hide

 

So after he left I had to find out
I was not afraid of getting lost
So I followed the crowds
To a hill where I knew men had been killed
And I heard a voice come from the cross

 

And it said, "Father, why are they screaming?
Why are the faces of some of them beaming?
Why are they casting their lots for My robe?
This crown of thorns hurts Me more than it shows
Father, please can't You do something?
I know that You must hear My cry
I thought I could handle the cross of this size
Father, remind Me why
Why does everyone want Me to die?
When will I understand why?"

 

"My precious Son, I hear them screaming
I'm watching the face of the enemy beaming
But soon I will clothe You in robes of My own
Jesus, this hurts Me much more than You know
But this dark hour I must do nothing
Though I've heard Your unbearable cry
The power in Your blood destroys all of the lies
Soon You'll see past their unmerciful eyes
Look there below, see the child
Trembling by her father's side
Now I can tell You why
She is why You must die"
