“Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him away. And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha: Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst. And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was, JESUS OF
THE KING OF THE JEWS.” NAZARETH
John 19:16-19 KJV
Dottie Rambo wrote the beautiful hymn “If That Isn’t Love” The words in this beautiful hymn describe the tender compassionate heart of Jesus. “He left the Splendor of Heaven Knowing His Destiny Was the lonely Hill of Golgotha There to lay down His life for me.”
Think about it! Jesus knew He was going to be crucified for us on the cross and have pain that no one has ever had or ever will have yet He willingly left His home and His Father and all that He had. Pastor Haldor Lillenas wrote a beautiful heart touching hymn about our wonderful Saviour “Glorious Freedom”
The words in this beautiful hymn are true because Jesus set me free from a devastating crippling depression. “Freedom from fear with all of its torments; Freedom from care with all of its pain; Freedom in Christ, my blessèd Redeemer— He who has rent my fetters in twain..” What a precious loving Saviour.
