Why Jesus

JESUS was born,
that I might be born twice.

HE became poor,
that I might possess wealth.











HE became homeless,
that I might have a mansion.

HE was stripped,
that I always should have clothes.

HE was forsaken,
that I always should have friends.

HE was bound,
that I might have perfect liberty.

HE was saddened,
that I might have full joy.

HE descended,
that I should be lifted up.

HE became a servant,
that I might be a son forever.

HE was made sin,
that I should share HIS righteousness.

HE died,
that I should never taste eternal death.

HE will come down,
that I might go up.

All of this -- that HE might display
in me the riches of HIS grace,

and so I can dwell with God in heaven.
