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 the heavenlies.
