A CROWN OF THORNS - SHARP - VICIOUS THORNS 

""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

Written by S.C.Mitchell 

Nov 2013.



He bore a crown - but not of diamonds or a golden orb - but 
A crown of thorns - sharp - vicious thorns - the KING of all the kings
Agreed to wear - this crown - to show His Sovereign Majesty - a 
Crown more costly than the greatest Royal hoarde - a crown of pain -
Of more celestial worth than any other gain - to encompass His Regal 
Head and blood-soaked - matted hair - that would fulfill
His purpose - and His Word .

No other king has ever chosen to be robed in purple - stained 
With crimson from the blood that flowed from lashes borne 
Upon their back - and yet - those very wounds were willingly
Received by this - the Greatest King of all the Universe and 
Earth - to bring the healing of the nations - and for you and 
Me - if we should care to recognise their value and 
Their worth . 

Those nails - so similar for driving posts into the hardened 
Ground - were banged into the gentlest flesh that could be 
Found - to hold Him to a post - a tree - from which He bore the 
Curse of Death for you and me - with pain - and yet with joy -
Those nails three - held fast the Only One  -  who could offer full
 Salvation  - now and then - for all humanity - and I for one - am 
Grateful that He chose to bear such agony -
For me

""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

Thank You dear Lord , that You should deem me worthy  of 
such value , that You would pay so high a price to save me 
from the grip of Hell - and set me free  .

Forever - I will say - Thank YOU..

"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

Can you say the same  , my friend , for what the Lord has 
done for you ?

Many blessings ....and a very Happy THANKSGIVING Day .
