Beneath Thy Cross

I’ve posted this before during this week — Holy Week, as some call it. I just call it a week to remember that Christ died for me.

Am I a stone, and not a sheep, 
That I can stand, O Christ, beneath thy cross, 
To number drop by drop Thy Blood’s slow loss, 
And yet not weep?

Not so those women loved 
Who with exceeding grief lamented Thee; 
Not so fallen Peter weeping bitterly; 
Not so the thief was moved;

Not so the Sun and Moon 
Which hid their faces in a starless sky, 
A horror of great darkness at broad noon— 
I, only I.

Yet give not o’er, 
But seek Thy sheep, true Shepherd of the flock; 
Greater than Moses, turn and look once more 
And smite a rock.

—Christina Rossetti


Round the Sphere Again: Christ's Deity

How Do I Know Christ Is God?
Because scripture affirms it: A list of Scripture texts which attest to the deity of Jesus Christ (The Reformed Reader).

Why Does It Matter to Me?
If he weren’t God, he could not be my Redeemer: Why must the Redeemer be truly God? (New City Catechism)

Does This Mean God Died on the Cross?
No. “It’s the God-man Who dies, but death is something that is experienced only by the human nature, because the divine nature isn’t capable of experiencing death” (R. C. Sproul at Ligonier Ministries Blog).
