In our place

In our place His Holiness
Battled in the wilderness,
Victorious, now each of us,
Stand with Him in our distress.

Tempted yet He did not sin,
To the devil’s great chagrin,
Made a way to enter in.
To lose your life is how to win.

Mark 1:12,13 -“and immediately the Spirit driveth him into the wilderness. And he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him.”

    🙂 (I love your poems, thought I’d try and see if I could write a “second verse” to one of yours, it’s harder than it looks!)
