The cross

I have just listened to a version of the Old Rugged Cross and one of the lines really struck me. It went something along the lines of swapping the cross for the crown.

It's like times like now, fresh from a disagreement with Niall that I feel the weight of my sin. It is almost as if I can feel the weight of it on Jesus. Like every time I sin I am hurting Him. I have to remind myself of what He said on the cross... 'It is finished.' His pain is finished and I am not still hurting Him.

I got forgiveness, help to live my life now and the crown/Heaven to come.

What did He get?

The joy of seeing His children accept His gift. :) That's the best I can figure.
