Spoken Words

Written by Julie

Spoken word is basically poetry, but it’s spoken (obviously) and meant to provoke a reaction from the audience. Well, these three spoken word videos I’m going to share with you {the titles are linked to the YouTube videos} definitely provoked reaction/emotions from me. I hope they touch you as well. šŸ™‚

My Name Is” is written as if Barabbas were speaking to Jesus. It really brought home to me that Jesus died for my sins, that that was the punishment I deserved.

For a good man
one might die
But then
why would You die for me

That was my place on Calvary

You took what I deserved, Jesus
That was my cross

What’s So Good About Good Friday?” starts off by asking “how can one describe such a day?” and goes on to describe it–from two different perspectives, you could say. šŸ™‚

so what’s so good about Good Friday?
just one thing:
that the blood of Jesus
can reverse the curse of sin
and raise the dead to life.

This video proclaims “You Need Not Say Goodbye“–at least, to Jesus. If you must say goodbye though, there are some other things you can say goodbye to. šŸ™‚

speak and be free
but don’t goodbye to me
yes, you’ll see them put the spear in my side
but remember
it’s only Friday

So yeah, this is a shorter post, but if you listen to the videos, that’ll be *pauses to do math* about sixteen-and-a-half minutes! (It’s worth it. šŸ˜‰) Remember: Jesus took what we deserved and can reverse the curse of sin, and we don’t need to say goodbye to Him!
