Borrow Sermon Illustrations

They borrowed a bed to lay His head
When Christ the Lord came down:
They borrowed the ass in the mountain pass
For Him to ride to town.
But the crown that He wore
And the cross that He bore
Were His own—the Cross was His own.

He borrowed the bread when the crowd He fed
On the grassy mountain side;
He borrowed the dish of broken fish
With which He satisfied.
But the crown .. .

He borrowed a ship in which to sit
To teach the multitude;
He borrowed the nest in which to rest,
He had never a home so rude.
But the crown .. .

He borrowed a room on the way to the tomb
The Passover lamb to eat;
They borrowed a cave-for Him for a grave;
They borrowed the winding-sheet.
But the crown .. .

The thorns on His head were worn in my stead;
For me the Savior died;
For the guilt of my sin the nails drove in
When Him they crucified.
So a crown I shall wear,
Since the cross now I bear;
But His own none other can share.

(Luke 2. 7; 5. 3; 9. 16, 58; 22. 11, 12; 23. 53; John 19. 5, 17)
