Draw Near to God

As we draw

Nearer to God

He becomes more

And we become less

Until there is no longer

Any distance

Between him and us

When time ceases to exist

And two become one

 

St. John 3:30

“He must increase, but I must decrease.”

 

James 4:8

“Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you.”

 

Nature or Nurture

Are we what we eat

Or what eats us

Are we in the Spirit

Or is the Spirit in us

Do we become

What overcomes us

 

There is one

Greater than us

Let us be consumed

By that

 

We are consumers

Of the Word of God

We take in the Word

By reading the Bible

Feasting on his flesh

And drinking his blood

It is a never ending well

Of nourishment

For our soul

 

St. John 6:56

“He that eats my flesh, and drinks my blood, dwells in me, and I in him.”

 

Revelation 10:10-11

“And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and at it up…and he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many people, and nations, and tongues, and kings.”

 

 

Christ the Preacher

It was the power

Of the Holy Spirit

Sent from God

To his son

That gave him

The authority

To preach

The word of God

 

St. Luke 4:16

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor…”

 

St. John 1:32

“I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode on him.”
