Back to the Garden

When Adam and Eve
Left the garden
God went with them
And we can see
In the Bible stories
His continuous presence
Throughout

God leads us
Through sin
To Christ
And Christ takes us
Back to the garden

St. Luke 23:43
“Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise.”

Hidden

You cannot hide

From the presence

Of the Lord

Your life

Is hidden

In the Bible

 

Colossians 3:3

“For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.”

St. Luke 12:2

“For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.”

 

 

Genesis 3:8

“…and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God amongst the trees of the garden.”

 

 

 

Source

We as a people

Have the luxury

Of hindsight

 

From where we are now

We can reflect back

To the very beginning

Of existence as we know it

 

Through science

We see the physical world

 

But through the scriptures

We see the spiritual world

 

Science has the big bang

As a creation story

Or something out of nothing

To account for our physical being

 

The Bible also has a creation story

Showing us our spiritual evolution

To reveal to us our spiritual body

 

Science reaches back to the

Depths of time in space

To find the beginning of time

 

Likewise through the scriptures

We can reach back

To the depths

Of our spiritual source

Life of Christ

There is always

More to a story

Than meets the eye

 

The Bible is

Such a story

The story of life

 

The Bible

Represents

The Word of God

Who is eternal

 

So we say

The Bible is alive

Still unfolding

Before our eyes

And that is true

 

For that story

Is life itself

The root of

All life

Who we are

The life of Christ

Which has no end

 

John 1:1

“In the beginning was the Word…”

 

I Peter 1:25

“But the word of the Lord endures forever.”

Living Word of God

The Bible is like a woman

Who carries within her

The Word of God

And she brings it to fruition

In due time

 

Christ will come to us

Through her

She is our salvation

The mother of all living

The living Word of God

 

Genesis 3:20

“And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.
