Circle of Life

In linear time

There are those

Ahead of us

And those

Behind us

But when we unite

And stand in a circle

There is not one

In front of

Or behind another

But rather

There is always

Someone

Beside you

 

Life is not linear

It is eternal

And no matter

What path we take

We will end up

Where we started

 

Revelations 22:13

“I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.”

Original Sin

Who gets the credit

For good or evil actions

Does God get credit for the good

And another get credit for evil

 

All that God created was good

But it was not good

That man should be alone

So he made from the man

A woman

Who was credited for

The original sin

 

She who knew no sin

But her action

Credited to her as sin

 

But that action

Gave rise to a savior

Even if it cost her eternal life

 

So what appears to be

Original sin

In the light that it gave rise

To her savior

Jesus Christ

Turns out to be

The saving grace

 

That action

Brought into existence

Everything we know

 

Life of Christ

It may appear

As if each one of us

Has our own life

 

But the truth is

There is only one life

And each of us

Plays a part in it

 

It is not our life

It is the life of Christ

Eternal life

Which he is sharing with us

 

When do we ever

Get to experience this

Right here

Right now

 

Nothing is greater

Than life

To those who

Do not have one

 

St. John 14:6

“I am the way, the truth, and the life.”

Holy Spirit

Art: The Holy Spirit by Waiting on the Word

There is a place

Beyond the mind

But you must

Overcome the mind

To get to it 

This is the Spirit

 

The mind can

Think and reason

But it cannot know

Jesus Christ

And he who sent him

 

But the Spirit can know

She is the body of Christ

His wife 

And these two are one

 

St. John 17:3

“And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.”

 

 

Death

He came from life to death

For he was not afraid of death

To give himself up to death

For a little while

In exchange for eternal life

 

He would let death take his life

He would give himself to death

Therefore giving death life

 

Bringing life to the dead

Bringing the dead to life

 

+++++++++++++++++++

 

For by his death

Through his death

Because of his death

Many would come to life

Lord of the living

Lord of the dead

 

Romans 14:9

“For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.”
