Experience Christ

To experience Christ

We must experience life

It is through Christ we have life

So it must be through life

We have the experience of Christ

Of becoming one with God

 

St. John 14:6

“I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

 

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.”

Love

Our deepest desire

Is to be loved

But first

We must love

 

But falling in love

Is not for the faint of heart

But for the brave

Those not afraid

To get hurt

 

Because there is always

That chance

 

But the courageous

Dive in anyway

To experience love

 

So I dared

To love another

And have been hurt

Deeply

Though not by love

 

But by the one

I mistook for love

 

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

 

Love taught me

Everything it could be

 

But love also taught me

Everything it is not

 

St. Matthew 5:44

“But I say unto you, Love your enemies…”

 

Love

Christ teaches

From experience

 

To teach love

One must be love

And God is love

 

Christ teaches love

 

That which was here

In the beginning

Before the foundation

Of the world

When he loved us first

 

To teach love

One must first

Have loved

 

St. John 17:24

“…for thou loved me before the foundation of the world.”

 

I John 4:19

“We love him, because he first loved us.”
