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.”


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


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…”



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.”
