Love of Christ

The only constant

In my life

Is Jesus Christ

And his undying

Love for me

 

When will we

Stop clinging

To the illusion of love

And realize God

Who is love

 

We will learn

In the end

What we knew

In the beginning

The love of Christ

For us

 

I John 4:10

“Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us…”

I John 4:19

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

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.”

Born Again

Art: The Holy Spirit by Waiting for the Word

Mary gave birth

To Jesus Christ

But Christ was not

Born of God

Until his baptism

By water and spirit

 

ST. Mark 1:10-11

“And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him.  And there came a voice from heaving, saying, Thou art my beloved Son…”

St. John 3:5

“Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.”

Holy Spirit

Art: The Holy Spirit by Waiting for the Lord

The one you see

Whom the Spirit

Descends upon

Is the Son of God

 

John was a witness

To the Spirit landing

On the head of Jesus

As he came up

From the water

 

She found a place

To rest her foot

She is the Holy Spirit

The dove sent

From the ark

 

St. John 1:32-34

“And I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him…And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.”

True Love

True love

Cannot be broken

It is a bond so deep

It cannot be touched

It is that which holds

Two together

And makes them one

 

The bond is a merging

Of the two

That it brings together

 

Like a marriage

Joins a husband and wife

This bond is a marriage

And the joining

Of two into one

The conception

Of true love

 

St. Matthew 10:8-9

“And they twain shall be one flesh…What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”

 

 

Son of Man

Man struggles

To find out

Who he is

 

Though who he is

Has manifested

As everything

That exists

So he can see

Who he is

And still

He does not see

 

So everything

That man has created

Has been in his struggle

To remember

Who he is

 

And when he remembers

He ceases from his work

And rests in it

 

Genesis 2:3

“And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.”
