Secret to Life

The secret
To life is
No secrets
My Lord
A clear

St. Luke 8:17
“For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither anything hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.”



Body and Soul

God does not want

Our body

He wants our soul

So while my body

Is committed to sin

For it must fulfill the law

Of sin and death

My soul

Is committed

To God

To establish the law

Of eternal life


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.”






The Good Shepherd

We can say

The shepherd leaves his flock

To find one lost sheep

He finally finds the lost sheep

Picks him up and turns around to go home

And there is his entire flock behind him 

Those who followed him

Those who were looking for him


Or we can say

He left his entire flock

To find the lost sheep

But luckily for him

When he opened the gate

He found the lamb

Just outside the gate

And he brought him into the fold


Who then is lost

None are lost


But the question remains

Are we the lost lamb

The one who struck out on his own

Are we Jesus Christ

The shepherd who found the lost lamb

Or are we the flock that followed


There are those

Who came before Christ

Those who followed

And those who

Walk with him through time

We are all these
