Remember

The greatest gift

We can give God

Is to remember

Who we are

And Jesus Christ did

 

St. Matthew 27:46

“My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?”

God

There are many lessons

To learn in life

The most important

Who we are

 

And no one can teach us

Because the only way

We can truly learn

Is through the life we live

 

By living the life of God

The one he gave to us

By becoming God

And Jesus Christ did that

 

St. Matthew 16:24

“If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

New Testament

Art: The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci

It cost him his life

To bring to us

The New Testament

 

They killed the messenger

But his message lived

And would take effect

After his death

 

Hebrews 9:16

“For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.”

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.”

Second Coming

When Jesus Christ

Rose from the dead

He took his body with him

 

So when he appears

A second time

His body

Who is his Spirit

Will appear with him

For they are one

 

Where he is I am

He is risen

 

Colossians 3:4

“When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall you also appear with him in glory.”
