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.”

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.”

Salvation

Salvation
Is the revelation
Of Jesus Christ

I Peter 1:9-13

“Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.  Of which salvation the prophets have inquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you…and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.”
