Son of God

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

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.”

Revelation 21:7
“He that overcomes shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.”

Death

Are we afraid

To lose our self

 

Christ was not afraid

Because he knew

It was not the end

 

Death was just

Another obstacle

To overcome

 

St. Matthew 16:25

“For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.”

 

Adversary

Art: Virgin Mary, artist unknown

Every story has a hero or heroine

And an adversary

And the story is written

Within a time and a place

 

And the story line is such that

Said hero or heroine

Must overcome the adversary

To save the world

 

Or maybe the story is such that

The hero must overcome

The adversary

To save the heroine

 

The Bible is such a story

The hero is Jesus Christ

And he came to save the world

To set us free from sin

The adversary

 

David slew Goliath with a stone

Daniel survived the lion’s den

And Christ overcame the world

 

We are either the hero

Or the adversary

 

If Christ is with us

Who can be against us

 

I John 4:5

“…because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”
