Spirit of God

No matter what it is

If it is not shared

It is nothing

And so to us

Christ gave his spirit

Not to one but to all

 

Whoever can receive it

Let him receive it fully

The spirit is given

Without measure

It is free to all

Who can receive it

 

St. John 4:24

“God is a Spirit…”

Truth

What veils the truth

From our comprehension

 

The mind is limited

In its understanding

But the Spirit has no limits

 

Truth and love

Are plain to see

I in you

And you in me

 

Love is a commitment

Based on truth

 

Without truth

There is no love

Without love

There is no marriage

 

Without marriage

There is no unity

 

St. John 14:17

“Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive…but ye know him; for he dwells with you, and shall be in you.”

Word of God

His word is like an echo

That when sent out

Returns to him

Again and again

 

But it returns to him

Hollow, empty

Nothing but an echo

Of his words

 

When will his word

Return to him fulfilled

And who can receive it

 

St. John 10:16

“And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.”
