Life of Christ

There is always

More to a story

Than meets the eye


The Bible is

Such a story

The story of life


The Bible


The Word of God

Who is eternal


So we say

The Bible is alive

Still unfolding

Before our eyes

And that is true


For that story

Is life itself

The root of

All life

Who we are

The life of Christ

Which has no end


John 1:1

“In the beginning was the Word…”


I Peter 1:25

“But the word of the Lord endures forever.”


Author of Salvation

Only the author knows

The ending to the story

Until the story is made

Into a movie

The characters cast

And the story played out

On the big screen,

Everyone in the story

Knowing how it will end


Hebrews 5:9

“And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation, unto all them that obey him.”

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.”



Tree of Knowledge

The Shadow of Death by William Holman Hunt 1873


Of all the trees

In the garden

You may eat freely

But if you eat from

The tree of knowledge

You will die


It is not free

You will pay for that

With your life


And so she did

Being the mother of all life

They all died

So her savior could live


No sin

No savior

No story



Mind of Christ

He put all thoughts

That are here today

In a parade, a story,

Marched them through time

And brought them all to life


What is here now

Was here in the beginning



Word of God

The Bible allows us

To look back through time


From sin to salvation

It is written from

Another perspective

For the author

Would have to see it all first

Then tell the story

Through those who were living

At the time 


We can see those 

Who came before us

And they can  see us

Through the Word of God
