The Way of Christ

We can go the way of Christ

Or the way of the world

The choice is ours

The way of Christ is

Becoming one with God

Showing us who we really are

 

The way of the world

Will tell you who you are

And will define who you are

To the point that you will believe

What others think of you

 

St. John 10:30

“I and my Father are one.”

 

St. John 16:33

“I have overcome the world.”

 

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.”

Light

It is my life

The life I have lived

That brought me

To Jesus Christ

 

If it were not for the lights

Along the way

I would have traveled

On my path alone

Through the darkness

 

It is these lights

Christ placed on my path

That brought me to him

To become one with him

 

St. Matthew 5:14

“Ye are the light of the world…”

 

St. John 8:12

“…I am the light of the world:  he that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”

 

St. John 14:6

“…I am the way, the truth, and the life…”

 

 

 

 

 

Spirit

The spirit perceives one thing

That being Christ

Who is manifest in many ways

We perceive the same thing

In different ways

 

How is it there is only one thing to see

Yet each perceives that one thing differently

Why can’t we all see it the same way

How the spirit sees it

Which is in all ways

Therein lies the glory which is Christ

 

The master who reveals it all

Only to the spirit

Only to the holy

The only one who can see him—his wife

To whom he reveals himself

With whom there is a bond

That cannot be broken

 

Between these there is no veil

Between these there is no wall

Between these there is no difference

There is only peace

There is nothing between them

 

No time, no distance,

No object can come between these two

For they have a bond so strong

They can see through what is not there

(That which is perceived by our senses)

To each other

They only see each other

Therefore they did not become

Lost in their senses

 

Anchored to each other

Through all those

Who came between them

One at the beginning

One at the end
