Made Better

“That very day Pilate and Herod became friends with each other, for before that they had been at enmity with each other.” Luke 23:12

These two enemies becoming friends after seeing Jesus has me thinking that every single person who encounters Him, even in a small way, is made better.

Oh Jesus, may we let You brush up against someone through us today. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Encounters of the Jesus Kind

Brush up against Him
and you won’t be the same

take a little look
and be forever changed

full out believe Him
and be torn apart

as He rents the veil from your eyes
and plunges truth into your heart.


  1. Thanks, Deb

    One encounter with Him is enough to bring eternal change. Cool. I like that!


  2. Deb, I love this poem! The thought of Jesus plunging truth into our hearts is too wonderful to comprehend sometimes. Peace, Linda

    and plunges truth into your heart.”
