Answering Each One

 

Walk in wisdom
continue in prayer

redeeming the time
with thanksgiving

letting your speech
be seasoned with salt

full of grace and mercy
for living.

**********

You are with me as I speak.

**********

“Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving,”

“meanwhile praying also for us, that God would open for us a door for the word , to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in chains, “

“that I might make it manifest, as I ought to speak.”

“Walk in wisdom toward those who are outside, redeeming the time.”

“Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one.”

In All

 

You are all
and in all

so we are
identified

with You and Yours
forever

no longer cast off
marginalized.

**********

You are with me and my identity is in You.

“Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds,”

“and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him,”

“where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcised nor uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave nor free, but Christ is all and in all.”

Set My Mind

 

We have died
to worldly principles

and seek those things
above

setting our minds
on Jesus Christ

who’s at the right hand
of God.

**********

I can set my mind on eternal things for You are with me.

**********

“Therefore, if you died with Christ from the basic principles of the world, why, as though living in the world, do you subject yourself to regulations – “

“If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.”

“Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.”

“For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.”

Colossians 2:20 , 3:1,2,3 NKJV

Made Alive

 

We were buried with You
in baptism

raised with You
through faith

once dead in our sins
we’re alive again

together with You
remade.

**********

I am alive with You, for You are with me.

**********

“. . .buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead.”

“And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses,”

“having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross.”
