Eternal

 

You were
born of Me
when you
believed

given
eternal life
My witness
received.

A laid down life is eternal.

“Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God. This is He who came by water and blood – Jesus Christ . . .and it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth. He who believes in the Son of God has the witness in himself. . .And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.” 1 John 5:1,6,10,11 NKJV

God of the Living

“He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living.”  Mark 12:27 NKJV

We don’t have to wait until we die to be with God.

Thank You, Lord, for being my now and forever God.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

You are God
of the living
and not the God
of the dead

for with You
we have eternal life
that starts now
and never ends.

God bless your life in Him today!

Mercy Looking

“But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit,
keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ, unto eternal life.
”  Jude vs. 20-21 NKJV

Love looks for mercy.

Thank You, Lord, for being merciful to me.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

It is there
all around me
as I abide
in Love.

Mercy touching
everything I see
because of what
He’s done.

God bless you as you stay in His love, looking for His mercy.

No Partiality

“For there is no partiality with God.” Romans 2:11

What good news for those who thought they never stood a chance with Him.

Lord, we desire to forgo all that we are partial to, so we can be more like You. And here’s a simple poem . . .

An Equal Shot

Steeped in tradition
religious to the teeth

Paul says God
isn’t partial to these

so whoever can bow down
in sincerity

has an equal shot at
life eternally.

This Is Eternal Life

“And this is eternal life, that they may know You; the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.” John 17:3

The only true God wants us to know Him and be with Him forever.

Thank you, Lord, for sending us eternal life through Jesus. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Within Reach

We can know You
if we want to
we can see You
with our own eyes
we can touch You
if we reach out
we can believe and have
Eternal Life.

The One Thing We Never Lack

“Then Jesus, looking at him, loved him, and said to him, ‘One thing you lack: Go your way, sell whatever you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, take up the cross, and follow me.'” Mark 10:21

You may know this scripture about the rich young ruler who came to Jesus asking what he needed to do to obtain eternal life. What I had overlooked was the part where Jesus looked at him . . .and loved him.

Thank You, Lord, that the one thing we never lack is Your love of us. And here is a simple poem . . .

The Love Motivator

There is always more to do
a higher level to achieve
so having Your love
is the one thing that bolsters me.
No matter where I’m at
in my ability to obey
Your unconditional love
leads me on each day.

God of the Living

“God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.”  Matthew 22:32

As long as we draw breath, we have the opportunity to choose life forever, with God.

Dear Jesus, help us to decide today to believe in You and to call on Your name.  Here’s a simple poem . . .

Kept Alive

God is all about
us living
in His fullness now
and eternally too,
having taken away
death’s graveness
when Jesus rose
from the tomb.

Let’s praise our living God today!
