5-15-14 Maintaining the Presence of Christ (a Sonnet)


I asked the Lord “Reveal Yourself to me,”

And waited silently for His reply.

Then calm laid o’er my heart and set it free

While His clear words spoke to me with a sigh:

“If you love Me and keep My few commands,

Both God and I will love you without end;

Reveal My words and works across the land

And you will see Me everywhere, my friend.”

I praised His name to all who stopped to hear,

I loved my neighbors as myself and more.

Just like He promised, Jesus did appear

In all things great and small, in truth and lore.

He lives, and wants to show Himself to you;

Reveal His love in all you say and do.


“The one who has My commands and keeps them is the one who loves Me.

And the one who loves Me will be loved by My Father.

I also will love him and will reveal Myself to him.”

John 14:21
