4-9-15 The Bond of Peace

Bond of Peace

The Holy Spirit binds us all as one

Who came unto the shadow of the cross

And gave our life to Christ, God’s first-born Son,

Now counted closer than a family’s gloss.

So here we are as one and Spirit led.

The things that caused contention surely cease,

For now the love of Christ’s the common thread

That brings so naturally a bond of peace.

Where there was once dissension we find grace,

No longer slave to sin and anger’s hook;

Forgiveness helps us run the longer race,

A stamina not gained by hook or crook.

When differences arise within the flock,

The key of Christ will open any lock.


Endeavour to keep the unity of the Spirit

in the bond of peace.

Ephesians 4:3 KJV

    We are glue. We are locksmiths. We are empowered. We are free. We do not need to fight. We have a hook in the nose. The images conjured here are boggling me. Just for the record, I could have gone the other way tooo and endorse this wonderful sonnet in the WORD…. We have peace that passes understanding Philippians 4:7 …… We have grace. Ephesians 2:7 We have anointing. IsaiAH 61:1; Luke 4:18 The key of CHRIST did more than deal with hell. Revelations 1:18 but opens and shuts doors that none but HIM can do. Revelation 3:7,8 HallELuJAH!
