8-5-15 Two As One

Two as One

6 But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.

7 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife;

8 And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.

9 What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

Mark 10:6-9 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

A man should leave his parents for his wife

And she should cleave to him the same way, too.

Their marriage bond should last for all their life,

For they are one in essence, no more two.

God made both man and woman for this end,

To share a single love that’s greater still.

He fit them perfectly to then transcend

The normal bond of friendship and good will.

What God intended let no man pervert;

One woman and one man are meant to be,

And any other way would then subvert

The sovereign will of God, His set decree.

Then two as one becomes one with the Lord;

Beloved and beloved, one accord.

3-23-15 Abide in Me

abideime

You are the branch, I am the vine, you see.

If you would bear good fruit, Abide in Me.

You seek the truth, the truth will set you free.

If you would know the truth, Abide in Me.

Love God with all you have, we both agree.

If you would love Him more, Abide in Me.

Just call on Me and I will hear your plea.

To have whate’er you ask, Abide in Me.

You must keep My commandment, that’s the key.

To love as I love you, Abide in Me.

The way to Heaven has just one decree:

To walk the streets of gold, Abide in Me.

I am the way, the truth, the life to thee.

To rest within My arms, Abide in Me.

Abide in Me
