Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.

Colossians 3:11 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

There might be some surprised when heaven’s gained,

Observing others they had thought were lost.

The Catholic and Baptist have obtained

The victory that’s gained when Christ is crossed.

Denominations do not matter here,

For all who gave their lives to Jesus lives.

The differences we had will disappear;

When baptized in the Spirit grace forgives.

Those covered in His blood are one indeed,

For Christ is one with each who come to Him.

The CEO and pauper both are freed;

We all will sing the same celestial hymn.

Black, red or brown or yellow, tan or white,

We all are one in He who is the Light.

~~~~~~~~~~~

REMEMBER: From the moment you accept Jesus as your Savior and Lord, where He dwells you dwell also.

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

3-15-15 No Longer Two

friends

No matter where you go upon this world,

The Christian that you meet is one with you;

The differences you have are soon unfurled

As children of the Lord no longer two.

Now one in mind and heart and spirit dwell,

The faith you have in Jesus is your bond;

Such unity in love you both can tell,

So manifested from our Father donned.

As Christ shows us compassion, we should, too,

And we with one another be as He;

Now strengthened for the task we’re called to do,

To share the gospel truth for all to see.

Show mercy, grace and love to all you meet;

A brother now, or later saved so sweet.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Be ye all of one mind,

having compassion one of another,

love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous

1 Peter 3:8 KJV
