11-30-15 Love

love one another

These things I command you, that ye love one another.

John 15:17 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

LOVE

No simpler command there is than love,

Yet look at all the hate we’ve had since then,

As if we don’t know what He’s speaking of

Or it’s impossible, beyond our ken.

Just for today I beg you take this test

That all you meet is Jesus in disguise.

No matter what they do, how they’re expressed

They really are the Savior synthesized.

You must love everyone, not just pretend;

This is the reason why you still are here.

The Lord put you together for this end:

So you can share His love, each one endear.

It doesn’t matter if they love you back.

Your job is just to love without feedback.

6-9-15 Good

doing good

See that none render evil for evil unto any man;

but ever follow that which is good,

both among yourselves, and to all men.

1 Thessalonians 5:15 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

You child of God, who’s more like Jesus now

Than yesterday, for He now lives in you,

Are so compelled by Grace to not allow

An evil for an evil to accrue.

Observe the Golden Rule more now than then,

For in you dwells the Spirit of the Lord,

And teach this way of life to those who ken;

No good can come when sword begats a sword.

So choose to always serve that which is good

Among your fellow saints and to all men.

If you can do it, anybody could;

The greatest good’s the gospel shared again.

Now promulgate the good, on love rely;

If you don’t feed what’s evil it will die.

5-30-15 Withhold Not Good

withhold not good

Withhold not good from them to whom it is due,

when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.

Proverbs 3:27 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

When payday comes around then pay your bills,

For this due to them you contract with.

When there are those in need don’t buy the frills;

Remember your poor past and give forthwith.

The Lord is full of grace beyond your ken;

The fact that you are here is proof indeed.

Extend that goodness out and now to men,

And when the Spirit tells you, then proceed.

Serve ministries and those who preach the Word;

It helps them bring the lost into the fold.

The means are in your hands, don’t be deferred;

Tomorrow is not yours to put on hold.

Withhold not good from them to whom it’s due;

Just think of all the good God’s given you.

2-10-15 Clearly

Carinae Supernova

The wondrous power of our God is seen,

Invisible Himself beyond our ken,

But clearly known by nature’s noble scene

From supernova grand to simple wren.

But there are those who claim God can’t exist

Because He won’t provide a selfie shot,

Yet proof of Him is always in our midst;

It’s easier to say just what He’s not.

So when the Day of Judgment is at hand

And every knee shall bow before the Lord,

There will be no excuse that can withstand

The final resolution and reward.

You cannot see God sitting on His throne,

But all that He has made is clearly shown.

~~~~~~~~~~~

For the invisible things of him

from the creation of the world are clearly seen,

being understood by the things that are made, 

even his eternal power and Godhead;

so that they are without excuse:

Romans 1:20 KJV
