12-29-15 Knowing

hand

All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.

Matthew 11:27 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

The fullness of the Father’s in the Son;

The power and the glory, love and grace.

All things that are delivered of the One

Belong to both eternal in each case.

The mind can’t comprehend or hope to know

The language of the heart that’s spirit born.

You must go to the cross, you must let go,

You must be broken, beaten, crushed and torn.

When you make Christ your Lord you’re dead to sin;

Until that time the door to Heaven’s sealed.

Give all you are to Jesus to begin

To understand this mystery revealed.

To know your Father you must know His Son;

To know the Son you both must be as one.

~~~~~~~~~~~

REMEMBER: Surrender your will, relinquish your heart, yield yourself to Christ right now.

11-20-14 Spiritual Milk

milk

Just as a newborn babe needs milk to live,

Desire the word of God to feed your soul;

Without it’s nourishment you fail to give

The sustenance you need to make you whole.

Essential truths within the gospel form

A base to grasp much deeper certainties;

The language fundamentals soon transform

What once was gibberish to spoken ease.

How can you understand God’s awsome grace

Unless you know what Jesus did for you?

How can you hope to win the final race

Unless you train your muscles to push through?

Your spirit cries in hunger for the Word;

The Savior’s gentle teachings are preferred.

~~~~~~~~~~~

As newborn babes,

desire the sincere milk of the word,

that ye may grow thereby:

1 Peter 2:2

6-30-14 Clanging Cymbals (a Sonnet)

clanging cymbals

Of all the languages there is not one

That speaks in perfect tone with noun and verb

To represent the essence of love won,

Or of a broken heart tossed to the curb.

Take all the words that men and angels know

And put them in the order of your choice;

Without the beat of love, without its flow,

You’d say pure gibberish in any voice.

The mind with all its skill cannot express

The language of the simple spoken heart;

When ev’ry knee shall bow and tongue confess

None understanding love will e’er depart.

Start learning now to speak the soul of love;

The perfect Teacher is the Lord above.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

If I speak human or angelic languages but do not have love,

I am a sounding gong or a clanging cymbal.

1 Corinthians 13:1 HCS
