11-30-15 Love

love one another

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

John 15:17 KJV



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.

6-28-15 The Children of Wrath

child of wrath

Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

Ephesians 2:3 KJV


The world is filled with sin up to the brim

And we think we are outside looking in.

I tell you, brother, things are looking grim,

But don’t pretend you’re perfect in your win!

Instead of pointing fingers at the rest,

Remember you were where they are right now.

Right now it is God’s grace that has you blessed;

Without it you’d have hell to pay, and how!

You may have been a step from reprobate

When you chose to accept the Savior’s hand.

Each day such people cross right by your gate.

Please give them love, it may be their last stand!

Don’t be judgmental, be compassionate.

Without Christ’s cleansing blood you’d be unfit.

8-20-14 Still in Darkness


The world is filled each day with so much hate;

The sons of darkness roam the streets for blood.

Beware the ones who claim the Light is great,

But swims within the murk of evil’s flood.

You know the ones who stink of Satan’s touch

Although they bathe in virtue’s sweet perfume.

They walk with nose upright a tad too much

And point their finger all around the room.

The food may look so pleasing to your eye

But if the taste’s not right you will not eat.

The ones professing righteousness are sly

But just beneath the skin lies rotten meat.

            You can’t love Christ and hate your fellow man

            There is no room for loathing in God’s plan.


Whoever says he is in the light

and hates his brother is still in darkness.

1 John 2:9 ESV
