The love of Christ

My old self has been crucified with Christ.
It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me
(Galatians 2:20; NLT).

1. The love of Christ
Shines in my hands.

2. He walks with me
To light the way.

3. The breath of Christ
Sustains my life.

4. He gives me hope
And strength each day.

5. The blood of Christ
Beats in my heart.

6. He touches me
To make me whole.

7. The peace of Christ
Calms all my fears:

8. He makes his home
Within my soul.



1. He had loved his disciples during his ministry on earth, and now he loved them to the very end (John 13:1; NLT).

2. I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life (John 8:12; NLT).

3. He breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit” (John 20:22; NLT).

4. May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal comfort and a wonderful hope, comfort and strengthen you in every good thing you do and say (2 Thessalonians 2:16-17; NLT).

5. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins (Matthew 26:28; NIV).

6. When Jesus touched her hand, the fever left her (Matthew 8:15; NLT).

7. Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you (John 14:27; NKJV).

He will calm all your fears (Zephaniah 3:17; NLT).

8. All who love me will do what I say. My Father will love them, and we will come and make our home with each of them (John 14:23; NLT).

Christ is all that matters, and he lives in all of us (Colossians 3:11; NLT).

  • Oh wow! I mean this is amazingly beautiful Ruth. I am blown away by our union in His Spirit, this is something very special indeed. I have to say Almighty God has His hand in these writings. May others understand this and be blessed by it in Christ alone. God bless you Ruth.

    • P.s. So your my reader from the Isle of Man! I didn’t know this Ruth, I thought you were from the USA…like most folks. The Isle of Man is a beautiful place.

      • Oh, when did you visit, Alan? It is indeed beautiful, and on a smaller, more manageable scale for those of us handicapped by health issues.
        I don’t know whereabouts you are in Scotland, but as a bird flies straight across the Irish Sea, we are not too far apart! XXXX

      • I have not been to the Isle of Man yet, I have always intended to visit it someday though. I live in Fife on the East coast of Scotland, situated between Dundee and Edinburgh.

    • Yes, God is truly amazing! The day after I’ve written a prayer, when I read it through, it’s as if I had no hand in it at all – just as if it were written by someone else. May God bless you, Alan. I hope you will have a manageable day XXXX
