If you want to follow Christ

We will speak the truth in love,
growing in every way more and more like Christ
(Ephesians 4:15; NLT).

If you want to follow  Christ,
Face all you feel
With honesty
And love.

If you want to live like him,
Treat every thought
With honesty
And love.

If you want to grow like Christ,
Say every word
With honesty
And love;

And if you want to be like him,
Serve everyone
With honesty
And love.

Anyone who wants to be first
must be the very last,
and the servant of all

(Mark 9:35; NIV).

  • “And now thee three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13:13 (NIV)

    It’s wonderful how you always share scripture references with your poems, Ruth. It’s equally wonderful how your words and references bring other scriptures to mind for the reader. Thank you, and God Bless!
