There’s no such thing

There is a spirit within people, the breath of the Almighty within them (Job 32:8; NLT).

I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me! (Matthew 25:40; NLT).

The Lord must wait for you to come to him so he can show you his love and compassion (Isaiah 30:18; NLT).

Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends (Revelation 3:20; NLT).

**************************

 

Lord God,
There’s no such thing
As an outsider –

A stranger,
Or a foreigner,
Or foe –

There’s only you,
Within us all,
Without exception,

Waiting
To be welcomed
In our hearts.

Lord of laughter

I am the way, the truth and the life (John 14:6; NLT).

I am the light of the world (John 8:12; NIV).

Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows (John 16:33; NLT).

Take up your cross, and follow me (Mark 8:34; NLT).

*************************

 

Lord of laughter,
And of life,

Lord of dancing,
And of light;

Lord of sickness,
And of loss,

Help us all
To bear our cross.

Critical mass

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

In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus (Philippians 2:5; NIV).

Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ (Ephesians 5:2; NLT).

I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one (John 17:21; NLT).

********************************

 

As more and more of us, Lord God,
Become more like your Son,

A critical mass of love will grow,
And spread to everyone.

Then all of us on earth will be
Transfigured, just like him,

Till we are one in love, with you –
And no more hate or sin.

Living water

Anyone who believes in me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare, ‘Rivers of living water will flow from his heart’ (John 7:38; NLT).

The Lord [is] the fountain of living water (Jeremiah 17:13; NLT).

*******************************

 

May your living water
Flow through us
To others, Lord;

May your living water
Flow through us
To all.
