Our essence

The Son is the radiance of his glory and the representation of his essence (Hebrews 1:3; NET).

God created everything through him, and nothing was created except through him (John 1:3; NLT).

God is Spirit (John 4:24; NLT).

“I am the Alpha and the Omega – the beginning and the end,” says the Lord God (Revelation 1:8; NLT).

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

Lord,
You are our essence,
And our centre.

Lord,
You are our maker,
And our friend.

Lord,
You are our life-blood,
And our spirit.

Lord,
You’re our beginning,
And our end.

Centre

Be still and know that I am God (Psalm 46; 10; NIV).

Be silent before the Sovereign Lord (Zephaniah 1:7; NIV).

You are the temple of the living God (2 Corinthians 6:16; NLT).

All who live in love live in God, and God lives in them (1 John 4:16; NLT).

The spirit returns to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NIV).


Lord,
At the still and silent centre
Of my being
Is my shining, perfect soul:

The part of me
That’s also part of you –
For we are one.
