The greatest tragedy

“My people are foolish and do not know me,” says the Lord Jeremiah 4:22; NLT).

They never call on the Lord (Psalm 14:2-4; NIV).

You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realise that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked (Revelation 3:17; NIV).

He loves us with unfailing love (Psalm 117:2; NLT).

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

Lord God,
The greatest tragedy
Of all
Is living unaware of you,
And of your love.

All are one

Whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:17; NIV).

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

The Lord our God is one (Mark 12:29; NIV).

There is one Lord […] who is over all and in all and living through all (Ephesians 4:5-6; NLT).

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

I love you, Lord,
But there’s no me,
Nor you,
For we are One.

We love you, Lord,
But there’s no us,
Nor you,
For all are One.

One Lord, one God,
One Love,
That’s all there is –
For all are One.

God is all

In seething, blood-red darkness,
At the heart of silent prayer,
No sense of self remains,
And God is all.

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

The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters (Genesis 1:2; KJV).

I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End (Revelation 22:13; NLT).

Quaker Meeting

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

Where two or three are assembled in my name, I am there among them (Matthew 18:20; NET).

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

Lord God,

In this precious hour
Of silence,

May we each see
Only what we need to see,

Hear
Only what we need to hear,

Learn
Only what we need to learn,

And say
Only what we need to say.

Your purpose

 

Lord God,

At last,
I understand
Your purpose –

You want us
To become Love,
Just like you.

 

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

A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another (John 13:34; NIV).

Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our own image, to be like us” (Genesis 1:26; NLT).

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

Put on your new nature, created to be like God (Ephesians 4:24; NLT).

Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do (Ephesians 5:1; NLT).

God is love (1 John 4:16; NLT).

We shall be like him (1 John 3:2; ESV).
