The worst and the best

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

Everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard (Romans 3:23; NLT).

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

Lord God,
I live in you,
And you in me.

Perhaps I am
The very worst
Of you,

But you, Lord,
Are the very best
Of me.

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.

I live in you

All who confess that Jesus is the Son of God have God living in them (1 John 4:15; NLT).

My whole being longs for you (Psalm 63:1; NIV).

Christ lives within you (Romans 8:10; NLT).

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

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

 

Lord,
I live in you,
And long for you;

While you, Lord,
Live in me,
And long for me.

We are one

There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male and female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus (Galatians 3:28; NLT).

…whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit (1 Corinthians 6:17).


Lord,
There’s neither us,
Nor them
For we are one.

There’s neither black,
Nor white
For we are one.

There’s neither he,
Nor she
For we are one.

And there’s neither me,
Nor you –
For we are one.
