IMMENSE

 

God’s salvation plan is immense,

His redemptive love is intense,

Soon eternity will commence.

Stop, hypocrite, trying to “ride the fence.”

– eab, 4/25/10

Sinners may go to “Gospel sings,” “Christmas dramas,” even church services to be entertained

Saints go to God’s House to worship – Worship is about Him, not us.

“…Repentance…the awakening of a soul

from the sleep of carnal security…”

If you have an eye for the tiny,

Substitutes abound.

If you’ll settle for less-than-the-best,

Second-rates are around.

If “good enough” will do for you,

If stuffed animals make up your zoo,

If church – you can’t wait till it’s through,

Your vows you need to renew.

False is “real” – it has a-hold on you!

then we will always be in need of one;

Could one count the grains of sand,

One could hold in one’s hand,

Moist, mingled, multitudes of quartz;

Could one imagine the huge number,

Counting slumber to slumber,

That line just a few little ports;

Could one pretend to know,

Counting row after even row,

The final tally would be so very grand,

The mind would definitely bend,

Before one came near the end,

Of counting the moist, multitudes of sand.

– eab,  Apr. ‘78

“And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and

the glory, for ever. Amen.”

Re-writing history? It is not just something nations or political groups do.

People re-write their own history:

making some things blacker than they were,

making some things rosier than they were.

WORDY WORDS

WORDY WORDS   (first 8 lines of a 68 line poem)

There are wordy words and worthy words,

And words of little account.

There are sour words and sweet words,

(But not from the same “fount.”)

 

There are Greek words and Hebrew words

Scattered all over the past.

They were, some of them, inspired,

Forever they will last.

– eab, 4/13/10
