The Germ Of Life

What fools still lost believe absurd
What scoffers mock and slight
Is Heaven's Seed is Heaven's Word
God's Son salvation's Light

We need to plant what God would sow
Before falling asleep
In Truth and grace allow to grow
Love's promises to reap

Each promise; is a living Seed 
A germ of The Divine
A righteous fruit, a loving deed
Growing within The Vine

Let wisdom heed The Fathers law
Whilst thriving straight and sound
Steadily upward strong and sure
Steeped in hallowed ground

Ordained The One who rose above
Revealed on Cavalry's Tree
Obedience is the fruit of love
A truthful heart gives free

Yet who'll believe Heaven's report
Accept God's living Word
Receive the facts Christ Jesus taught
And live by what they've heard

We need to practice what we preach
All Jesus died to give?
Through which His rising now will teach
The living how to live

Share with the lost the walking dead
Spreading The Word that lives
Feeding the world life’s living Bread
That Heaven daily gives ......

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
