God's Family


We’re saved by grace we’re called to stand

As Jesus’ chosen few

Yet some would rise with sword in hand

Against a brother Jew


Crying like fools “They killed The Lord”

“Of life they’ll take no part”

Whilst “all” mankind have borne the sword

Piercing Jesus’ heart


We all have sinned and fallen short

We all have disobeyed

We all have doubted Christ’s report

And fouled with shame have strayed


Our God had Jesus crucified!

The Lord on Heaven’s throne

That Christ on earth be glorified

To change our hearts of stone     


Jesus a Jew bore all our sin

A Jew yet God’s true Son

A Jew without yet God within

Through whom life’s war is won


From those entrusted with The Word

In whom God’s Lamb was born

Comes Truth comes Light we’ve seen and heard  

Bringing Salvation’s dawn


Were Mathew, Mark and James not Jews?

Weren’t Peter John and Paul?

Do these not speak to church filled pews?

To hearts who’ve heard The Call


When in the arms of Heaven’s Lamb

When truly born anew

We’re in God’s clan of Abraham

Where Jews are family too.....

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.
