To Be One in Christ
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Michael P. Johnson
Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson

†† To be one in Christ

In Christ we learn to serve as one

To live for one another

Though only will it first be done

Through loving oneís brother

To love each one, as well we might

From deep within the soul

Thus one and one will then unite

To be in Christ made whole

Taking each other by the hand

Living for one and all

When this in truth we understand

Not one of us will fall

Such strengthís found only in a chain

When link joins onto link

United; it can take the strain

Greater than one would think

People yellow, brown, black or white

Though peasant king or queen

Through Jesusí Flame, Godís Guiding Light

We form a great machine

Heaven brings change to soul and heart

Repairs oneís every flaw

Anointing oil on every part

Makes Heavenís journey sure

When self in each has come to die

When lives to Christ we give

We trust in God instead of ďIĒ

And through true faith we live

Allow Godís love to speak to you

Heed not your brotherís sin

Forgive your neighbours all they do

In Christ youíll always win.....

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.
