Eternal Child

Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us
that we should be called children of God!
Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.
Beloved, now we are children of God;
and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be
but we know that when He is revealed,
we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.
And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies Himself, just as He is pure.
1 John 3:1-3

Eternal Child

Remain in Him
Loving the truth
Living in the truth
Loving those who love and live in the truth

Remember who you are
Reborn in Christ
Adopted by Him
A child with the eternal inheritance of Heaven

Motivated by God
Abounding in love
Glorified in His name
Standing in the promise of the prize set before you

Among the Walking Dead

When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature.
God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins,
having canceled the written code, with its regulations,
that was against us and that stood opposed to us;
He took it away, nailing it to the cross. –Colossians 2:13-14

Among the Walking Dead

We live among the walking dead
Blinded eyes to life and love
Hardened hearts for the things above
They are the living dead

Seeking the destruction of life
Starving souls devouring hope
Darkened minds on a slippery slope
A meager existence where sinfulness is rife

Amongst the dead the living roam
Open eyes to truth and light
Softened hearts abounding with life
They are waiting for their final home

Seeking love and righteousness
Souls overflowing with joy and peace
Illuminated minds fully released
A rich journey filled with God’s holiness

Reach out to the walking dead
Bring them home to something more
Show them the glory that is in store
Give them the gift of eternal life instead
