1 John 1:7 “But if we walk in the light, as HE is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of JESUS HIS SON cleanses us from all sin!”
HIS Cleansing Inscriptions!
These hands are stained past callused skin
till “core-deep bone” then blackened be.
Beyond the grasp of mortal man…
so could CHRIST’s cleansing crimson seem.
But I have greatest Truth to share
for thus this soul — of Self — perceived….
when once was sensed such darkened fears
which joined the void…these eyes had seen.
But my GOD, this heart’s sole light source
intervened before Times’ passage…
where HE chose and drew me close through CHRIST
…before me even asking!
Till that hour this broken vessel
did — at last — abandon “selfish”….
to the outer realms as outcast;
to that space described as hellish!
Then with my SAVIOUR’s cleansing came
HIS healing hand — inscribing;
pouring through this pen HIS blessings
and upon your spirit — writing!
As HIS pen moved, compelled and driven by the SPIRIT of the Living GOD,
Devotional: 1 Peter 3:18 “For indeed CHRIST died for sins once for all, the Just and Righteous for the unjust and unrighteous [the Innocent for the guilty] so that HE might bring us to GOD, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the SPIRIT…”
It’s the crossroads we all come to at some point. In our youth, in our older years…whenever. It’s that intersection where we feel we’ve messed up so far…that GOD will not forgive us.
At least that’s the lie of the devil who incessantly rails against our thoughts. The evil one tells us that our hands are so stained and our steps are so fallen that we’ve done it. “GOD can’t love you now!” so satan screams mere millimeters from our listening hearts.
But the “Good News!” is such because GOD’s love has no limit, no measure, no end! As we are drawn to HIM and the work HE planned in eternity past for us to do on earth, we will surely experience HIS compassions the more we follow HIS footprints closely!
So our lives are each like a sovereign stencil! We are held in HIS nail-scarred hands and used to script blessings into the lives of others!
Therefore follow the words of the LORD to the Israelites. BE YE SEPARATE! The “called out” ones!
Above all else, CONTINUE standing within HIS steps AND being separate from the world! We preach TO the world but we are not to REFLECT the world but stand as GOD’s mirrors to show them the error of their ways.
So, as HIS purposed pens, go on a spiritual writing spree! Speak life, and write it as well, onto the lives of all who HE brings across your path!
Amen and amen!
