Eloi, Eloi

“Eloi, Eloi,
lama sabachthani” –
He felt forsaken,
The pain of separation
From His Father,
And ours;
Ended by His defeat
Of death and sin
Through His resurrection,
His returning ascension,
Creating the pathway
For our reconciliation
And salvation
Through faith in Him.

Reconciliation

The solution to the human condition, to the problems of our world is the same as it has been since the dawn of time: reconciliation. Reconciliation into a relationship with our creator, our master, our loving Father God. He chose us, and has always sought to restore the relationship mankind broke in the beginning.

The gracious means to reconciling the relationship is the greatest gift God in His mercy has given us – faith in our Saviour Jesus Christ.

‘For he himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, by setting aside in his flesh the law with its commands and regulations. His purpose was to create in himself one new humanity out of the two, thus making peace, and in one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility. He came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near. For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit.’
– Ephesians 2:14-16

Reblog: March On

A subject very close to my heart – the unity of the family of believers as the Body of Christ – put into beautiful words. Love it!

Words for Many

Together we are, united as one.

Brothers and sisters, together at last.

We’ll march till it’s over, till He says over.

We’ll shout and we’ll praise, as the trumpets all blast,

We’ll let it be known. This is our promise, as it once 

Has been told, to us the children,

To us the forgiven. We are the chosen, the liberated, 

And unworthy. He gave himself for us, from His love

We are new. Now we must march, raise our swords,

Give thanks to The One, the Great I Am. 

Be a doer, be apart of the movement,  because 

When He opens the gate, and calls us all home, 

We’ll sit down to dinner, and talk about life.

So when our time comes, remember this bit;

Always give thanks, for the blessings He gave, 

But until that time comes we match to the promise.
