The Presence of God

It is not the law,
and not the book;
Nor the knowledge
of what is right;
What works obedience,
but the personality,
and influence of God:
His living fellowship.

Even so

It is not certain knowledge
Of what our God
Has promised us;
but the burning presence
of the Promiser Himself
that awakens faith
and trust in prayer:
His loving fellowship.

  1. Thanks for this powerful expression of the believers’ ultimate yearning for communion with God, the desire to enter into and remain and be sustained by “His burning presence,” like an “eternal flame” that generates “His living fellowship”, “His loving fellowship.” Great poem!

    Thanks again for the likes.
