For Those Who Believe In Jesus

For those who believe in Jesus.

There are a few things which we must come to grips with in this world.

Jesus is real, Jesus is alive.

There are a lot of people in this world

and yes, even “ministers of the gospel” who do not truly believe it.

But they will not tell you that

because people lie.

You can know that He lives

You can know that this is true.

You can meet Him and you can hear Him,

if you seek Him.

How do we know this? He said, “Seek and Ye shall find”.

The problem with the world is, they are not seeking.

 

There are a few things which we must realize about this world.

There are people who want to own everything in the world.

There are people who want to have all of the power in this world.

There are a few people who very nearly do own everything in this world.

There are a few people who very nearly have all the power of this world.

If there were no God, we the ones without worldly power would be up the creek without a paddle.

Fortunately this is not the case, for our elder Brother and God, Jesus, has all of the real power.

This world is like a dust mote in His hands

and it’s power is like a tiny watch battery compared to the mighty power of the universe of God.

He who made all of the worlds and suns of the universe.

Can unmake this one and not even break a sweat.

He could poof us back into the dust cloud our world was made from,

But He does not do so for our sakes.

There are people among us who know Jesus

There are still people, even among the very wicked who can come to know Him.

There are people whom we are going to meet and lead into a relationship with Him.

Some of them will not seem to be very nice people.

And some of those same people will become closer than family to us.

I am not talking about taking someone to “church”,

I am not talking about taking them to a Christian concert,

I am talking about a face to face encounter with Him.

And their journey will start with your face and end up with His.

 

The time for wicked, worldly ones is limited.

This world will soon pass away.

Our lives in this world will end

but Jesus will not leave us.

So why is it we don’t trust Him, fully,

with everything?

 

So this is the deal, we all need to grow and mature in Jesus,

Don’t ask your pastor about this, don’t call up your favorite TV preacher either,

Go to Jesus. Yes, straight to Him.

It doesn’t take a degree in Theology, to talk to Him.

It doesn’t take a high falutin’ title either.

Just seek Him in your own humble way.

And listen.

He spoke to Abraham, and Moses, and David, and the Prophets,

And He will talk to you too.

He is the only one who really knows what is going on anyway!

    Nathan, I can’t help but love you as a beautiful brother in the Lord, though I have yet to meet you. What a wonderful stream of consciousness, poetic post. Thank you for sharing this.

  2. Nathan Says:

    Hi Cindy,
    Thank you oh so much! This kind of free verse is kind of my thing. It’s funny I never cared that much for “beatnik poetry” when it was popular, I always preferred the more formal stuff.
    Haha, Isn’t wonderful how we grow and change? Thank God!

    Bless you and yours
    Nathan

    Amen and Amen. Great post. Yes go to Him directly – for this is one of the reasons for Jesus coming to us as He did. When we go to God directly – we honor Jesus’ life and what He gave us – Himself.

      Yes Rachel and thank you,
      It is so difficult for me to understand now how anyone could read the gospels and think that Jesus is still way far away. It seems to me that one of the purposes of the incarnation is to show us how close He is to us and the Holy Spirit seals the deal. It is so simple, we cannot escape Him, so we really ought to get to know Him!
