Love, Can we just steal away?
Run from all these complications, hindrances and over thinking? When our hearts collide like shooting stars, fire reigns down igniting passion within our hearts…but romance is lost in this world of ours for it’s too much with us like obtrusive scars. So love is found in dimly lit bars, where lovers steal and strike in night only to awake to a broken vase a wretched sight, a strangers face. A monster dwells within this place and his lies like poison defeat our race. Our DNA encodes our fate as it weaves within us selfish hate, all love is lost and tainted black, like the darkest night where lovers take.
Love, Can we Just steal away?
To a place where romance lives? Where you’re not afraid to take my hand, for the lies of love are ground to sand and no one has taken you, shaken you or made command to send you to sadness…to be lonely again. My love, that wasn’t love that took your trust from you, it was the thief that stole this earth to rule and to remove the one true love that ever loved you and that love is with us here so take my hand and I’ll lead you to a brighter land…
To a land where love aboundeth much, so do not fear my gentle touch, for I am yours child and you are mine and though, till now, your love was blind, I’ll teach you of love, the most blessed kind. Love that gives, love that suffers, love that breaks and love that dies…but only to rise…yes only to rise…to a love that grows, to a love unreal, to a love that saves, to a love that steals…away.
Away to a land not far…but here, within us now, a love that knows NO FEAR, except the fear of God above, a reverent heart for the lion and the dove…YES…true love
Do not lose this love.
Here I stand, not to reform you, but inform you. Not to condemn but to lead you to Him. He who died on the cross, Jesus Christ, to save the lost, was broken maimed and put to shame. Died, just to rise, to grow, to give life to all, to lift up a world, broken by the fall…that said. WE need to stand together, one for all.
How can we persecute in the name of the one who was maimed and put to shame? No, I don’t mean sinners, for we understand Gods grace, it rests and it saves the lost hearts of the broken and for that…we give Him praise….Praise and persecution
If to persecute is to divide, stand out against a people, then to persecute each other, the church…is a new kind of evil.
When we say the church just doesn’t get it, that Christ will not suffice to bring light to the self righteous, we take a knife to the body of Christ and begin to slice losing sight of his grace and the HOPE of his might.
We are the salt of the earth, but a plague to God’s Church.
With our orthodoxy, theologies and quarreling spirits, we lay shame to his name and at GODS BODY we rip…we tear and we break away, we say, Jesus Christ wouldn’t live this way! But Jesus Christ wouldn’t persecute the persecutors.
He was perfect, and with righteous, angry love he set them straight, but our Lord and Love he would not aim to break…or to run away…
If you think the devil has infiltrated, slain, maimed and obliterated the church in which we live then what hope do you have in God’s saving love?
Trust Him, seek to unite the lost within sin, pray for those who get under your skin, but to point fingers? NO, that is not what we’re called to do, for though its hard to hear, Christ came to save the self righteous too, and he loves them…just like me and you.
Let he who is without sin cast the first stone. We all have sin, so let’s make the church our home. Clean up, help each other and endure with patient hearts, trusting that God will do His part, lets mend the wounds on Christ’s Body, lets make a fresh start. And stand together in patient love after Christ own heart. For you are a spirit and shall one day depart, so set your mind on that and live with agape at heart.
