Our God is Love

A Poem By Joy J. // 7/15/2018

God is holy, but yet God loves
He yearns for you to see that love.
God is mercy, and He’s just
But still patient with all of us.

He doesn’t condemn, He doesn’t say:
“You’re guilty, you don’t follow my way”
He gives us time to accept His gift,
Till our loud praise, to His Son lifts.

Again I say, our God is love
He showed it when He gave His Son
Our LORD tells us, “You are adored,
And I’ll come in, just open the door”

So let’s not turn, instead embrace
The fullness of His wondrous grace!
Let’s give our hearts to God who'll stay
Close by our side, day after day.

Within His arms, there is no fear
His love for you is always near.
O the freedom we have in Christ
Because He lives, we have joyous life!

Very sweet poem. :) the last verse makes my heart sing. And what a comfort it is to know that God’s love is not dependent on us opening up the door to our hearts all on our own. :)

God uses the milestones as stepping stones to bring us closer to Him. We may not see it in the moment, but we can always look back and see the memorials of His love in the crumbles of our stumbling blocks.

I liked the message of your poem. It really is true:

He doesn’t condemn, He doesn’t say:
“You’re guilty, you don’t follow my way”

“The gospel alone is the power of God unto salvation.
Therefore, suffer, yes. Be misunderstood, yes. Be shamed, yes. But do not be ashamed. For the joy set before you, take up your cross, follow Jesus, be shamed and despise the shame!" -- John Piper

Thanks!

Thanks guys!

C.H. Spurgeon - "God’s mercy is so great that you may sooner drain the sea of its water, or deprive the sun of its light, or make space too narrow, than diminish the great mercy of God. "
