Children call each other names;
if wrong, refuse to take the blame.
They make their choices out of fear
instead of knowing Love is near.
They do not know God’s saving grace
nor understand His full embrace.
When we love God with all our mind,
we grow as Spirit does remind
us of our Father’s forgiveness,
His mercy and His tenderness.
God’s great delight is when we see
His lavish love for you and me.
As we mature in Godly love
we keep our thoughts on things above.
There is no punishment in Christ;
He told us this. To be precise,
no condemnation then or now;
adoption – His eternal vow.
While here on earth our lives we pass
in houses that are made of glass.
Thus stones of retribution thrown
will only make our Father groan
as pebbles surely tossed right back
will make our fragile houses crack.
Instead, God furnishes a feast
where love and mercy are increased
inside a house of many rooms
where hearts and minds are fed and bloom.
Now, Father, Son and Spirit three
invite us to The Family.
Therefore, now no condemnation awaits those who are living in Jesus Christ. Who has the authority to condemn? Jesus Christ who died, but more importantly, conquered death when He was raised to sit at the right hand of God where He pleads on our behalf. (Romans 8:1,34)
There is plenty of room for you in my Father’s home. If that weren’t so, would I have told you that I’m on my way to get a room ready for you? (John 14:2)
And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. (Philippians 4:8)
