The Cost of Christianity

 

The Christianity that costs you nothing will profit you nothing,

If it cant cost you sleep, it wont profit you rest,

If it cant cost you food , it wont profit you satisfaction,

If it cant cost you risk, it wont profit you safety,

If it cant cost you friends, it wont profit you relationships,

If it cant cost you money, it wont profit you wealth,

If it cant cost you sacrifice, it wont profit you consolation,

If it cant cost you seeds, it wont profit you harvest,

If it cant cost you death, it wont profit you life,

If it cant cost you the world, it wont profit you Christ.

The Christianity that cost you nothing profits you nothing.

True Christianity will cost you all, but will give you even more.

The way of the wind

.

It’s direction unknown, it’s source untraceable, it’s purpose undetectable,

It’s path traceless, it’s way trackless, it’s road trapless,

It’s strength limitless, it’s power boundless, it’s might faultless,

smooth as silk, blinding as light, flowing like oil.

All around but none can hold it, felt everywhere but none can point it,

When calm all is calm, when fiery all must move,

with no sense of arrangement, the rootless attest this.

In its fury a terror to all, save the eagle.

Giving the waves no sleep and the alight full thought,

Yet we dare not live without it, we dare not breathe without it.

Missing in space, the astronaut’s regret,

It’s way a mystery, it’s thought hidden, it’s effect un-ignorable,

like he born of the Spirit, like she conscious of Life,

Tis my way, tis my only way.

Perfect Me

  Perfect Me. I am so perfect, as a fact I have never and will never see anybody as perfect as me. When I make a mistake, I’m only human, when others make a mistake they are careless. When I fail a course; the lecturer failed me, when others fail a course they are dull. […]
