A New Poem! (OK, it was actually sent in over three years ago)

Yes, I know I’m behind. Way behind. Grossly behind. I just scrolled to the end of my unanswered emails (for truthsaves) and the last one contained this poem, from 08/11/2014. I like the poem so I’m posting it now. It reminds us of the significance of communion.

Be sure to check out the author’s website here – Faith Unlocked. You can also follow the author on Twitter (if you’re interested in that sort of thing) here.

To Be Emmanuel – A Poem By Mark

Do you know anyone who lives in captivity to fear? I do. Do you know someone who needs to hear the good news of Jesus Christ? I do. Do you know anyone who needs to be reminded that God is with us, all the time? I do!

Check out Mark’s latest poem — it’s a great reminder that God came to us, died for us, rose again and is with us forever — and we need to share the good news!

To Be Emmanuel

A Christmas Poem From Mark

I gotta say, I really appreciate what God has given me. Pastor Paul gave me a task a few days ago — to write down what God has done in my life. Once I started working on the list, I realized I could write forever so I tried to synthesize the many blessings into larger, more overarching ones. One of those overarching blessings in my life is my friends.

The friends God has given me have saved my life, coached me, directed me, prayed for me, encouraged me, supported me financially, taught me . . . I could go on but you get the idea. One such friend is Mark. You know, the guy who wrote so many poems for this site. I met him this morning for coffee and he really encouraged me. He reminded me that Christ is our end goal. He reminded me to keep my eyes on Him. Forget the world. Forget worrying. Forget theological debates. Focus on the prize — Jesus Christ.

For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
1 Corinthians 2:2 NKJV

Anyway, Mark also sent me this poem recently . . . read it and be blessed!
