True Love

“True Love” an original poem by Pastor Sean Brizendine, composed 10:40am to 10:47am Central Time on Wednesday, August 31, 2022

True love heals and reveals a restored, new heart
Taking fear, shame and guilt out from the start
When we love as Christ loved us
His mission is fully accomplished

New impulses, desires and motives
Fresh from the new heart will spring
True forgiveness offers us each a part
In the symphony of unselfish love

When grace takes the helm of the will
We gladly learn to yield and be still
Casting down all our cares we see
That Christ already took our burdens to Calvary

Sin is the root cause of adversity
But in selfless love Christ bore our calamity
In death He won the victory
For “it is finished” we can sing

Rising after His Sabbath rest
Jesus came from the tomb forever blessed
Offering us His death to self and resurrection to new life
We can abide in the only One who has power to make us thrive

Ascended to heaven’s sanctuary
Christ is our High Priest, soon coming King
The song of Moses and the Lamb we now sing
For over all the allurements to sin we have victory

With the seal of God upon the life
We truly rejoice to be the Lamb’s wife
Ascending soon to our heavenly home
We will finally belong—and fully know as we are known
"When we live by faith on the Son of God, the fruits of the Spirit will be seen in our lives; not one will be missing." {The Desire of Ages, 676.4}

Amen!!  This is true love! "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."
Jesus receives His reward when we reflect His character, the fruits of the Spirit......We deny Jesus His reward when we do not.
