teach me to witness


teach me to witness
to share my faith
in my words, my actions
with every breath

teach me to witness
to the good news of Christ
our Savior, Messiah
who came to heal the earth

teach me to witness
to be Christ’s disciple
to obey the Spirit
to fulfill my purpose

teach me to witness
to bear my cross
to accept my calling
my path in this life

little children - 2


a term of endearment
to our modern ears
little children
children of God
a term of value
the currency of that time
God loves us as children
the least, the last,
the lowest class, nothings
in that time and place
God shows his love
in calling us little children
changing the world
in the words God chose
in valuing the least, the last
the lowest class, nothings
all of us as little children
deserving of love

=======================

little children -2

on the status of children in the Roman Empire
in the time the 1st Epistle of John was written
and the use of the term “little children”
by the writer, to describe followers of Christ.

in how we live


the testament of our faith
the proof of our discipleship
in how we live
in our journey, our actions
in how we treat our neighbor
in the path that we choose to walk
do we honor the good news, the gospel
the commands of our Lord, Jesus Christ
