When we give ourselves to Christ,

It means personal sacrifice…

He gave His all–

On us falls

The same to be wholly Christ’s.

Anything that binds,

We have to leave behind us…

Judgments, beliefs

All that deceives,

Exchanged for Christ’s own mind thus!

Hearing the Spirit takes,

Clearing out all the brakes…

Pulling pond weeds–

Our unholy deeds–

In exchange for manna cakes!

No condemnation for those

Who Christ’s righteousness chose…

Cleaning our closets

With Godly deposits,

Words from the Bible God chose!

Liar, murderer or gay,

God didn’t make you that way…

The forces of man

Certainly can

Brainwash you to think that way!

All in Christ suffer pains,

I had to give up my trains…

Relinquish strife

Of finding a wife,

In even this, God reigns.

Next my greatest fear,

Control of my career…

Totally depending

On God for sending

Me where He wanted Him declared.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
