ROBED IN CHRIST’S RIGHTEOUSNESS!

All our “worthiness ” filthy rags,

Used sanitary pads, say Bible wags…*

Jeshua–Messiah

(Jesus Christ) is higher,

He escaped those Roman toe tags!

Father God cannot look upon sin,

But with the Holy Spirit within..

With Christ’s righteousness

Our faith is dressed,

So the Father sees only Him.

This essence of Christian theology,

We proclaim with no apology…

The Three are but One–

Father Spirit and Son–

One God in three personalities.

Our righteousness–filthy rags*–

Smelly and dirty–one gags…

But Christ fulfilled

The law by God’s will,

Our righteous deeds Death tags!

Come to the Father through the Son,

As the Spirit fills you in the One…

Put on Christ

By faith in His sacrifice,

And see your new life begun!

–Jonathan Caswell

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?.
