Love! Need I Say More?

Ransom can be a scary word.

Have you ever thought of what the meaning of ransom is?  We see it happening in the movies and it’s not a fun scenario. I bet many of us don’t see the word “ransom” and think of Jesus. When someone has been ransomed, they’ve been liberated through another paying the price of the ransom request. Satan would have preferred that Jesus didn’t go to the cross. He would have preferred we all stayed lost. That we all stayed trapped, ensnared, restricted, and without hope. But that is not how redemption’s story goes.

Love! Need I Say More?

Father, I know
You will immeasurably bless
Those who read
This poet’s address.

For I was once
A dirty and broken soul.
The life I lived
Held thoughts untold.

Hard to guess,
Or even for others to see
The internal workings
Of my heart, unhealthy.

You, Lord, I praise!
You didn’t cast me a stone.
This heart You healed,
And made Yourself known.

There is nothing, Lord,
That goes by You unseen.
Sin tries to use hiding,
And secrets, as its means.

Let shushing and hushing
Be a thing of the past.
No one will You lose
Who to Your promises holds fast.

Evildoers, you are not
Pulling one over on Him!
Mend your ways, call on Him,
And repent of your sin!

His book tells you in advance
How the story will unfold.
Give it up, try your hand at love,
Please, give it a go!

We give Jesus our heart because He ransomed us.

God will use any and every
Harm done toward good.
This battle against innocence
Is another day in the ‘hood!

Problem is, some are confused
At the battle location.
Let me clear up this ‘hood,
Yup, it’s this earthly nation.

Lo and behold,
There is coming a day,
When evil will finally
Be put in its place.

So, I for one
Will look toward hope, live!
Nothing on earth
That Jesus can’t cope with.

You know what they say.
Yup, no time like today
To grasp at the rope
Being sent to you this day.

Don’t be a prisoner,
This life, it is too short!
Jesus paid our ransom.
Need I say more?

Scripture reference:
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Do not lay with folly. The kingdom of God is righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. You cannot find peace without redemption. God is Love, but He is also Holy. Salvation is found only through the heart of the Savior. Isn’t it time you gave Him yours? He is oh so kind, oh so loving. Go to Him child. Trust in Him. He will never leave you nor forsake you as it is written.

Looking for more about love and redemption? Have you ever run from love and redemption? Jesus is ALL encompassing

Have you not heard that God will use every “bad” toward good? Romans 8:28 “And we know that ALL things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose.” So don’t forget to connect the dots. From lost… to… elect is the cause/effect. It’s Christmas year-round at the cross.
