Nothing new here
THE BOOK OF 2ND JOHN CHAPTER 1 ONE THRU SIX
Click LOGO for full text of Spirit led podcast reflecting our life in Christ poetically translated from Scripture one line at a time.
1 The Presbyter to the chosen Lady and to her children whom I love in truth—and not only I but also all who know the truth— 2 because of the truth that dwells in us and will be with us forever. 3 Grace, mercy, and peace will be with us from God the Father and from Jesus Christ the Father’s Son in truth and love. 4 I rejoiced greatly to find some of your children walking in the truth just as we were commanded by the Father. 5 But now, Lady, I ask you, not as though I were writing a new commandment but the one we have had from the beginning: let us love one another. 6 For this is love, that we walk according to his commandments; this is the commandment, as you heard from the beginning, in which you should walk.
Life will pass you by if you don’t take the time to reach out to those you enjoyed growing in wisdom as a child with. Sometimes we don’t see them for years but when you do you recognize the smile and the twinkle in their eye from the back of a tent out in the middle of a pasture or the beauty of jumping off a roof into a pool garnering this splendor of life unrecognized yet reflected on time and time again. There’re times when you thought to be a child meant to do silly things where truth was ignored while the tenacity of this commandment unknown brood in each and everyone of us recognizing now God was there in the midst of the mischief we did in the name of fun.
This past weekend I had an opportunity to revisit some old friends where our home in Gainesville Florida lies and we spent every early childhood school year there amidst a university filled with progressive ideals and openly sexual environments. We sought to mingle in the university recognizing some of our hometown greats like Tom Petty early on in his career aspiring to the unknown calling out for privileges sown. We didn’t understand what our life’s walk meant mingling in excessiveness experiencing loss of everything known except this love that dwells from a childhood and the parents who call us their own.
What I began to understand more than anything else is why God directs us to share our love of hope, faith and charity steering clear of worldly debates focusing on the Commandments of treating one as you would treat yourself no matter how their beliefs are educated or if their uninformed choices leaves them seemingly stranded we know True friendship ties the hearts of a child’s growth forever. So today let us look upon our past as the ability to grow in hope and faith of life’s charity. Amen.
Join us in our daily prayer of forgiveness. I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Prayer intentions. Silence for the prayers of others. Church Militant Prayers for Holy Mother Church. In Jesus Precious Blood in His Name we pray. Amen.
I am a poet obedient to Christ,
