Colossians 2:2-3 is the ultimate goal.


Why Christ?

Why should we follow Christ our Lord?

Why should we be so encouraged?

Why is Jesus so inspiring and above board?

Why Christ?

-        To have a new life of giving and forgiving.

-        To make a brand new start.

-        To achieve soul knowledge and have a change of heart.

Perhaps there is no earthy reason to understand why.

-        Perhaps to achieve peace and love that money cannot buy.

-        Perhaps to have hope that reaches far beyond the stars in the sky.

 So let us go forth to discover the unconditional love from Christ we cannot see.

For that is reason enough to follow Him.

But know that this will last a lifetime in eternity.

Eternity with Christ – forever free!

Unity, love and wisdom - you, Jesus and me!

REFERENCE: Colossians 2:2-3  My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, 3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

This is the second day I've come to read this annointed writing. Just noticed you've used Col. 2:2-3, verses I have been inspired by this month. There are indeed treasures in this poem, and it arouses such yearning in me for others to "know" and live forever with Christ. Stay close, John...you know He is living through you, drawing the needy in spirit.
Sincerely,
Connie

The mysteries of God and Christ are as eternal as the love we have for him. Without him we would not exist, God bless...

Be always safe,

Why Christ? Because He is Love made Perfect on the Cross of Calvary, available "to all who receive Him, to those who believe in His Name..." A blessing to read and a very timely piece.
