BAPTISM

 

 

Immersed into Life

The pure water that flows from beneath the Throne,

After the shadow life, a lost sheep spiritually dead

Washed clean, made new by Divine Hands;

The message from the wilderness of this world loud and clear

Words of the Living God for the barren desert earth-

New life offered the heart and soul,

Comfort for the body in transition proclaimed,

“Death to self, then rise again in Messiah”

Your spirit rebirth, washed clean in Sacred Blood;

“Repentance” the hardest choice ever-

Human nature finally overcome, from evil to good

Forever from wrong to right

From weak to strong, from darkness to Light

From falsehood to Truth,  from impure to pure

Things to now experience beyond the human realm,

A change for good that only God can bring!

In obedience John the Baptist showed the way

He helped make the rough road smooth, the crooked straight

Boldly, fearlessly pointed to the beginning path,

Then, God the Son came to do the work

And reveal the spiritual baptism of death into Life,

To finish only what He could do!

The sun continues to move in the galaxy

The Earth in our solar system,

Day becomes night

Night becomes another day

Majestic colors and patterns proclaim each in reflected beauty,

The warmth of light and the heart of a young woman yearns

The heart of a man longs

And the finger of God touches,

A fountain of forgiveness rises in the new born spirit.

Hope of a future celebrated in another

Proclaimed and confirmed in public display,

And this one too becomes a friend of God

A new child of the coming “new heaven and earth”

When the New Jerusalem settles down from high above

And God literally comes to live with us,

His eternal people.
