Advent Word of the Day: Message

 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ. . .” Ephesians 4: 11-13

The Bible has a message for us

hidden in the stories

God has a message for us

hidden in our inner voice

Jesus has a message for us

hidden in His parables

God, whose name is will become

leaves us with confusion

if God is truly an action,

perhaps His message is also

I believe

praying is what God wants of me

helping others is what God wants

giving of myself

offering kindness and a smile

instead of bypassing with a scowl

saying hello, and God bless you

and thank you

and have a nice day.

God wants me to be an action

an action that considers others to be

a part of me

as God is

as Jesus is.

as the Bible is
