Crime

 

She told him to go but he demanded to stay

Hardly knew him yet he put hands on her

At first she was eager to get to meet him

Another sunny day in the mid town park

Trees lined the trail they twice had walked

Today was a different sobering event

as he pushed her into concealing brush

laid out on top of her hard and heavy

until the hatpin left her hat

blunged it straight through his back

into his heart and now a crime

Crime

Bread and Wine

Melchizedek brought bread and wine

Canaanite King of Righteousness

way to meet with God

in the Valley of Shaveh

after Abraham’s victory

and Abraham praised God

 

David wrote a psalm after faining madness

Taste and see that the LORD is good!   How happy is the man who takes refuge in Him!             Psalm 34:8. HCSB

Eat Him

He is tasty and good

knowing this you will be happy

because you will be in God

 

Jesus said

Whoever eats my body and drinks my blood abides in me and I in him.   (John       6:56.  (Aramaic Bible in Plain English)

many walked away

later at the Passover while they were eating

Jesus took bread and broke it, gave it to the disciples, and said,”Take and eat it.  This is my body.”           Matthew 26:26. HCSB

then He took the wine

“For this is My blood that establishes the covenant; it is shed for many for the forgiveness of sins.”         Matthew 26:28.  HCSB

bread and wine

communion with God

The Size of Faith

And He said unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith?     Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.          Matthew 8:26 ERV

What size is faith?

Is it small like the disciples

who cried out in the storm drenched boat

thinking they would die,

“LORD are you trying to kill us?

Save us from this storm.”

Or is it medium size like Jonah

who pleaded with men

“Throw me overboard!” to calm the sea

Jonah who had to be taken under

drowned at the foot of Mt Carmel

washed up on the shore to save Ninevah

Or is it large like Jesus

who became man

spoke of a kingdom that was other of this world

obedient to the end

cried out in a loud voice

“Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.”
