First Thessalonians Five Poem

As children of our Father God

Sons and daughters of the light

We belong to our heavenly King

And turn away the dark of night


We wear the breastplate of righteousness

Putting it on with faith and love

The helmet of salvation’s hope

Protects our heads above


The Lord Jesus died for us

As payment for our sin

He endured the wage, a gruesome death

Fought the battle and did win


No power on earth was strong enough

To keep Him in the grave

An angel of the Lord came down

And rolled the stone away


On the third day, He was raised to life

And seated at God’s right hand

His enemies made His footstool

He reigned over all the land


He gave His body and His blood

For our salvation to receive

When we confess Him as our Lord

And in our hearts believe


At all times, be full of joy

In everything, give thanks

This is God’s good and perfect will

For all our earthly days


Live in peace and harmony

With friend and foe the same

Hold on to good, avoid the bad

Bring honor to God’s name


Utter prayers without ceasing

Do not quench the Spirit’s fire

Let the God of peace Himself

Fulfill your heart’s desire


May your body, mind, and spirit

Be blameless in His eye

As the Holy Spirit cleanses you

And makes you sanctified


Daily read the Word of God

As the verses come alive

And remember this little ditty

From 1st Thessalonians 5.

God’s not dead–He is alive!

Jesus on cross

“Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen!” (Luke 24:5-6)Stone Rolled Away

It is the first day of the week. You have come to worship me. When you arrive at the place where they laid my body, you see the large stone at the entrance has been moved. You enter to see only the empty strips of linen that once covered my bruised and broken body, lying on the ground. I am not there. I have risen! Do not look for me among the dead. I am alive! You do not worship a god carved out of stone. I am alive, and I dwell in you. You need to look no farther than within your own heart. I have not gone anywhere. You are not alone, I am with you always. Worship me with your songs and praises. Lift my name high above the earth. I am alive—Hallelujah!  Happy Easter!
