He Finds Us and Binds Us

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

The Word of God is reaching out to find us.
The love of Christ is wrapping round, to bind us
And call us to a closer, deeper walk
Where what we live out matches how we talk.
 
For when we truly live what we believe,
Our simple minds cannot even conceive
Of what the power of Christ in us can do
When His own Spirit lives in me and you.
 
So let us, then, be searchers of the Word
Who live out what we’ve read and what we’ve heard.
So we can be equipped to live a life
That touches others with the love of Christ.
 
 
“But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom,
and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—
they will be blessed in what they do.”
James 1:25 NIV
