The Bible Invites Life

This poem was inspired by a sermon at First Methodist Church of Waco.

The Bible invites life;
Life in relationship with a Risen Savior;
The Savior that overcame death;
This Risen Savior changes our behavior.

The Bible invites life;
Life made courageous by the facts;
The facts from others who saw Him after death on the Cross;
These facts withstand attacks.

The Bible invites life;
Life empowered by the indwelling Spirit;
The Spirit that gives power to step ahead;
This Spirit has no limit.

The Bible invites life;
Life defined by love;
The love for God and our neighbors;
This love is from above.

The Bible invites life;
Life with a definite reason;
The reason is to share about Jesus;
The time is now in season.
