Love on Display

Jesus came because we needed a guide
To help us follow the Way and not slide.
Jesus came as a servant to identify with us.
He knows how hard life can be and thus
He knows what hard work is;
He knows what fear is.
Jesus came to help protect
When lost or when we feel wrecked.
Jesus came to love us sacrificially.
Jesus came to love us unconditionally.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.

    I enjoy writing inspirational poems and this one is inspired by a sermon at my church. This day with God, share a thought from one of the great sermons you attend in your community or on a podcast.
