LOVE ONE ANOTHER

*1Jn. 4:8 "He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love."

**1Jn. 4:16 "And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him."

***1Cor. 14:25 "And thus are the secrets of his heart made manifest; and so falling down on his face he will worship God, and report that God is in you of a truth."

************

These words sound, Oh so simple,
And so easy to do;
LOVE ONE ANOTHER -
Not fained…but true.

Try and try…much as I can,
To love is not so easy;
LOVE ONE ANOTHER -
At best…is often risky.

Exposed and vulnerable, I don't want to be,
Take the chance to be rejected;
LOVE ONE ANOTHER -
Out on a limb…projected.

What are my options…any other way?
Surely there must be;
LOVE ONE ANOTHER -
Keeps coming back to me.

To hate is poison…it poisons me,
Cold and indifferent…well, maybe;
LOVE ONE ANOTHER -
Nothing solid here…everything's quite shakey.

What a way to live…if that is what it's called,
Still, I think there must be more;
LOVE ONE ANOTHER -
Haven't I heard that before?

Try and try, as best I can,
Still, I cannot do it;
LOVE ONE ANOTHER -
Okay…okay…still, there is a limit.

In my own strength, it can't be done,
I try and still I fail;
LOVE ONE ANOTHER -
This flesh being…Oh so frail.

Now, the world will see Him,
His power and His might;
LOVE ONE ANOTHER -
In me, they never shall delight.

God is Love*, His Word declares,
Alright…with that I can agree;
LOVE ONE ANOTHER -
He says, "I AM"…now you, just "Be".

The only way to truly Love,
Unselfish in all ways;
LOVE ONE ANOTHER -
Is agree with what He says.

Let He who is Love…manifest,
Not me…but Him be seen;
LOVE ONE ANOTHER -
Let Him have full-course…intervene.

He who Loves is of God,**
That's how we can tell;
LOVE ONE ANOTHER -
A Christian…God indwells.***
