A Need To Comprehend

Poem By Bob Gotti

Christ has died for all my friend, but for many, Christ is not the end.
Many can’t even comprehend, what He’s done for them my friend.
We are saved from a hopeless fate, many don’t truly contemplate.
All are born with a sinful heart, separated from God from the start.
We were truly lost in our sin, with no desire at all for seeking Him.

In His Son we have come to trust, only because God first loved us.
We were dead in transgressions, separated from God by our sins,
When we followed the prince of the air, who leads many to despair.
Going down that wicked path, we were by nature, objects of wrath.
But as we were dead in that life, God made us alive in Jesus Christ.

For we who were once far away, have been saved in a Glorious way.
It was by God’s Grace we were saved, from a world totally depraved.
By God’s Mercy and His Love, we are now seated with Christ above.
Through His blood we have peace, and through God it will not cease.
We now have access to God above, provided for us by Christ’s Love.

We’ve been brought near by Christ, who was God’s atoning sacrifice,
As foreigners to God’s Covenant, without hope, then Christ was sent.
Excluded from the Nation Israel, and all the promises God shall fulfill.
No longer do men stand apart, as Jesus brought together every heart.
God has reconciled the eternal plan, through the cross for every man.

Friend, we have come to appreciate, that life is not just a simple fate.
Facing alone eternal separation, we stood in need of God’s Salvation.
Standing condemned forevermore, but in His Love God sent our Lord.
My friend, undeserved is this life, which we now have in Jesus Christ.
And now because Christ is our end; we will not be found condemned.

A Heavy Heart

There’s a heaviness upon my heart, at times it seems to not depart.
But Christ who lives within my heart, will never leave me nor depart.
I need to focus more upon The Lord, for by Him I am never ignored.
I need to seek His lasting peace, a peace I known will never cease.

Not Peace But A Sword

On the scene came Christ The Lord, not with peace but with a sword.
The sword was The Word of Truth, and to many it became a reproof.
To many hearts Truth would come, to acknowledge God’s Only Son.
But many just wouldn’t believe, and The Truth they would not receive.

A Cord Of Three Strands

I have one lovely woman in my life, but we have a marriage of three.
The life long bond of our marriage is my wife, Jesus Christ, and me.

This is not simply a well known cliché, a phrase, or a simple token,

A True Blessed Hope

Christ is indeed for us my friend, our true Blessed Hope for the end,
He is our Blessed Hope my friend, in that we will see a brighter end.
This Hope is something we can’t see, that we can know is sure to be.
And this hope is for all who come, to a living faith in God’s Only Son.

Someone You Can Trust

God is Faithful and God is Just, God is someone you can trust.
When in a trial simply be still, as God works out His Perfect Will.
He is God and from the start, He’s working to prepare your heart.
When you are tried, you will see, God is molding you for Eternity.

A Tree's Fruit

Good fruit or bad fruit, a tree can only bear one,
This parable was taught by God's one and only Son.

First mentioned by John as a warning for the Pharisees to heed,
