WORTHY QUOTE | Una-Melina: We Are God’s Poetry

Poetry

“Because of His great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy,  made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.  And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus,  in order that in the coming ages He might show the incomparable riches of His grace, expressed in His kindness to us in Christ Jesus.  For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—  not by works, so that no one can boast.  For we are God’s POETRY, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:4-10

Jesus has been described as love incarnate, and I believe it. In the Bible, 1 John 4:16 puts it this way:

“And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.”

God is love and I am the poetry of His love.

God is love incarnate, and that makes me incarnated poetry.

I am a living love poem.

When I live loved I become truly alive; the poetry of His love comes alive in me and I am living, breathing, walking, talking God-poetry in the world.

And that sounds a lot like the kingdom of God, and maybe just a little like heaven on earth to me.
