Knowing You Jesus!

1Ti 6:6 But godliness with contentment is great gain.

Content

I thought of myself the chief of sinners
But it was pride that made me think
Far greater evil by men are done
Men far evil than I have ever been!

I thought I searched, I thought I thirst
But better men than I have lived
Better men who sought and did not find
Better men than I have ever been!

Mediocre at most
A failure even in failing
I just cannot explain
Nothing like I have ever heard or seen!


I thought Agape meant unconditional
Now I know it means more than that
Unfathomable, unimaginable, incomprehensible ...
Inexpressible .... you know what I mean!

To be called His child,
To be able to enter into His presence
To know that He Loves me,
Forgiven, washed by His blood of every sin clean!

O evil heart of mine
Is there anything more that you now seek?
Knowing that we can know Him
Cast our cares on Him, on Him lean!

Content in knowing that He reigns
Content in knowing that He loves
Content in knowing that He decides
Content in Him, even of things unseen.

2Pe 1:3-14 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

Yes, this αγαπη cannot hardly be known and understood by the mind, only by the hands and the heart of one who simply follows Jesus.

I salute you, brother, with an embrace. It is so good that you are writing in our eyes again.
