What the Bible says about Jesus

The True Light "In him, (the Lord Jesus) was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world,…the world didn’t recognize him." John 1:4,9.
The Good Seed and the Weeds The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seeds in his field. But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat and went away. Matthew 13:24,25.

Anatomy of a Hope

 Written and Posted by Jean-Louis. 

Waiting as a passerby
His eyes lifted up
Toward the silent sky
On a desert sidewalk
His heart beating with hope

His index finger in the air
Moist in the morning dew
Attempting to caress
A soft breeze message clue

Querying the clouds
Bearing news
Could it be a happy harbinger
Or a heart well-wisher?

Time trickles with sighs
Putting on backwards
His mantle of memories
Void of senseless appeals
As a master teaser
Shaper of destinies

Ah, can faith harness
This fleeting happiness
This ultramarine dream
Love in its glory
Reflection of reality
This smoldering flame
Of their unsteady hearts

Outside on the threshold
The hand opens steady and bold
Gathering the delicious ripe fruit
Ineffable recompense
Of an unbreakable faith

The sidewalk fills up
With passing witnesses
cheering with one heart
And not forgetting the part
of lifting their index fingers
in gratitude to the One
who knew it from the start
