HE BOUGHT YOU

God created you in love!

But does not force the call!

Wants you to lift your eyes and say,

I love you most of all!

.

.

Hate, in Luke 14:26,

Is a comparative term!

‘Other world love,’ just not the same,

Comparatively more firm!

.

.

God, who said, “Love you enemies,”

Could never mean despise.

Relative to anyone else,

So compare it in size!

.

.

Size, the length, breadth of your love,

Differentiate, adore.

God, who gave His life in love,

Loves you and yours much more!

.

.

Formed you compassionately

As His very own!

His very own image, too,

Am I ever alone?

.

.

Care, how could you not consider

Daily gives you thought!

When all else forget reminds,

It is your soul I bought!

.

.

Look to the One who sacrificed,

To take you home above!

How do you see that cross with spikes?

Oh, yes, I call it love!

.

.

And what is your call, can it be

Never gave it a thought?

Do not you know, He died for you?

It was you He bought!

.

.

Paul said, “I’m determined to know nothing among you

save Christ and Him crucified!”

.
