GOD CONTENDING

The “Heavens declare…” a limitless

Space, of course, unending!

God inhabits!  Oh, He is there alright!

And everywhere contending!

.

.

A thief on a cross, God there beside,

What more does this crook need?

“Remember me…” when You enter heaven.

He is remembered indeed!

.

.

“Today with Me in paradise,” declared,

Forgiven, converted, redeemed,

And there was not ever an altar call!

And that was enough, it seemed—

.

.

As a thief on a cross, God there beside,

What more do criminals need?

“Remember me!”  It is a painful cry!

He is remembered!  Indeed!

.

.

The right from wrong, He only determines,

Whatever the judgement pending.

Since the “Just shall live by faith in God,”

Many criminals contending.

.

.

I left the Marines in a borrowed car.

So long before you were born.

So this silly kid tried to reenlist, ha!

Rejected, of course, forlorn!

.

.

So I tried the Army, found my home,

Did expert with the rifle,

Sure, as I in the Marines,

Just had to add this trifle.

.

.

Figure this, no relation but another Cox,

Same outfit, news came in

Made expert also thought most unusual!

So what is in a name?

.

.

But no matter I am in God’s Army, now!

Forget all the expertise

To be His greatest, humble yourself!

Pray!  Down on your knees—

.

.

To the Christ, consistent, theophany,

Very person of God!

Can any presence ever be more real?

Than Jesus our Lord?

.
