God's Promises - Christian Poem


Each perfect promise
      Guarantee by God
Is live truth, sword-sharp to slice through doubt and hypocrisy
Leaving fillet of fresh faith
Nourishment of saints

For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
--Hebrews 4:12 NASB

All your poems are very, very good, but this one, dear brother, is excellent! It goes beyond the words themselves to the spirit, and in a way like the poems of the early church fathers. Axios! kai bravo, adelphos mou!

Thank you, my brother, for the encouragement. I often don't know how to evaluate the poems I write. I'd feared that this one didn't speak well enough. I thank our Lord that it spoke deeply to you.
