No treatise

Jesus didn’t come to earth
With a great treatise
Instead He took a little child
And humbly sat him on his knees

‘Unless you become
Like such as these-
My kingdom you won’t see!

Those born of my spirit
Are to be like the breeze
Uncomplicated
They simply- just believe

Oh ye of little faith-
Consider the lilies of the field
How they grow- all beautiful
And radiantly dressed

They did not toil or spin-
Yet Solomon in all his glory
Was never so beautifully arrayed
And in his wisdom
He could only cry-

‘This is what I have found-
Fear God – and keep His commandments-
For this is the whole duty of man’
Jesus says- seek first God’s kingdom,
and his righteousness; Then all these things
shall be added unto you.

Mathew 6:29 to 34

    How true Brenda, the 10 commandments are the law and he said they are not grievous to keep. Yet we break so many of them including the Sabbath which is Saturday not Sunday. I love the way you have pointed out the importance of theswe things.

    I thank you for your comment Elizabeth-The law is the shadow of the Righteousness of Christ- If we are in Christ and walk after and in HIS spirit His righteousness will live in us- regarding days - he said- Man wasn't made for the sabbath. Sabbath or rest was made to show man a rest.The new testament did not and doesn't differentiate on days- it is the rest of God- we cease from our own works . Each person is to be persuaded in his or her own mind. It is more important to have a change of heart- because he said out of this flow all the issues of life and to receive it as a child in simplicity and truth. Love&blessings, bren
