Chosen Generation (re-vamped re-post)

We are not just ‘playing house’ here
As we toil and plant earth’s sod
We are treading mercy-moments
On a stairway up to God

We are not just biding time here
Twixt the rise and set of sun
We will give account to God, dear
For each deed that we done

We are not soul-less flesh shadows
Skimming time’s fugitive glance
Nor are we a fluke of nature
Victimized by circumstance

We are precious blood-bought creatures
Bearing an eternal soul
Jesus gave Himself, an offering
To make broken sinners whole

We are born with holy purpose
Not earth's meaningless off-spring
Like a field of dandelions
We are children of a King

...created in His like-image
Knit together by the touch
Of a kind,heavenly Father
Who loves us so very much

As Easter week-end approaches are you not over-come with awe at such a love as Jesus has for us?

 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. Gen. 1:27
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 1 Peter 2:9

For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. John 3:16-17
