This Preparation Place...

The lesson I am preparing for the Sunday School class is about the parable of The Unjust Steward
As I flipped through the Gardening Book I bought yesterday the words below leaped from a page…both of these examples point to what this life is all about...preparing for the next!

This place of grace
Where human race
Is prone to lose sight of the Whole
Is like a leap
Before death’s sleep
Unveils life’s solemn, sacred goal

This skin and bone
That soul alone
Will supersede, is but a shell
That holds the crux
Where all of us
Must choose the place for Soul to dwell

Time's vapor, fringed
With choice is hinged
To Something thought cannot descry
Of timeless deep
Beyond this leap
To by and by and by and by

© Janet Martin

We are not our own
But bought with a price
Only Jesus’ blood atones
He, sin’s sacrifice

We are not our own
But servants of HE
Who has made a way for man
To live eternally

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son,
That whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
John 3:16
