Food - Poem by Michael P. Johnson

When Jesus Christ our hearts we give
When raised up from the dead -Lk.8: 54
When faith has brought the Truth to live
Our need is first The Bread –Lk.8: 55

The Bread of life God’s Living Word –Dt.8: 3
Heaven through grace imparts
Quickening those by faith have heard –Jn.14: 6
And taken to their hearts –Jas.1: 22

A fool would think the battle’s won –Pr.6: 9
God’s met our every need –Pr.6: 10
It’s true we’ve now The Father’s Son
Yet still we need to feed –Jn.6: 54

Like every child, it’s milk at first –1Pe.2: 2
Supplied by Jesus’ queen –Heb.5: 12
The bride must quench her baby’s thirst –Jn.21: 15
With honey in between –Isa.7: 15

Once weaned we’re called to God’s elite –Heb.5: 13-14
Though young and not quite tough
A soldier needs the choicest meat –Jn.21: 17
When milk is not enough –Heb.6: 1

Through fire and water troops must go –Isa.43: 2
God knows alone how long
So side by side to beat the foe –Ps.91: 7
They need of meat more strong

Such food Christ’s church must have in store –Pr.31: 15
The choicest in the land –Pr.21: 20
How else can soldiers go to war –Ps.144: 1
How else are they to stand –Ps.144: 12

The time to wait will soon have passed
Then all who truth have found
Will raise the flag that flies half-mast
And rally all around –Isa.11: 10…
