Is Heaven Within? - Poem by Michael P. Johnson

If Heaven is not within you
If Heaven’s nought to say
Hell’s obscuring Heaven’s view
Salvation’s only Way

God’s Lamb, God’s Son, Jesus The Christ!
The living One who died
Who for man’s sin, God sacrificed
That truth be magnified

We need Life’s Lamp to shine within
God’s Promise to reside
Convict, and cleanse all shameful sin
One’s selfish soul will hide

Life’s living Seed, inside must reign
God’s Realm in flesh and bone
To nurture, grow, till born-again
As was Life’s Cornerstone

The risen Jesus, life’s first born
Life’s King, who give’s life’s Breath
Life’s Guarantee, Salvation’s Dawn
Life’s conqueror of death

If Heaven’s Truth is not your Guide
If Christ is not your King
Bid by faith, that He’ll come inside
Life’s true Kingdom, to bring

Of living Breath, of breathing stone
Power, of the Divine
To Heaven’s glory, love’s Root has grown
A Realm that’s yours and mine

Mine! Trusting in Jesus, God’s Son
God’s Kingdom receiver
Yours! Today, if life’s grace you’ve won
Being a Christ believer…..
