Today... 'Brother Of His Disciples' - Poem by Roy Allen
Jesus' brothers and sisters and mothers are we
and born by God's Spirit into His family
through obedience and doing the will of God.
Each of us is redeemed by the blood of the Lord.
Part of His glorious body on earth are we
and we'll be One in Him throughout eternity.
This heavenly family grows more like the Lord
as we reach out to others with the love of God
Against the very gates of hell the church endures
as the ages pass by and Christ's body matures.
A great multitude of saints are gathered above
all brought together by the power of His love.
Each precious member has been from sin set free
heirs of God and joint heirs with Jesus are we.
All destined to be with Him in Heaven above
saved and redeemed by the power of His love

The Bible calls You by many names
each one giving a glimpse of Your glory.
Like a cut diamond radiating in the sun
with every facet depicting an aspect
of Your Divine Nature.
Today I have thought of You as
