Today... 'The Express Image Of The Person Of God - Poem by Roy Allen
We see the Fathers Glory in the face of Christ
The express image of His Being in flesh disguised
In Him we see the Fullness of the Godhead dwell
and are made complete in Jesus our Emmanuel
On the mount He blazed in glorious deity
Shining through His physical human frailty
None can comprehend such a great wonder as this
Beyond question the mystery of godliness
The mighty and infinite God with man has dwelt
The limitations of human existence felt
He came to earth to suffer for our sins and die
But is now seated with the Majesty on high
(additional background information is provided in the Poem's story box below)
Poet's Notes about The Poem
Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high:
Colossians 2: 9-10
For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.
1 Timothy 3: 16
Beyond all question, the mystery of godliness is great: He appeared in a body, was vindicated by the Spirit, was seen by angels, was preached among the nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in glory.

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
