Chasm

There is a chasm between others and me

A chasm of belief, of convictions and hate

For if they knew what I believe and I they,

There would be little love between us.

The bridge between them is prayer.

No matter how unpleasing, unloving, or unkind

They may be

I may be

Prayer can convict me that  the same one who died for me

Died for them also

And that love is found in talking with that one who died.

 

Pray in the Spirit at all times in every prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert and always persevere in supplication for all the saints. Ephesians 6:18

About grantimusmax

Grant Barnes, aka Grantimus Maximus, aka The Nerdcore Theologian. He is a graduate of Perkins School of Theology with a Masters Degree in Divinity. He is also a commissioned elder in the United Methodist Church, and Senior Pastor at Hemphill First United Methodist Church and Pineland United Methodist Church. He graduated from Texas State University Cum Laude with a Bachelor's degree in English, minor in History. He watches way too many movies, reads too many books, listens to too much music, and plays too many video games to ever join the mundane reality people claim is the "Real World." He rejects your reality, and replaces it with a vision of what could be, a better one, shaped by his love for God.
