Linked With Jesus

by Paul Mayes Jamar

Colossians 3:12

Within the mysterious inner workings of man,
does the unfathomed seat of God’s mercy stand.

Only the elect possess His power to heal,
transform lives, and show kindness others feel.

It requires a humbleness of mind,
meekness, long suffering, and being kind.

Truly, such persons possess His holiness,
from God’s beloved hand streams this bliss.

When administered to others, they see
Jesus’ transformation in you and me.

It all starts in the inner parts of our being,
with a surrendered heart, and with God agreeing.

In faith that He is truly who elected us,
to be forever linked to the Spirit of Jesus.
