OPEN  BOOKS

 

Our lives as written in complete books

Our names prayerfully written in the “Book of Life”

Set before the King of Compassion

The King of Kindness who knows what we are made of

Who proclaimed, as the Great Shepherd, only love for His sheep;

Then He held the little children in His arms,

Touched the blind so they could see,

Lifted up lepers from the dirt and grime of this place,

Cleansed the minds of the demon tormented,

Freely gave new life to the many walking dead

Snared by the world and common human nature,

Holy love revealed to the willing few

Displayed with consuming passion on Jerusalem’s hill.

Mystery of the greatness of God,

Even all the stars counted, names given;

The telescopes of man gaze upon the doorstep to infinity

Mere reflections of eternity,

Eyes only grow large with perplexed amazement.

The Judge on His throne holds the balance

Each life book of a man or woman held with purest honesty

Names in the holy Book of Life shine more brightly than stars,

Those who drank the cup of grace and mercy.

Those who would not

Stand in naked shame

All deeds, all words, all thoughts

In justice seen clearly by all.

About Gary Bertnick

I was a Minnesota teenager in the late 1960's. I was drafted into the military after an intense time at an engineering school. As a graduate chemical engineer and former athlete, I became a Marine Corps private. The Lord spoke to me through a friend while visiting Rapid City,S.D. My true discipleship began in Southern California and was boosted through association with Morris Cerullo Ministry and others. I fed upon the Scriptures and have learned to be led by the Holy Spirit. I know what the fear of the Lord is. What I write is done to honor the Lord and to touch the lives of those who know Him as well as those who should.
