The Spirit of Life

The Spirit, the law
God’s word in us
the piece of Christ
His light, shining
burning in our hearts
Eyes able to see
to do the work of Christ
to be his hands and feet
his voice in this world

The Spirit of life
of the love of God
guiding our every step
if we turn away from the world
and turn to Him instead
Spreading the message
the true grace of God,
servanthood of our king
the love of the master to all here below
a life with him instead

2 Corinthians 3:6
“He has made us competent as ministers
of a new covenant
--not of the letter but of the Spirit;
for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.”
