Favourite Reflections: A Poem for Jesus

We start off this reflection by sending our heartfelt and sincere condolences to Nancy Rose, and family, in the passing of John. John was a loving and devoted husband, father, father-in-law, grandfather, brother and friend. He was a dedicated servant of God who loved, as a Pastor, to interact with God’s people. His ministry in our midst will be remembered with joy. Nancy and family, we pray that God’s comfort and grace will be with you this day.


The following is a poem I wrote to both communicate and encourage you through God's grace in my life and yours. My prayer is that it would lift your spirits and draw you closer to the Saviour this day. It is simply entitled


”His Name Is Jesus”


I was looking for an answer

It was standing right before me

It came in swaddling clothes

In a manger and ended on a tree (John 1:14)


It was a story of revelation

A message from above

A picture of eternal life

A life of hope and love (2 Corinthians 4:6)


I was drawn to the person

Of a man from Galilee

Of a gentle humble Saviour

Who gave His life for me (John 3:16)


His hand was strong and sturdy

An anchor for my soul

His promise was to never leave me

To be faithful and never let me go (Hebrews 13:5b)


The journey has been rewarding

It has set my soul free

To be what God designed me for

To be all that I can be (Philippians 1:6)


He calls me to be a servant

To love and care and lead

To be a Pastor called by grace

To encompass His people to be free (2 Corinthians 4:5)


Each day he comes to me

And calls me to His word

To listen to His still small voice

And to go forward into the world (2 Timothy 2:15)


His never ending love is our guide

His prophecies are sure and true

He is coming again to claim us all

With His precious people too (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)


So take hold my friend of the Gentle One

Who gave His life for thee

Let Him be your master and guide

His perfect will to be. (1 John 1:1-4)


To God’s Glory - November 17, 2020.
