The Greatest Madness

Updated on March 20, 2012

What is the Greatest Madness?

To love without being loved in return

What is the greatest sadness?

To see people go to the eternal damnation.

Many asked, “Who is this Jesus?”

Whom I have so much spoken

He’s a Man who values broken heart pieces

One and Only God’s love token.

He always keeps the promised Word

Not like the men who hurt

The day the truth I heard

Gave myself and accepted His comfort.

He’s the Horn of Salvation

First born from the Dead

To love is His only intention

Christ like peoples’ Head.

Lovers celebrate Valentine’s Day each year

Giving cards, gifts and red roses

But, the celebration is to remember St. Valentine dear

Who died for his lover, Jesus.

If Jesus is a myth, there won’t be miracles

If Jesus is a sinner, there won’t be a saviour

If Jesus is just a philosopher, He won’t teach practical

If Jesus is a liar, there won’t be believers.

Can a man save himself by doing good?

Can anyone be a Christian by signing papers?

Can anyone live only by food?

Can anyone hide their true fervours?

Jesus came to this world

To save sinners like you and me

Being blameless and the Holy Word

Died and raised to live, alive in you and me.

If you think I say crap

Why don’t you try to find Him by yourself

Talk to Jesus like a friend whom you can chat

His grace and revelation, you’ll experience by yourself.

What Will We Find In 2012? (Jeremiah 29:11-13)

For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. (NIV)

There are many prophecies and predictions for 2012 which have been released over the internet, and many of them speak of doom and gloom. Our Father's Word for the coming year is different, and I choose to believe God's Word and not the word of man. I choose to receive the positive and powerful word of my Father as I step into a new year. We may not know what 2012 holds, but we know the One who does. He holds this year in His mighty hands!

You are both a teacher and a student in this world. Learn from others and pass your lessons along with kindness and compassion :)

What you give God, He'll give you double of what you have given Him :)

      You are absolutely right. His only purpose is to love us miserable creatures. Wonderful words.
