Andrew Pell poetry gift of the word

John 1
New King James Version (NKJV)

The Eternal Word

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend[a] it.
 
The gift of the word will give light and love.
There a baby was born incarnated from the God of love.
A helpless babe that changed the world as it was then and is to come,
God’s work is always moving forward, never sleeping, so much more to be done
A new age that enlightens because of the gift of the word.
A freshness that the world has not seen or heard,
But does the world hear the message today?
It will never go out of fashion.
It is part of God’s divine causation.
The gift of the word will give light and love.
Embrace the word and be ambassadors for the God of Love
For God is Love.
