Bought by the Blood

His Coming Kingdom

This is the first of three poems based on the Sermon on The Mount.  I feel like the Sermon on the Mount is best summed up by 2 Corinthians 5:7 where it talks about how we walk by faith and not by sight.  In the Sermon on the Mount we are called to not look at outward appearances, but to look at the heart.  The primary objective of the Sermon on the Mount is to drive our eyes away from the kingdom of this world to the kingdom of Heaven.   We are shown how sinful we are and how much we need a Savior.  The rewards of this world pale in comparison to the Kingdom of Heaven and that is what this poem is about.

This life is passing away.
Nothing in it is certain.
All that it offers is temporal
But a higher prize awaits.

Jesus died to redeem a people,
Purchased by His blood to be holy,
Set apart to glorify Him
And love for His coming kingdom.

Therefore forsake all this world offer
Set your heart and passion on Heaven
Where Christ, your treasure awaits,
He is worth and His excellence is eternal.
