TITLE: Christian Keywords, A to Z
By Tim Pickl


Atonement with God through the blood of Jesus Christ applied to my life;

Being born again by repenting and being baptized in the name of Jesus;

Constantly in communion with Christ by being filled with the Holy Spirit.

Determining to disciple myself with the apostles’ doctrine—then others:

Everywhere evangelizing by being an epistle: I am read by everyone.

Forgetting those things which are behind me, I press forward in faith:

Giving God glory, always thankful for all things, especially His grace.

Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord: one faith, one baptism;

I love and trust the Lord with all of my heart, soul, mind and strength.

Jesus died for me and by His blood I am now justified in newness of life;

Keeping the faith: doing justly, loving mercy: I walk humbly with Him.

Leaning on Him and learning His Word, always speaking the truth in love.

Mindful of the mercy He provides for me every morning, I choose to pray;

Needing to spend time in the presence of Jesus every day, I humble myself.

Opting to pray, and seek His face: I turn from my wicked ways—I repent.

Perfect love casts out all fear: if I am filled with fear I will be in torment.

Quitting is not an option: I bind that spirit of discouragement right now;

Released from fear, I encourage myself in the Lord, just like David did.

Standing therefore, having on the whole armor of God, I resist the devil:

Truth, righteousness, peace, faith, salvation, The Word of God shines!

Unleash the power of God daily by praying in the Spirit for all saints;

Victory in Jesus is my daily goal: obedience to His Word is the key.

Worship His Majesty: Jesus is worthy of all of my thanks and praise!

eXamining myself truthfully, I allow Him to see every secret place.

Yearning for that day when I will stand and see Jesus face-to-face:

Zion’s together in one accord: it’s the marriage supper of The Lamb.

Wow! You worked hard on this! Great job.

I especially liked, "Everywhere evangelizing by being an epistle: I am read by everyone."

Keep writing.

Very cool! I would stick this inspiring Acrostic poem to my fridge, if my fridge wasn't non-mangnetic stainless steel.

My favorite line is S, because I've recenlty been working on an article about standing firm against the enemy's schemes by puting on the whole armor of God, and I can't tell you how delighted I was to see this is exactly what you wrote for S!

I think that this is quite clever. You did a fantastic job of listing the ways to find Jesus. It was definitely on topic and it was fresh and original. Good job.
