The Simplest Letter

(In his senior years administering some churches in Asia Minor, John the Beloved wrote a glorious letter of assurance.)

‘I have handled Light and Love

Basked in His perfect instruction

Saw Him put flesh on

Righteousness and brotherly kindness

Felt a fortunate, thankful heart bursting.

And I have His nature; His Spirit.

By this I have escaped the world

Its lusts, striving and fear.

It lies in wickedness

But that wickedness

Bows before the anointing

His anointing, liberally shared


Tweaking the nose of anti-Christ

Of denial and darkness.

And all of the other idols

Lose their pull.

Friends you may have

All of this as well

Directly from Him.

His Story (Word).

His identification (Water)

His cleansing (Blood).

The Son of God sent


As Saviour of the world.’
