I Need Nothing

I've written this poem based on Philippians 3:4-11, hope to share with you.

I Need Nothing

I need nothing I don’t need
Any reason to put my trust and confidence in the flesh

I need nothing Nothing other than
Being completely united with Christ, sharing in his sufferings, and becoming like him in his death


I need nothing I don’t need
All those things that I once thought was valuable – for Christ’s sake they are now mere garbage

I need nothing Nothing other than
Knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, and the power of his resurrection

I need nothing I don’t need
A righteousness of my own that comes from the commands of the law

I need nothing Nothing other than
The righteousness that comes from God and is through faith in Christ.

This poem comes from the bottom of my heart. The book of Philippians is great, and it really transforms the way I see the Lord, myself and people around me. Really I don't anything, cos if I have the Lord, I have everything :)

"If I have the Lord, I have everything."
Amen!

I agree with you totally, Kitty :)
Jesus is all we need!

Audrey, have you heard of Cathy and Bredan's song "Jesus you are my Lord"? It says:

Jesus you are my Lord,
Jesus you are my everything,
Jesus you are my Lord,
you are ALL to me!!

Soo sooo true!

Wonderful poetry!

Kitty I don't know if you've ever read Dr. Creamer's site but he's doing an expanded study on Philipians you might really appreciate. ;-)
