JESUS GOD'S SON

Jesus – God's beloved Son,
Had God's approval before His earthly life had begun.
Jesus came to set the standard by which we are to live,
And to do this, His own life, he freely did give.
Jesus pleased His Father in all that He did,
That man – from sin – could be rid.
As a lad of twelve he was about his Father's business,
And all through His physical life manifest faithfulness.
God was well pleased as Christ in life grew,
Fulfilling all the Father sent Him to do;
Progressing in stature and wisdom well,
Giving to man exactly what God had for Him to tell.
Jesus grew in favor with God and benefited man,
For he opened the door to the Heavenly land.
We need to grow with Jesus every day,
For He is the only one, that to God, knows the way;
That we may receive entrance into God's mansion above,
And continue throughout eternity in God's unending love.
