A Blessed Transformation

 This type of poem is called a diamante.  In the middle of the third line, there is a transition in which the rest of the words used  describe the last word of the poem.  I thought I better explain that so that this poem would make sense.

 

Sinner

lost, undone

groping, searching, wavering

doomed, hopeless…forgiven justified

overcoming, loving, serving

redeemed, transformed

Saint

 

 

Act 2:22  Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:

Act 2:23  Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain:

Act 2:37  Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? Act 2:38  Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 

 Col 1:13  Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: 

 Rom 1:7  To all that be in
Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.
 

1Co 1:2  Unto the
church of
God which is at
Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:
