Every single accessory
Has a beauty of its own,
But independent from the main outfit
That makes a statement all alone.
An accessory is multi-purposed
As it adds or it detracts;
An accessory is a fashion item
That reveals or hides the facts.
Is Jesus just an accessory
To our every waking hour?
Or is He our all-in-all
Portraying wisdom with much power?
Is Jesus just our handbag
That we choose to change each day?
Or is He stamped in our heart and soul
As a fixture that will stay?
Is Jesus just a scarf
That we’re wrapped to have around?
Or does He inspire our mind and thoughts
So much godly fruit abounds.
Is Jesus like our latest shoes
Where we walk our chosen path?
Or are we cautious in our walk with Him
So we’re truly set apart?
An accessory is an addition
That believes to complete the part;
It’s an addition that we require
To conceal a yearning heart.
When the branch is truly grafted in
Embellishments are not required;
Since true nourishment comes from the simple source
From God’s love and life inspired.

“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me and I in him bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered, and they gather them and throw them into the fire and they are burned.” John 15:5-6
