When we try to complete a picture
We will need a hint or two,
And when we unscramble many words
We require certain clues.
Although the words are before our eyes
We simply cannot see,
Because unless there’s a revelation
We’re blindfolded as can be.
We take the hint when we discern
What the motive really is,
As we read between the lines indeed
So the truth we will not miss.
There’s wisdom in the many hints
Particularly pertaining to the Lord,
Because eternal life and our redemption
Is found inside His word.
Jesus spoke in parables
And the hint was always there;
It’s unfortunate they couldn’t see or hear
Since they really did not care.
Likewise, when Christians share the gospel
Their intentions are pure and true,
Because they sincerely point to the important fact;
Salvation for me and you.
We take the hint through body language
Whether one is interested or not,
In what we say or in what we convey
And thus we know just when to stop.
But the hints are always seeds
And when they take root in the heart,
They flourish through God’s grace
Where there’s growth with a new start.
Let’s take the hint and thus be saved
That Jesus died and rose for us,
To redeem our soul and be reconciled
To God the Father through the cross.
