“As Barth”: Entry #7

The seventh entry comes from Charles Cameron, whose current blog combines the content of his past blogs, Christ in all the Scriptures, The Theology of G C Berkouwer, and Bible Reading Notes.

Barth’s Theme - “Not I but Christ”
“Karl Barth” is not the Name. Jesus, for salvation, came.
Barth points us to the One - Jesus Christ, God’s only Son.
If Barth were here today, I think he would still say,
“The only Name is Jesus.” This is what he would say.
Karl Barth spoke of Christ’s grace. Yes! Karl Barth knew his place.
He did not seek the glory. He wrote to tell Christ’s story.
Look! Here comes Doctor Barth! It doesn’t sound quite right!
If God’s Word claims our heart, “Jesus only” is in our sight.
“Barth is small. Christ is great.” This is what “KB” said.
We’re in an awful state when we say “Barth is great ...”.
Karl Barth wrote many books. What were they all about?
To Jesus Christ he looks. Let’s get His message out.
Words of his text are few. They are addressed to you.
“The Bible tells us so” and Jesus helps us grow.
Karl Barth said, “Less of me”. More of Christ may we see.
When we read Barth’s CD, may Christ be all we see.
Karl Barth calls us to praise. Our songs to Christ we raise.
With the Lord we will win. He is Victor over sin.
Dare we forget Karl Barth? Let Jesus fill your heart,
This, he asks us to do: Trust in Christ. He loves you.
If you and I do this - Put Jesus first and not KB -
Barth’s point we will not miss, Jesus’ people we will be.

The contest will end on July 4, at which point we will have a poll to decide who is the winner. If you wish to enter the contest, email me here. See the original post for more information.
