5-10-15 The Glory of God

glorify god

Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do,

do all to the glory of God.

1 Corinthians 10:31 KJV

            ~~~~~~~~~~~

God’s glory is the end of all His deeds;

The fact that you are here is proof of that.

You count on Him for all your wants and needs,

He always knows exactly where you’re at.

Acknowledge God in everything you do,

For by His Grace and Mercy you are here.

When Jesus walked the earth He always knew

God’s glory was the goal to persevere.

You glorify our God in Jesus’ name,

When you do anything with Him in mind.

Your love in deed and word gives God acclaim,

And when you share the gospel love’s refined.

Give glory to the Lord with every prayer;

Give glory when you breathe His precious air.

10-28-14 Acknowledging Christ

Caravaggio-Crucifixion_of_Peter

The time is coming and already here

When calling Christ your Lord brings prejudice:

Some places in the world your life’s to fear;

The civilized themselves will taunt and hiss.

You used to care how many friends you had,

But now there’s only One you call your Friend.

To be unpopular was once thought bad,

Now Christ’s the only one you can depend.

Acknowledge Jesus, don’t be shy to tell,

There’s some within that crowd to hear your voice.

The Spirit will convict them free from hell

And cause the angels then to so rejoice!

Confess the name of Christ both far and wide.

There’s nothing now to fear; He’s at your side.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Whosoever shall confess me before men,

him shall the Son of man also confess

before the angels of God.

Luke 12:8 KJV

10-7-14 Thank God

flowers ocean

Our Father, God of Heaven and the Earth,

You are the one we turn to all the time;

You know our faults and strength, You know our worth,

You view our lowly state and ev’ry crime.

Please give us Your advice with ev’ry stride;

Impart Your wisdom given readily.

There is no place to run, nowhere to hide

Your Being’s all around so steadily.

We follow in the footsteps of Your Son;

Give us the nerve to share His death and life.

You loved us all so much you sent the One

To shed His blood for all our sin so rife.

O God, we worship and acknowledge You;

Help us to not forget all that You do.

 ~~~~~

In all thy ways acknowledge him,

and he shall direct thy paths.

Proverbs 3:6 KJV

8-30-14 Go Right Away

confess

The first time you walk in a nursing home

You smell the stench of urine and decay,

But if you visit ev’ry day and roam,

The stench will seem less strong then fade away.

And so it is with sins we do commit,

Then fail to go confess it to the Lord;

In time it fades to gray and we forget

Though it still reeks to God and is abhorred.

Acknowledge right away your ev’ry sin,

Confess with guilt, repent with broken heart,

And if you are contrite He’ll cleanse within;

Forgiven now, God’s love will ne’er depart.

            The Holy Spirit marks your heart with shame;

            Take this to God while it is still aflame.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If we confess our sins,

he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins,

and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

1 John 1:9 KJV
