3-9-15 Love Your Wife

marriage love

The love a husband has for his own wife

Is true and tender, gentle, warm and wide,

Protecting her from harm with his own life,

Attending to her needs as can provide.

This love is as the Savior loved the church,

Unselfish, sacrificial, just and pure,

And if she lose her way then lead the search,

Or if she comes down ill then find the cure.

A husband loves his wife with all he has,

And as the Lord loves him, he has it all.

Forsaking everything exactly as

The Lord forsook His blood for Adam’s fall.

O husbands! Love your wives as Christ loves you,

Becoming then in essence one from two.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Husbands, love your wives,

even as Christ also loved the church,

and gave himself for it

Ephesians 5:25 KJV

2-18-15 The Word

cosmos

Before the world, our Savior was the Word;

Both God and with God, Logos was and is,

Who with His voice the new born heavens stirred,

And all creation rightfully is His.

We cannot scarce imagine this at all,

But God Himself came down and walked the earth,

To save us from the curse of Adam’s fall;

The Word as flesh was perfect from His birth.

How wonderful that God did love us SO

That He BE-came a man, this Word divine!

He sacrificed Himself so all would know

Just how to be the branch with He the vine.

Now, in the first beginning was the Word.

With God and God Himself, the Word is heard.

~~~~~~~~~~~

In the beginning was the Word,

and the Word was with God,

and the Word was God.

John 1:1 KJV

11-21-14 Savior

shepherd

The Son of man did come to seek and save

Those lost from Adam’s sin so long ago,

For God so loved the world His Son He gave

To sacrifice his life for all below.

While here within the flesh the Savior taught

Salvation’s way through faith in who he is,

And made disciples which he fully wrought

To tread the earth and bring back what was his.

Hear Jesus call your name, yes, even now!

He calls across the gulf of sin and death.

Just take his hand, surrender and allow

The Son of God to give eternal breath.

He sought you out because he loves you so

He’s here to take you home; come on, let’s go!

~~~~~~~~~~~

For the Son of man is come to seek

and to save that which was lost.

Luke 19:10 KJV

9-28-14 Under Grace

shackles_broken1

Now that you’ve come from that rugged cross

And left your sins up there on Calvary,

Now that the sting of death is at a loss,

And Jesus is the only face you see,

No longer are you subject to the law

That governed over Adam until now;

No longer sin has trapped you in it’s maw,

No longer made you slave behind the plow.

You are now under grace that won’t accuse,

Regenerating Christ inside of you;

If you should sin it’s only if you choose,

For Satan has no power to pursue.

You’ve come down off the cross under God’s grace;

Christ died for you that you might win the race.

 ~~~~~

For sin shall not have dominion over you:

for ye are not under the law, but under grace.

Romans 6:14 KJV

080414 You Are My King

Jesus on the throne

You are my King, O Jesus Christ, my Lord!

I bow to You and pledge my very life,

The very life that You in me restored,

And now I serve You in this world of strife.

The battle for the souls of Adam’s sons

Is raging here upon this sinful sphere,

And faithfully I fight for Your loved ones;

With You as King I’ve nothing here to fear.

The Kingdom that You rule is Heaven now,

But when You come again this will be Yours,

Reclaiming all when ev’ry knee shall bow;

There’ll be no weeping then and no more wars.

O Jesus, King of Kings and Lord of Lords

Use me, O Christ, I’m Yours forever more!

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

Jesus answered,

“My kingdom is not of this world.”

John 18:36 KJV

8-1-14 Sinfected

sin1

When Adam fell, he plunged the world in sin;

The serpent roamed the Earth to blind us all,

Corrupting ev’rything he found therein

And brought decay and death with sickened pall.

When we are born, we are so innocent,

But all around us sin does permeate;

We reach an age to choose our own descent,

And in the course of time we take the bait.

Infected now, we can’t approach God’s throne,

But with His love He offers us a chance,

A sacrifice by which we may atone;

If we believe the Lamb we will advance.

In sin we all fall short of Heaven’s gate,

But Jesus died for us to change our fate.

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

For all have sinned,

and come short of the glory of God.

Romans 3:23
