Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus

Philippians 2:5 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

Now, may you always have the mind of Christ,

Who showed us how to live in love’s embrace;

That love be willing to be sacrificed,

And then no matter what be full of grace.

He was the perfect pattern, free from sin,

A humble servant with a heart to give,

Obedient to God through thick and thin,

And even unto death chose to forgive.

The mind of Christ is constantly in prayer,

Submitting to the will of Abba God,

Unbroken intercession to repair

The brokenness of man which sin has flawed.

Think only of those things that love sufficed;

Yes, may you always have the mind of Christ.

7-4-15 The Balm of Gilead

Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am weak:

O LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed.

Psalm 6:2

~~~~~~~~~~~

If you are in the ocean you are wet;

Sin’s in your DNA, the worst disease.

The balm of Gilead will cure you yet;

Beg mercy from the Lord, that healing breeze.

You do not have the strength to overcome

The constant draw of sin that weights your soul.

Cry out your helplessness – God’s will be done,

Christ holds you up to Heaven, light and whole.

A broken bone reminds you constantly,

To take it to a doctor to be set.

Seek Christ: the Great Physician set you free;

He conquered hell and death without regret.

Let go and let the Savior give relief

Depend upon Him always in your grief.

10-17-14 The Lord’s Prayer 02: Thy Kingdom Come

earth from space

O, Father, when Your kingdom came as man

Upon the form of Jesus Christ Your Son,

He did all things according to Your plan;

He lived and died that Your will would be done.

Your kingdom is made know to these who gave

Our faith to Christ as Saviour in our lives,

And with Your grace You choose our souls to save

To tell the world Your kingdom will revive.

O God, let now Your will be done on earth

As it is done in heaven perfectly;

We seek Your will with all our heart and worth

That it be done with love and constantly.

The fullness of Your kingdom’s coming soon;

Your will on earth as heaven both in tune.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Thy kingdom come.

Thy will be done in earth,

as it is in heaven.

Matthew 6:10 KJV
