2-14-15 Lambs Among Wolves

wolf-among-sheep

Have faith in Christ to move you through your day,

For you will go as lambs amongst the wolves.

You may think you are safe in all your ways,

But suddenly you’re under Satan’s hooves.

Yet as disciples of the living God

We’re sent to find the gems among the rough,

And where we go some angels fear to trod,

But we’ve been sent by Christ, and that’s enough.

Dear kin in Jesus, do not be afraid;

No matter what, you’re safely in His heart.

Don’t worry what to do against the blade;

He died for everyone, so do your part.

The wolves of hate and scorn are all around.

Be like the Lamb of God; let love abound

~~~~~~~~~~~

Behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.

Luke 10:3 KJV

1-15-15 Be of Good Cheer

Amédée_Varint_-_Christ_marchant_sur_la_mer

Whatever trouble has you far from shore,

Whenever you’re adrift in need of aid,

Wherever life has left you with no oar,

The Savior’s standing there; “be not afraid”.

There is no place that Jesus cannot go,

There is no problem that is too severe,

There is no question asked that He won’t know,

Don’t worry half as much; “be of good cheer”.

Just when you think that you are all alone,

Just when you sink your head and start to cry,

Just when your heart’s as heavy as a stone,

You’ll hear the voice of Jesus: “It is I”.

And as you dream of meeting Him one day,

He’s with you even now, not far away.

~~~~~~~~~~~

And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them,

walking on the sea.

And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea,

they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit;

and they cried out for fear.

But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying,

Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.

Matthew 14:25-27 KJV

1-8-15 Fulfilled

prophecy

Take every prophecy about the Lord

And check against the things that He has done,

And you will find that all across the board

Without a doubt He filled them every one.

Just trace the virgin birth until His death,

And then His resurrection and ascent,

The prophets witnessed with emboldened breath

About the Son of God from Heaven sent.

The odds of this are astronomical;

Indeed it leaves no doubt of who He is,

Yet many men still think it comical.

If only they could see this all is His.

            The proof of Christ our Savior are fulfilled

            And there are more to come the Father willed!

            ~~~~~~~~~~~

And he said unto them,

These are the words which I spake unto you,

while I was yet with you,

that all things must be fulfilled,

which were written in the law of Moses,

and in the prophets,

and in the psalms,

concerning me.

Luke 24:44 KJV

12-30-14 On Healing

jesus-sending-out-disciples-2-by-2

The world is groaning from the weight of sin,

And demons have grown bold and run berserk.

Disease, addiction, hate are thriving in

A perfect soup where unclean spirits lurk.

We are disciples of the living Lord,

So tasked to spread the gospel everywhere,

And when someone is saved in Christ restored,

Their demons are expelled with great despair.

With Jesus working through us He can purge

Whatever demons live within a soul.

Disease of every kind with faith are scourged;

One humble prayer brings health, the man made whole.

The power of Your blood, O Lord, is real!

Now in Your Holy name lead us to heal.

~~~~~~~~~~~

And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples,

he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out,

and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.

Matthew 10:1 KJV

10-11-14 Love One Another

love one anotheru

I think I understand what Jesus meant

When He said all the world would know we’re His,

If this love that we share does represent

The love He has for us and who He is.

You are my sister more than blood could share;

You are my brother more than DNA;

This bond we have mere physics can’t compare;

We share the same sweet spirit all the way.

And O this love has power multiplied!

By faith we know there’s nothing we can’t do.

We glorify His name when it’s applied;

By prayer and through God’s will all things are new.

The joy that fills my heart when you’re around

Reflects His love for us, great and profound.

~~~~~~~~~~~

By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples,

if ye have love one to another.

John 13:35 KJV
