12-19-14 Chosen

god-chose-you

When you were still a slave and doomed to death,

The Savior bought you with His very life.

He chose you for His own, your pulse and breath,

Ordained to follow Him through sweat and strife.

When you were Spirit-filled and born anew,

He showed you how to love and live and pray,

Then sent you out to search the whole world through

To find the lost before they slip away.

The souls that come to Him must be matured

To carry on the work He’ll have them do.

Whatever you’re in need of rest assured,

Just ask the Father, He will see you through.

Christ chose you, He ordained you, You are His,

A slave to Jesus now, and all He is.  

~~~~~~~~~~~

Ye have not chosen me,

but I have chosen you,

and ordained you,

that ye should go and bring forth fruit,

and that your fruit should remain:

that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name,

he may give it you.

John 15:16 KJV

8-27-14 Keeping It Real

the cross

It’s tempting to show just how much you know

About the world and all such earthly things,

But this you know is only so much show

Compared to Jesus Christ, the King of Kings.

When you relate the gospel keep it pure

As Christ’s salvation to the souls of men:

Atonement through His blood you can be sure,

And gave His life for all your sins, amen.

So concentrate on Jesus, Son of God;

Don’t let your worldly knowledge make you stray.

This moment may be all you have to laud

The sacrifice He made for them that day.

            Evangelize to all about the cross;

            Temporal education’s mostly dross.

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

For I determined not to know any thing among you,

save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.

1 Corinthians 2:2 KJV
