2-24-15 Profit and Loss

Profit and Loss

A business man will tell you in a flash

The bottom line is profit for success.

Without this benefit his store will crash,

Then customers and workers would distress.

What profit will it be upon a man

To gain the world but lose his very soul?

He’s here because his Maker has a plan:

To save the world through Jesus is His goal.

If you take all the money on the Earth

And stack it to the sky like Babylon,

You could not climb to Heaven with its worth;

But give your life to Christ and you’ll be drawn.

The key to your success rose from the dead.

He calls you now to eat the broken bread.

~~~~~~~~~~~

For what shall it profit a man,

if he shall gain the whole world,

and lose his own soul?

Mark 8:36 KJV

1-27-15 Nothing

Mortality

The moment you were born you did not bring

A whit beyond the barest flesh and bone;

You do not really own a single thing

Belonging to this world of wood and stone,

And all the stuff that you accumulate,

No matter what it’s worth to mortal man,

Will still be here when you leave this estate;

In fact you’ll have the same as you began.

Be grateful for the things that you possess

For it can all be gone within a flash;

The only matter you should dare obsess

Is being more like Christ, His way suffice.

From nothing bodies come, to nothing go

Yet all you do between your soul will show.

~~~~~~~~~~~

For we brought nothing into this world, 

and it is certain we can carry nothing out.

1 Timothy 6:7 KJV

10-30-14 Not Flesh and Blood

St Michael Archangel Trampling Satan Guido Reni

The battle’s not with flesh but for the soul,

Against an enemy with cunning wiles,

An evil set to wrestle for control

With arguments and force or charm and smiles.

He wants to take your friends and family,

Your church, your neighborhood, your country, too.

There is one thing that you can both agree:

The time grows short; there’s much work left to do.

Don’t take this foe for granted; don’t you sleep!

The battle’s now; keep God’s whole armor on!

With prayer within your heart and courage keep;

With Jesus by your side success is drawn!

The rulers of the darkness of this world

Don’t stand a chance; let Christ’s whole flag unfurl!

~~~~~~~~~~~

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood,

but against principalities, against powers,

against the rulers of the darkness of this world,

against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Ephesians 6:12 KJV
