11-22-14 Slave to Sin

slave to sin

If you are not a Christ-born child of God,

There’s nowhere left to go, no one to help,

For sin has got you bound and scarred and flawed,

A hopeless slave in debt, the devil’s whelp.

No matter how you try to do just good,

The chains of sin are fast around your neck,

But freedom’s found between three nails and wood:

The blood of Jesus saves you from sin’s beck.

Just give your life to Christ, the choice is yours,

And let the Holy Spirit show the way,

And if you fall, repent, God’s mercy soars;

You now belong to Christ, in him you pray.

When Jesus died for you he took your sin,

So live for him, my brother, now begin!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Jesus answered them,

Verily, verily, I say unto you,

Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.

John 8:34 KJV

11-9-14 Healed

Jesus Healing

You heard my cries and healed me, O my God,

And from Your loving touch I now am whole.

I once was sick from sin, my life was flawed,

But You gave me the cure and freed my soul.

You are the Great Physician, O my Lord;

My life is now completely in Your hands.

The medicine You give has me restored

And now I praise Your name across these lands.

You loved the world so much You sent Your Son

Who caused the lame to walk and blind to see,

And then took all our sin and died but won

When He defeated death to set us free.

O Lord my God, You heard my wretched groan

Reached down and made me well, no more alone.

~~~~~~~~~~~

O LORD my God, I cried unto thee,

and thou hast healed me.

Psalm 30:2 KJV

10-27-14 Stand Fast

bondage

If you call Christ your Lord you now are free

Of all the damning nature of your sin;

His sacrifice gives you such liberty

A new life in the Spirit does begin.

With freedom you will surely draw such hate,

The world will want you back within its grip;

Stand fast with Christ, don’t take the devil’s bait,

The price of freedom sometimes means the whip.

The yoke of bondage once held you in chains,

But now you’re free beneath His cleansing blood;

Whatever happens now, the growth, the pains,

Are not worth falling back into the mud.

Not only is the Savior now your friend,

He’s just a prayer away and will defend.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Stand fast therefore in the liberty

wherewith Christ hath made us free,

and be not entangled again

with the yoke of bondage.

Galatians 5:1 KJV

10-22-14 Shine

light in hands - pray the crucifix in darkness

The Gospel light will beam from those who’s saved,

For who can hide the Sun up in the sky?

Like shackels taken off the one enslaved,

He’ll shout his freedom from the mountain high.

Just as the Sun shines bright on everyone,

Make manifest to all salvation’s plan.

The things you say and do reflects the Son,

Made known to every woman, child and man.

A tree is known by all the fruit it bears,

And O how sweet the message of the Lord!

His blessing is passed on from one who shares

And keeps on spreading out through those restored.

So when you shine the light of Christ’s pure love

You glorify your Father up above.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Let your light so shine before men,

that they may see your good works,

and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Matthew 5:16 KJV

10-2-14 Speak

speak

In Syria are Christians being killed

For not converting to the Muslim view,

And in the USA the schools are filled

With kids that don’t know Jesus to be true.

We didn’t see our Savior killed that day;

We didn’t see Him rise up from the tomb,

But all we see and hear He made this way

So we may know the Truth and not assume.

From prayer are miracles you can’t deny;

You’ve heard the Holy Spirit speak to you.

Speak boldly of these things though men may try

To kill the gospel and your freedom, too.

You know that what you’ve seen and heard is right;

Be brave! Defend the gospel truth forthright.

~~~~~

For we cannot but speak the things

which we have seen and heard.

Acts 4:20 KJV
