1-21-16 No Expiration Date


Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.

John 6:27 KJV


A man must quickly eat the meat he buys

Or else it rots and does nobody good,

And he must live his life until he dies

And then his body’s done the best it could.

Don’t spend your days obsessing on the flesh;

It won’t endure beyond its meted time.

Work toward that meat that always will stay fresh

With everlasting life that’s so sublime.

What must you do to earn eternal food?

Believe in He whom God the Father sealed.

Let Jesus be the one your faith’s pursued.

Be hungry for the Word of Life revealed.

Seek first the sustenance that fills the soul;

The more that you consume the more you’re whole.


REMEMBER: Be as hungry for the Word as one who hasn’t eaten in three days.


12-21-15 Serve the Lord with Gladness


Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.

Psalm 100:2 KJV


Let’s serve the Lord with gladness, joy and cheer!

Let’s worship Him with singing full and strong!

Now come before His presence, gather near,

And praise our God with labor and with song!

Assemble all you saints and harmonize

By lifting up your voice in gratitude,

For by His loving grace our souls arise

To worship Christ our Lord with certitude!

Let’s praise the Lord, for He has shown His love!

Upon the cross He sacrificed His life

So those of us with faith could soar above,

To serve Him here and in the afterlife!

Let’s magnify the Lord and share the Word!

Let Jesus work through us now undeterred!


REMEMBER: When you serve the Lord with joy in your heart and a song on your lips, the unsaved will be more receptive to His light in you.

8-20-15 Made for Man

Mark 2:23-28

23 And it came to pass, that he went through the corn fields on the sabbath day; and his disciples began, as they went, to pluck the ears of corn.

24 And the Pharisees said unto him, Behold, why do they on the sabbath day that which is not lawful?

25 And he said unto them, Have ye never read what David did, when he had need, and was an hungred, he, and they that were with him?

26 How he went into the house of God in the days of Abiathar the high priest, and did eat the shewbread, which is not lawful to eat but for the priests, and gave also to them which were with him?

27 And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath:

28 Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.

Mark 2:23-28 KJV


Christ said the Sabbath day was made for man,

Twas made for good and not to bring him bad:

His soul may benefit in worship span;

His body rest from labor and be glad.

His necessary acts should not be banned:

A sheep can sure be rescued from a ditch, 1

And David’s hunger could not be pre-planned.2

The Sabbath’s made for man to so enrich.

Here Jesus was the Son of Man divine,3

The instituter of the Sabbath day.

He could have said “The Sabbath day is Mine,”

But taught them out of patient love the way.

Man wasn’t made to keep the Sabbath pure;

It’s made for man so he may rest assure.

1-13-15 God or Bust


Unless the Lord is present count it dead

Whatever that is built with human hands;

It may exist a thousand years ahead

But might as well be built with desert sand.

A city that’s forgotten God is doomed

Like Sodom and Gormorrah full of sin;

Then soon by wickedness it is consumed,

As dead inside as though it’s never been.

Invite the Lord to sanction all you do,

And let His Spirit guide your heart and mind;

The earthly things that honor God are true,

And all without His love will fall behind.

Let God build both your church and family,

And everywhere you go, there He will be.


Except the LORD build the house,

they labour in vain that build it:

except the LORD keep the city,

the watchman waketh but in vain.

Psalm 127:1 KJV

12-15-14 Heartily


No matter what you do, give it your all,

For you work not for men, but for your Lord.

The treasure you earn here won’t spend at all

In your eternal home to be explored.

Rededicate your life to Christ right now,

And do all that you do for Him alone.

Your earthly needs the Savior will endow;

Put all your trust in Jesus on the throne.

You’re only in this world for just a flash,

But what you do while here affects your soul.

Would you be known for seeking wads of cash,

Or working for the Lord your only goal?

It’s better to be praised by God than man,

So serve the Lord and do the best you can.


And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily,

as to the Lord, and not unto men;

Knowing that of the Lord

ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance:

for ye serve the Lord Christ.

Colossians 3:23,24 KJV

11-14-14 I Will Give You Rest

i will give you rest

If you are burdened by the weight of sin

And tired of the loneliness inside;

If you have lost the way and hope within,

Come unto me and here you can reside.

I’ve loved you long before the universe,

And always will no matter what you do.

I died for you and thus reversed the curse

Come unto me, my child, I’ll make you new.

You need not walk alone afraid of death;

You need not worry now or be distressed.

I’ll be here long beyond your final breath;

Come unto me and I will give you rest.

Come unto me and I will give you rest

Lay down your weary head and then be blessed.


Come unto me,

all ye that labour and are heavy laden,

and I will give you rest.

Matthew 11:28 KJV
