12-14-14 The Servant

servant

The Lord of Lords, God’s only Son came here,

Deserving all our pomp and circumstance,

But took upon Himself the life austere,

To give His all so we have half a chance.

This lowly man the heavens did create,

Deserving of a throne right next to God

And worship from us all both small and great,

Took on the servant’s role with no facade.

And Jesus made His life a sacrifice,

A meek and perfect Lamb, obedient.

The debt for all our sins He paid the price

With His own humble blood and His consent.

If we are here to serve our Lord and King,

We must be servant to just everything.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto,

but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

Matthew 20:28 KJV

12-04-14 Be Vigilant

angry-male-lion-1280x1024

My friend in Christ, no time to sleep this night,

For Satan prowls the Earth hollow and mean.

He hungers for the lonely sheep of light

Who wander through the shadows in between.

The devil stomps about and roars out loud;

So many prey around, no need to creep.

Be vigilant, my sister, don’t be cowed;

He seeks your sons and daughters as they sleep.

The perfect Lamb protects us with his blood,

But not all of our brothers are secure.

They squat a drunken stupor in the mud;

We must still try to save them, so endure.

Your adversary’s longing to devour,

A starved voracious lion this dark hour.

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

Be sober, be vigilant;

because your adversary the devil,

as a roaring lion, walketh about,

seeking whom he may devour

1 Peter 5:8 KJV

10-16-14 The Lord’s Prayer 01: Hallowed Be Thy Name

hallowed by thy name

O God, Author of life, the great I AM,

We come to You on fearful, bended knees;

On our behalf here sits the Worthy Lamb,

That on His life we call You Father, please.

And O with joy and gratitude we pray,

Creations, now Your children for all time;

We reach to You in Heaven on this day

With prayers and supplications upward climb.

Your Hallowed Name is worshipped everywhere,

In all the sounds of Heaven and below;

Our Saviour Jesus taught us this Lord’s Prayer

So that our bond with You may always grow.

Accept our reverent plea, O Father God;

Within Your Presence we are humbly awed.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Our Father which art in heaven,

Hallowed be thy name.

Matthew 6:9 KJV

9-2-14 Lord, Lord

hypocrite 01

Not ev’ryone who says they love God does;

Their heart is just as empty as their word.

They say the things you want to hear because

They want to be accepted and preferred.

They circumnavigate God’s will and way

To serve their own agenda and desire.

Don’t be misled by them and what they say;

Have faith in Jesus only, not a liar.

Draw near to God in prayer, His will be done;

Let Jesus be your guide, you can’t go wrong.

Submit your life to Christ, God’s precious Son,

And let Him take you Home where you belong.

            Not all who call Him Lord will be let in,

            Just those who let the Lamb erase their sin.

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

Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord,

shall enter into the kingdom of heaven;

 but he that doeth the will of my Father

which is in heaven.

Matthew 7:21 KJV

8-1-14 Sinfected

sin1

When Adam fell, he plunged the world in sin;

The serpent roamed the Earth to blind us all,

Corrupting ev’rything he found therein

And brought decay and death with sickened pall.

When we are born, we are so innocent,

But all around us sin does permeate;

We reach an age to choose our own descent,

And in the course of time we take the bait.

Infected now, we can’t approach God’s throne,

But with His love He offers us a chance,

A sacrifice by which we may atone;

If we believe the Lamb we will advance.

In sin we all fall short of Heaven’s gate,

But Jesus died for us to change our fate.

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

For all have sinned,

and come short of the glory of God.

Romans 3:23
