3-19-15 Believe in the Light

believe in the light

The Son of God rode on a simple ass

Into Jerusalem the perfect Lamb.

He knew His sacrifice would come to pass;

This was no dress rehersal, was no sham.

The crowd did not yet grasp His prophecy

That He would soon be lifted from their midst.

“Walk in the light,” Christ said, “while you still see,

For when this light is gone, it will be missed,

And while you still have light, believe in Me,

That you may be the children of the light.”

O friend! If you believe Him now, He’ll set you free,

His light will be in you, His Spirit bright!

Though you can’t see His body, still believe;

Eternal life in Him you will receive.

~~~~~~~~~~~

While ye have light, believe in the light,

that ye may be the children of light. 

John 12:36 KJV

2-5-15 Eating with Sinners

jesus-with-sinners unknown artist

The Savior came to Earth with one real goal,

To save us sinners from our helpless state.

In order for the Lord to make us whole

He had to sit with us and share our plate.

If Christ had wanted, He’d have climbed the throne

And saved His people from the Roman rule,

But He had bigger plans, to thus atone

For all our sins upon the cross so cruel.

So here He was, our God, the great I AM,

Receiving sinners in His company.

He lived among us as the perfect Lamb;

He gave His life for us to set us free.

If you surround yourself with Christian kind

How can you help the Savior heal the blind?

~~~~~~~~~~~

And the Pharisees and scribes murmured, saying,

This man receiveth sinners, and eateth with them.

Luke 15:2 KJV

12-17-14 Hands Up!

praise

I lift my hands in praise, O Lord and King,

Surrendering my will to You above!

Your name’s exalted, let the whole world sing

Eternal hymns of  glory, thanks and love!

And while I live Your presence fills my heart,

Directing every word that I should say!

Your Holy Spirit’s here, it won’t depart!

Thank God for You, my Savior, every way!

To me You are the way, the truth, the life,

The perfect Lamb that gave Your life for me!

The world may try to blind me with its strife,

But You just touch my eyes and I can see!

I lift my hands in praise, O Lord and King!

Your name’s exalted, let the whole world sing!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Thus will I bless thee while I live:

I will lift up my hands in thy name.

Psalm 63:4 KJV

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
