1-1-16 Please Let Him In

open up the door and let Him in

Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

Revelation 3:20 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

O sinner, hear Him knocking at your door!

The hour is late; don’t let Him pass you by!

Please let Him in; He’s who you’re looking for!

The beating of your heart means He’s nearby!

O sinner, hear Him calling out your name!

Do you not recognize your Savior’s voice?

Please let Him in; you’ll never be the same!

Just open up your heart and you’ll rejoice!

O sinner, Jesus died that you might live!

When He was on the cross He thought of you!

Please let Him in with all His love to give!

Don’t let another moment pass you through!

O sinner, drink with Christ His cup of bliss!

Please let Him in! Eternity’s His kiss!

REMEMBER: The choice is yours. Choose Christ!

6-28-15 The Children of Wrath

child of wrath

Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

Ephesians 2:3 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

The world is filled with sin up to the brim

And we think we are outside looking in.

I tell you, brother, things are looking grim,

But don’t pretend you’re perfect in your win!

Instead of pointing fingers at the rest,

Remember you were where they are right now.

Right now it is God’s grace that has you blessed;

Without it you’d have hell to pay, and how!

You may have been a step from reprobate

When you chose to accept the Savior’s hand.

Each day such people cross right by your gate.

Please give them love, it may be their last stand!

Don’t be judgmental, be compassionate.

Without Christ’s cleansing blood you’d be unfit.

6-5-15 Age With Grace

cute couple

2 That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate,

sound in faith, in charity, in patience.

3 The aged women likewise,

that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness,

not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things

Titus 2:2-3 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

As much as you despise it you must age,

Until one day you feel the weight of years,

But with the wrinkles brings the knowing sage,

Experienced in laughter, calm and tears.

If you should ever act your age it’s now,

For younger eyes are looking up to you.

Let sober living shine upon your brow,

And all the words you say be sound and true.

You have a grave responsibility

To be the light of Christ in faith and love.

Endure the world each day more patiently,

And show us how to pray to God above.

To all the aged men and women saints,

Spend all your time in praise and not complaints.

7-10-14 No Looking Back

plough

If you desire to follow Jesus now

You must be ready now to lose your life,

For laying hands upon the heavy plow

Demands you give your all through whip or knife.

There can be nothing you have left behind

That makes you want to stop and turn around.

The way of Christ requires all your mind,

Your body and your love for Him profound.

If you look back upon your former days

And long for something you once loved to do,

You’ll surely stumble, fall and lose your way,

So leave the past behind and follow through.

When you make Jesus Christ your Lord and Saviour

You leave upon the cross your old behaviour.

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

“No man, having put his hand to the plough,

and looking back,

is fit for the kingdom of God.”

Luke 9:62  KJV
