5-14-15 Precious Indeed

Clay Jar

6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

2 Corinthians 4:6-7 KJV

            ~~~~~~~~~~~

How precious is the Word from God to man!

The light that shines from darkness dwells within,

Infused by Christ, the Holy Ghost did fan

Until it raised the dead once lost by sin.

So like a pearl within an oyster shell,

Or diamonds held inside a leather pouch,

This treasure in our earthen vessels dwell,

Too dear for any man to claim and vouch.

We all are blind from birth without the light,

But then the love of Jesus brushes by,

And if we do believe He gives us sight,

His light now in our hearts to then apply.

This light of knowledge cannot be undone:

The glory of the Father’s in the Son

8-12-14 The Word of God

scriptures-008

The word of God is precious to the soul,

A pearl so pure its price cannot be set,

And hid within the heart it takes control,

An antidote for sin whenever met.

When mixed with faith, the word becomes a shield,

Deflecting all assaults from Satan’s sword,

And kept within the mind the word’s revealed,

A map to lead the soul to wisdom stored.

The scriptures do attest to Christ throughout;

From Genesis to Revelation He’s shown,

The Way to Heaven’s gate without a doubt,

To gather all God’s children to His throne.

The word of God, a living water pure,

The Holy Spirit’s voice that will endure.

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

Thy word have I hid in mine heart,

that I might not sin against thee.

Psalm 119:11 KJV
