12-2-14 Fulfilled

scripture fulfilled

When Jesus read God’s words Isaiah wrote

The scripture was fulfilled complete that day.

His very life that passage would promote,

And His disciples now the same convey.

The Savior came to save those lost in sin,

And in His name prepare them for the same,

To preach the gospel to the poor within

And set at liberty the bruised and lame.

The follower of Jesus does the work

He is anointed by the Lord to do.

There is no time to dawdle or to shirk;

The harvest is abundant, workers few.

Fulfill that scripture, too, with all your heart;

Let Jesus move within you from the start.

~~~~~~~~~~~

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,

because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor;

he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted,

to preach deliverance to the captives,

and recovering of sight to the blind,

to set at liberty them that are bruised,

To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

Luke 4:18,19 KJV (Isaiah 61:1,2)

7-21-14 Sweet as Honey

honeybee

As honeybees do labour all day long,

A minister researches scripture deep.

From flow’r to flow’r the bee draws nectar strong

Just like a preacher does sweet scriptures reap.

When full the bee brings all the nectar home

Within the hive where honey there is made;

The pastor, rich with words from scripture comb,

Turns them into a sermon, prayed and weighed.

The bee distributes honey into cells

And fills the honeycomb with sweet delight.

So does the parson share the Word so well,

To feed the congregation so outright.

The gospel is as honey to the soul

And healthy with His Spirit we’re made whole.

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

Pleasant words are as an honeycomb,

sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.

Proverbs 16:24
