9-26-15 The Final Authority

gavel

For the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king; he will save us.

Isaiah 33:22 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

While here you should obey the worldly laws,

For here you lay upon your earthly bed,

But if they clash with Spirit give them pause,

For Christ is your authority and head.

The laws that Jesus gives are Spirit born,

Yet they impact each aspect of your life.

He is your Lord and King when you’re reborn;

He is your final judge through stress and strife.

When you obey God’s laws instead of man’s,

You might incur the wrath of earthly judge,

But prison may be part of God’s own plans,

So always listen to the Spirit’s nudge.

The Lord will save your soul – man’s laws cannot.

You’ll still be His when all that’s mortal rots.

7-20-15 Born Again

Jesus answered and said unto him,

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again,

he cannot see the kingdom of God.

John 3:3 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

A birth into this world means tears and pain;

Your mother can’t forget nor you recall.

But when you come to Christ you’re born again,

A new creation free from Adam’s fall.

Now quickened by God’s Spirit through and through,

The blood of Christ has washed your sins away.

No longer bound by flesh you live anew,

A citizen of Heaven now to stay.

Admit that you’re a sinner, dead and lost,

That Jesus paid the price for all your sins.

Put all your trust in Him whate’er the cost

And you will be reborn – your life begins!

Drink deep the Word as milk, then eat as meat,

And watch the Grace of God make you complete.
