1-8-16 The Great Physician

great physician

16 And when the scribes and Pharisees saw him eat with publicans and sinners, they said unto his disciples, How is it that he eateth and drinketh with publicans and sinners?

17 When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

Mark 2:16-17 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

When you are sick you need a doctor’s care,

For he knows how to bring you back to health.

A broken bone can give you quite a scare;

He knows just how to mend it – that’s his wealth.

When Adam disobeyed it all began,

This plague called sin, a terminal disease.

It permeates the soul of every man,

And keeps us from our God despite our pleas.

The Great Physician came to make us whole.

He had to yield His life and shed His blood.

When we submit to Jesus Christ our soul,

Then we are healed beneath the cleansing flood.

The only way to Heaven’s to get well;

The only remedy: in Jesus dwell.

~~~~~~~~~~~

REMEMBER: Jesus bore ALL your sins on that cruel cross so that you might be made whole through Him.

8-29-14 When the Wheels Fall Off Your Cart

hard times

It seems right now that things cannot be worse;

The world has turned against you once again.

You wonder if you’ve fallen in a curse,

And where you are is sure not where you’ve been.

The Lord has such big plans for you in store;

He knows exactly what you’re going through.

You will survive this hardship and much more;

One day you’ll understand that this is true.

Do all you can today to remedy

Adversity that seems to block your way.

Have faith that God ere long will set you free;

The storm will pass and lead to brighter day.

            Rejoice, my friend! The Lord is guiding you.

            The darkness falls away when light breaks through.

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

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD,

plans for welfare and not for evil,

to give you a future and a hope.

Jeremiah 29:11 ESV
