8-22-15 Come See

JesusTomb

5 And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye:

for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.

6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

Matthew 28:5-6 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

Imagine Mary’s fright that Sunday morn

When she arrived to see the Master’s tomb.

She thought that she would visit there and mourn;

Instead she was to see an empty room.

The guards lay as if dead upon the ground,

And there an angel sat upon the stone,

As bright as lightning, patient and profound

To say that Christ is risen, come be shown.

To know that He has risen from the dead!

He took with Him the bulk of all our sins,

And rose just three days later like He said,

And if we just believe new life begins!

Come see the empty tomb where Jesus lay.

He conquered death and hell upon that day!

6-12-15 Blessed Be He

Hands rise up in prayer

Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the LORD:

we have blessed you out of the house of the LORD.

Psalm 118:26 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

Had Jesus lived and taught when David ruled,

The King would bless Him from the temple grounds.

But Christ came when the Priests their hearts were cooled,

And all He heard from them were angry sounds.

But we disciples of the risen Lord

Sing out “Hosanna!” with a single voice.

We worship Jesus whom we’ve long adored;

With blessings loud and strong we do rejoice!

In adoration from a faith full house,

Accept the Savior’s presence in your life.

The temple of your heart and mind espouse

The High Priest Christ whose perfect love is rife.

O blessed be the One who conquered death!

We live for Him and praise Him with each breath!

4-26-15 Seek and Find

seeking

If you’ve accepted Jesus in your heart,

You’re crucified with Him upon the cross,

Then risen with Him from the dead to start

Becoming more like Christ now all across.

Look to the Son in all you say and do,

And pray to know Him more each passing day,

Then feel His Spirit swell inside of you,

Until you disappear along the way.

Now seek those things which are above this world,

Where Christ sits on the right hand side of God,

And hunger for the Word til you’re unfurled,

No longer you, no longer frail and flawed.

The thing you seek has got no room for two.

Let go and let the Savior work through you.

~~~~~~~~~~~

If ye then be risen with Christ,

seek those things which are above,

where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

Colossians 3:1 KJV
