10-3-14 Patiently Waiting for Christ

Patiently Waiting

Oh Lord, direct our hearts into God’s love,

That perfect sanctuary full of light,

Where angels always worship from above

And fills our souls with gladness in His sight.

Now let us be submerged in holy praise

So that we might arrive into God’s heart.

We pray that we might linger all our days

While we await our Saviour to impart

His presence promised, then to be achieved

When those who died in Him begin to rise.

Count us, Oh Lord, among those who believed

And waited steadily with no disguise.

Please draw us into God’s pure heart where we

Anticipate Christ’s coming patiently.

 ~~~~~

And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God,

and into the patient waiting for Christ.

2 Thessalonians 3:5 KJV

8-6-14 Temple of the Spirit

temple body

When you take Jesus as your sovereign Lord,

A change begins to happen throughout you:

The Holy Spirit promptly climbs aboard

And now transforms you into something new.

As He regenerates and sanctifies,

The Spirit needs a holy place to dwell;

Your body is His temple til it dies,

So live a wholesome life and treat it well.

Do not defile this temple of the flesh

With baseless sin and moral turpitude;

You gave your life to Jesus – keep it fresh!

As you conform to Christ, you’ll be renewed.

The temple is a place of holiness

Through which His work is done with love expressed.

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

Don’t you know that your body is a sanctuary

of the Holy Spirit who is in you,

whom you have from God?

You are not your own…

1 Corinthians 6:19 HCS
