1-26-16 Because

godlovesme

Then she fell on her face, and bowed herself to the ground, and said unto him, Why have I found grace in thine eyes, that thou shouldest take knowledge of me, seeing I am a stranger?

Ruth 2:10 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

Who am I, Lord, that You bestow such grace?

I’m just a lowly sinner bound for hell.

There’s no redeeming value, not a trace.

I’m here within the dust where Adam fell.

How can You love me, God, in all my shame?

I am not worthy of Your love at all.

You gave Your only Son, who then became

The ransom for my sins both great and small.

Your Holy Word tells me You love me so;

You showed Your love for me on Calvary.

You made me for a reason, this I know,

To be Your child to love as You love me.

O Abba! You are all I ever need,

And by Your grace, O Father, I’ve been freed!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Remember: God IS love.

1-1-16 Please Let Him In

open up the door and let Him in

Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

Revelation 3:20 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

O sinner, hear Him knocking at your door!

The hour is late; don’t let Him pass you by!

Please let Him in; He’s who you’re looking for!

The beating of your heart means He’s nearby!

O sinner, hear Him calling out your name!

Do you not recognize your Savior’s voice?

Please let Him in; you’ll never be the same!

Just open up your heart and you’ll rejoice!

O sinner, Jesus died that you might live!

When He was on the cross He thought of you!

Please let Him in with all His love to give!

Don’t let another moment pass you through!

O sinner, drink with Christ His cup of bliss!

Please let Him in! Eternity’s His kiss!

~~~~~~~~~~~

REMEMBER: The choice is yours. Choose Christ!

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.

1-18-15 Freed From Sin

freedom

When you accepted Jesus as your Lord

The sinner that you were was crucified,

That in your death the sin that God abhorred

Was left upon the cross and there reside.

With Jesus you were taken from the cross,

Then raised with Him a new creation born;

The old man’s life is counted as a loss

With all the law fulfilled the veil is torn.

For now so dead from sin you are then free,

And dead in Christ His love removed the stone;

Now Jesus as your Lord and Savior be,

And stepping from the tomb you’re not alone.

As Jesus took to death all earthly sin,

So you that died with Him new life begin.

~~~~~~~~~~~

For he that is dead is freed from sin.

Romans 6:7 KJV

8-16-14 Draw Nigh to God

Facial mask

Now who admits they are a hypocrite?

We think we all have got a goodly heart.

You seem so righteous when in church you sit

Then spit and swear as soon as you depart.

Draw near to God, you fake, now on your knees!

Don’t fool yourself in thinking that you’re not.

If these words pierce your soul like stinging bees,

Draw near to God, you’re worse than you once thought.

Now purify your heart with tears and prayer

And don’t give up till God draws near to you.

You must forget what others think or care,

And let the blood of Christ wash over you.

            If you let slip this warning, hypocrite,

            You’re telling God you’re good when you’re unfit.

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

Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you.

Cleanse your hands, ye sinners;

and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

James 4:8 KJV

7-27-14 The Doctor Is In

the doctor is in

If you don’t think that you need Jesus now,

And you can get to Heaven on your own,

And all religion’s hogwash anyhow,

That there is nothing you need to atone,

Then go ahead, the Saviour’s not for you.

Your righteous attitude is yours to keep.

He came to save the brokenhearted few,

The poor in spirit wretches, and lost sheep.

Why seek a doctor when you think you’re well?

You’ve got no need of healing anyway.

But you’ve a cancer driving you to hell:

Its name is sin; it’s killing you today.

The Holy Spirit’s telling you you’re sick;

You need the Great Physician Jesus quick!

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

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 2:17 KJV
