10-1-15 Heart Burn

burning-heart

And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?

Luke 24:32 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

The fire of the Lord should burn your heart,

And if it doesn’t, you’re not close enough.

You have to be as one, not just take part;

Communion with the Lord is sturdy stuff

Consume the Word, that fiery flame of truth

Until the Holy Spirit sears your soul.

Remember all the passion of your youth?

This burning makes the past a winter stroll.

If you’re afraid the fire has gone out,

Just breathe the name of Jesus and repeat.

You’ll feel the heat begin, there is no doubt;

His Presence is a blaze that won’t deplete.

You know the Savior’s walking next to you;

His love is burning in your heart so true.

8-19-15 Not One

sinner3

As it is written,

There is none righteous, no, not one:

Romans 3:10 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

How many think they’re good enough for God,

At least are good enough to Heaven dwell?

I tell you, think such things and you’re a fraud,

The only place you’ve earned is down in hell.

You can’t stroll through an operating room

Or roam around within the CIA;

What makes you think you’re good with cheap perfume?

The stench of all your sins gives you away.

Not one of us are righteous, no not one.

A speck of sin keeps you from Heaven’s door.

But covered in the blood of Christ it’s done;

Believe He died for you, your sins He bore.

The grace of God allows this all to be;

Without it there’s no hope for you and me.
