1-1-15 Be Bold

defending your faith

A resolution you can surely keep:

With boldness speak the gospel every day,

Especially if others call you cheap

Or claim that you believe in shadow play.

So many people think that God’s a lie,

Religion just a fairy tale for fools.

Rely upon the Spirit to reply;

The Savior can, through you, take them to school.

Be bold and face the constant enemy,

For Christ will do the very same for you.

Don’t be afraid to say the truth, you see,

And speak with love; He died for these ones, too.

Now plant the gospel everywhere like seed,

There’s always those who nurse a deeper need.

~~~~~~~~~~~

But even after that we had suffered before,

and were shamefully entreated …

we were bold in our God to speak unto you

the gospel of God with much contention.

1 Thessalonians 2:2 KJV

8-25-14 Jesus

Jesus suffered

He came to earth and took the form of man

To save humanity from sin and death.

So humbly His mortal life began,

Then meekly lived unto His final breath.

Obedient to all the holy laws,

He took the servant’s way for all to see,

And led a sinless life without one pause

To shed His perfect blood for you and me.

How horribly He suffered on the cross!

The weight of ev’ry sin His soul endured.

If we believe in this we’re borne across

To fall into His arms with love assured.

            He died for you, my friend, so you might be

            A child of God forever, always free.

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

And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself,

and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

Philippians 2:8 KJV
