If We Walk In The Light ~

If we’re to shine the Light,
then why more like Jesus aren’t we
why is His reflection in us . . .
so hard for others to see?

If we’re to act as the Light,
then why don’t we share
why to the Good News
don’t we make more people aware?

If we’re to live in the Light,
then why aren’t we a witness
why aren’t we spreading the truth
to those still living in darkness?

If we’re to be the Light,
then where is our power
why do we let satan . . .
our strength erode and devour?

If we walk in the Light,
our hope would radiate
and Jesus’ love for the world
we would always advocate!

~~~~~~

Matthew 5:16

“Let your light so shine before men,
that they may see your good works,
and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”

The Thunderous Voice of God ~

If you could hear God’s voice,
you’d hear the power and the might
behind each word and syllable
making the universe take on flight.

You would hear Him tell the sun,
it was time to shine and rise
you could listen as He ordered it
to dip into the darkening skies.

You would hear Him tell the seasons,
what time to start and when to cease
you could listen as they obeyed Him
without rebellion but in peace.

You would hear Him tell the rain,
when it was time to turn to snow
you could listen to their respect for Him
as each little flake His voice knows.

If you could hear God’s voice,
you would know He was in control
not just of the universe . . .
but, of every heart and soul!

~~~~~~~~~

Job 37:5-6

“God thundereth marvellously
with his voice;
great things doeth he,
which we cannot comprehend.

For he saith to the snow,
Be thou on the earth;
likewise to the small rain,
and to the great rain
of his strength.”

A New Foundation ~

This coming New Year,
I’m redoing my Foundation
for it has started to creak
and its turning my faith weak.

I am going to rebuild it,
from the ground floor straight on up
Jesus will be the Corner Stone
so by every wind, I won’t get blown.

This coming New Year,
I’m getting back to the basics
all the wood, hay and stubble I keep
I’ll put into a rubbish-heap.

I’ll get back to the Gospel Truths,
then I’ll lay them upon the Rock
I’ll make sure they’re God proven
not ones construed by some human.

This coming New Year,
my Foundation will be transformed
and I pray it will bear the fire . . .
so I’ll be saved when I expire!

~~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 2:20

“And are built upon the foundation
of the apostles and prophets,
Jesus Christ himself being
the chief corner stone;”

1 Corinthians 3:11-15

“For other foundation can no man lay
than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

Now if any man build upon this foundation
gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;

Every man’s work shall be made manifest:
for the day shall declare it, because
it shall be revealed by fire; and the
fire shall try every man’s work of
what sort it is.

If any man’s work abide which he
hath built thereupon,
he shall receive a reward.

If any man’s work shall be burned,
he shall suffer loss: but he himself
shall be saved; yet so as by fire.”

Faith Like A Thief ~

Give me faith Lord,
like the thief on the cross
for I am just a sinner
who is helpless and lost.

Intercede for Me,
from Your seat on the throne
plead with Your Father
heaven should be my home.

Give me faith Lord,
filled with Your grace
let Your love for me
my evil heart embrace.

 Remember me Lord,
when Your kingdom I enter
so in paradise with You
we can be for ever.

Give me faith Lord,
just like that remorseful thief
for when I die . . .
let it be, in utter belief!

~~~~~~~

Luke 23:40-43

“But the other answering rebuked him,
saying, Dost not thou fear God,
seeing thou art in the same condemnation?

And we indeed justly;
for we receive the due reward
of our deeds: but this man
hath done nothing amiss.

And he said unto Jesus, Lord,
remember me when thou comest
into thy kingdom.

And Jesus said unto him,
Verily I say unto thee,
Today shalt thou be with
me in paradise.”

The Object of My Faith ~

The object of my faith,
is Jesus and no other . . .
with anything or one else
I don’t even want to bother.

For, all other devices,
are just diversions
and all other gospels
are just perversions.

So, I keep my focus on,
what is my eternal goal
not that which will bring
damnation to my soul.

For, this world is full of,
all kinds of spiritualness
but, in Jesus I have found
truth and righteousness.

Jesus is the only object,
in which to put our trust
for, faith without His grace
alone cannot save us!

~~~~~~~

John 1:29

“The next day John seeth
Jesus coming unto him,
and saith,
Behold the Lamb of God,
which taketh away
the sin of the world.”

Lord, Be Not Far From Me ~

Lord, be not far from me,
be not faraway . . .
come close and hold me
be one with me today.

Lord, be not removed,
be not from me too far
come close and lead me
be my bright guiding star.

Lord, be not remote,
be not from me far apart
come close and help me
be with me in soul and heart.

Lord, be not far or distant,
be not from me isolated
come close and guide me
let us never be separated.

Lord, be not faraway,
be not from me afar
come close and take me . . .
right to where You are!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 27:9

“Hide not thy face far from me;
put not thy servant away in anger:
thou hast been my help;
leave me not,
neither forsake me,
O God of my salvation.”

Marc Minter

Jesus is the well of the living water, the Holy Spirit.

“It was the last and most important day of the Feast. Jesus stood up and spoke in a loud voice. He said, "Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Does anyone believe in me? Then, just as Scripture says, streams of living water will flow from inside him." When he said this, he meant the Holy Spirit. Those who believed in Jesus would receive the Spirit later. Up to that time, the Spirit had not been given. This was because Jesus had not yet received glory.” ‭‭(John‬ ‭7:37-39‬)
