A New Creation Awaits ~

When you ask Jesus
into your heart
deliverance from sin
will spontaneously start.

When for your trespasses,
you ask Jesus to atone
living a sinful life
you’ll no longer condone.

When you ask Jesus,
to pardon your sin
regeneration
will promptly begin.

When for your sins,
you ask Jesus to forgive
your former way of life
you will not want to relive.

When you ask Jesus,
into your heart . . .
a new creation awaits
right from the start!

2 Corinthians 5:17

“Therefore if any man be in Christ,
he is a new creature: old things
are passed away; behold,
all things are become new.”

Cracked ~

God gave me this body,
and at first it was intact
but as it grew older
I saw it began to crack.

Once the cracks started,
they could not be stopped
for the more I sinned . . .
out more of them popped.

The cracks started to chip,
piece by piece they fell
and the more I tried to hide them
the more in sin I would dwell.

As they started to fall off,
I began to see the real me
and the more that I sinned
the more damage I could see.

And so I called upon God,
and His awesome power
to fill me with His mercy
so my sins He could scour.

God gave me this body,
to be used as His vessel
and now with His strength
with sin I no longer wrestle.

2 Corinthians 4:7

“But we have this treasure
in jars of clay, to show that
the surpassing power
belongs to God and not to us”

We All Need A Savior ~

We all need the blood,
to wash away our sin
we all need cleansing
from the grime within.

We all need forgiveness,
for the evil we’ve done
we all need the grace
of God’s begotten Son.

We all need to confess,
Jesus is our Savior
we all need to believe
He’s the gift of God’s favor.

We all need a heart,
trusting and believing
we all need a peace
eternal and unending.

We all need salvation,
if God were going to see
we all need Jesus . . .
to set our souls free!

~~~~~~~~~~

Romans 10:9

“That if thou shalt confess
with thy mouth the Lord Jesus,
and shalt believe in thine
heart that God hath raised him
from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Guilty Sinners ~

Guilty sinners,
deserving disgrace
instead are saved
by Jesus’ grace.

Worthy of hell,
its perishing heat
instead their Savior
in heaven will meet.

Guilty sinners,
not meriting favor
instead eternity
they will savor.

Worthy of humiliation,
for their sin
instead the crown of life
they will win.

Guilty sinners,
saved by Jesus’ grace
for He was cursed
in their place!

God’s Hand Is Not To Short ~

The hand of God,
is not too short
His plans no man
can ever thwart.

They are powerful,
they are strong
they can make right
all that is wrong.

The hand of God,
can pluck and save
those who are to sin
its worldly slave.

They are freeing,
they are liberating
they can bring change
that is life-saving.

The hand of God,
reaches wide and far
He can touch you
right where you are!

“Behold, the Lord’s hand
is not shortened,
that it cannot save;”

No One Is Perfect ~

No one is perfect,
all have flaws
all need to obey
God’s ten laws.

All have sinned,
no one is undefiled
all need to be
by Jesus justified.

All have erred,
no one is pure
all need Jesus
their heart to cure.

All have wandered,
no one is yielding
all need Jesus
His Spirit’s sealing.

No one is perfect,
all have missed the mark
all would be without Jesus
left out in the dark!

Needy People ~

Needy people,
are all around
not too hard
to be found.

Needing saving,
from addiction
needing Jesus
not rejection.

Needy people,
are everywhere
burdened down
by desperate care.

Needing hope,
from destitution
needing Jesus
not persecution.

Needy people,
needing God’s favor
the love and grace
of a risen Savior!

~~~~~~

Psalm 82:3-4

“Defend the poor and fatherless:
do justice to the afflicted
and needy.

Deliver the poor and needy:

the wicked.”

Drawn ~

Drawn by God’s power,
into the Light
drawn to Jesus
by His holy might.

Drawn to the cross,
to the Life and Way
drawn by the mercy
He showed that day.

Drawn by faith,
to be forgiven
drawn by grace
to a Savior risen.

Drawn to Christ,
to be forever joyful
drawn by God’s favor
to be always hopeful.

Drawn by my Father,
to His Son . . .
drawn to become
with Him one!

“No man can come to me,
except the Father which

Washed In The Blood ~

Jesus’ blood,
washed over me
now His love
has set me free.

Free from quilt,
free from blame
for, upon Himself
He took my shame.

Jesus’ blood,
flooded over me
flushing out sin’s
grit and debris.

At not a cost,
His grace I attained
now through faith
I’m no longer sin-stained.

Jesus’s blood,
washed over me
giving me a life . . .
now sin free!

~~~~~~~~

Revelation 1:5-6

“And from Jesus Christ,
who is the faithful witness,
and the first begotten
of the dead, and the prince
of the kings of the earth.
Unto him that loved us,
and washed us from our
sins in his own blood,

And hath made us kings
and priests unto God
and his Father;
to him be glory
and dominion
for ever and ever.”
Amen.

God’s Reach ~

There is not a life,
that God can’t save
there’s nothing done
that to Him is so grave.

There is not an eye,
that God can’t open
there’s none so blind
that He can’t put hope in.

There is not an ear,
that God can’t unseal
there’s none so deaf
that He can’t heal.

There is not a heart,
that God can’t affect
there’s none so cold
that He can’t connect.

There is not a soul,
that God’s can’t reach
there’s not a life . . .
that He can’t teach!

~~~~~~~~

“Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened,

A New Heart ~

A new heart,
is made of flesh
with Jesus’ own
it now does mesh.

It is confident,
its been forgiven
by faith its made
this decision.

A new spirit,
is one at rest
it’s one where grace
has truly blessed.

It’s filled with hope,
joy and elation
it knows Jesus
is its salvation.

A new heart and spirit,
God wants to give
so into our soul . . .
He can come and live!

~~~~~~

Ezekiel 36:26

“A new heart also will I give you,
and a new spirit will I put
within you: and I will take
away the stony heart out of
your flesh, and I will give
you an heart of flesh.

Unrepentant ~

 

 

Unrepentant,
hearts not yielding
in sin they still
are abiding.

Unremorseful,
minds unfit
to their lusts
they commit.

Unashamed,
souls not saved
care not how
they behave.

Unabashed,
darkness driven
see no need
to be forgiven.

Unrepentant,
need not be
if they’d only let . . .
Jesus set them free!

“For the wages of sin is death;
but the gift of God is eternal
life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Unclean Things ~

Unclean things,
evil thrills
follow own
not God’s will.

Need saving,
God’s pity
mercy, grace
& charity.

Unclean things,
scarred and bruised
their own souls
they’ve abused.

Lust and greed,
earthy pride
rags of filth
they can’t hide.

Like a leaf,
blown away
from the Truth
they still stray.

Unclean things,
made snow-white
if they could only
see the Light!

~~~~

Isaiah 64:6

“But we are all as an unclean thing,
and all our righteousnesses are as
filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf;
and our iniquities, like the wind,
have taken us away.”

Why Are You Weeping ~

Why are you weeping
why the tears
why do you live out
all of your fears?

What is your sorrow,
what is your grief
what has you living
in disbelief?

Who made you think,
My love wasn’t true
who made you believe
I would desert you?

Where is your hope,
who made you doubt . . .
that from the grave
I would come out?

Why are you weeping,
what has you crying
your faith in Me . . .
was worth My dying!

‘Woman, why are you weeping?'”

A New, Clean Heart ~

A new, clean heart,
in me God created
ever since my desires
for the world abated.

Now my hopes,
are set on things above
not on my possessions
that I once so  loved.

A new heart of flesh,
God put into me
with the grace to believe
in what I can’t see.

Now my wants,
are heaven centered
once to Jesus my life
I fully surrendered.

A new, clean heart,
once cold and stony
now sees right through . . .
all of satan’s baloney!

~~~~

Ezekiel 36:26

” A new heart also will I give you,
and a new spirit will I put within you:
and I will take away the stony heart
out of your flesh, and I will give
you an heart of flesh.”

Where’s The Zeal ~

Where’s the zeal,
where did it go . . .
where’s the burning desire
the narrow way to show?

Where’s the zest,
where’s the utterance
why do we now have
for sin tolerance?

Where’s the willingness,
where’s the dedication
where’s the readiness to lead
others to true salvation?

Where’s the eagerness,
where’s the thirst
why is the word sin
now on the blacklist?

Where’s the salt and light,
where did they go . . .
why has repentance
hit a new low!

Into My Flock ~

If you seek Me,
you will find
peace for both
heart and mind.

If you knock,
I’ll open My door
give to you life
forever more.

If you ask Me,
into your heart
I’ll never leave
or depart.

If you believe,
and trust Me
I promise one day
with Me you’ll be.

If you seek,
ask and knock
I will gather you . . .
into My flock!

~~~~

Matthew 7:7-12

‘Ask, and it shall be
given you; seek,
and ye shall find;
knock, and it shall
be opened unto you:

For every one
that asketh receiveth;
and he that seeketh
findeth; and to him
that knocketh it
shall be opened.”

The Need For Salvation ~

 

Some people don’t believe,
that they ever sin
some just don’t get
evilness lives within.

But I can attest,
this is not true
for I’ve read my Bible
all the way through.

Some will tell you,
God doesn’t love us
some say He isn’t
fair-minded or just.

But I can attest,
God’s a God of chances
and it’s His desire
to redeem the masses.

Some people don’t believe,
Jesus came to save
some doubt that He ever
rose from the grave.

But I can attest,
Jesus is our only salvation
and without His love and grace
we’d all be headed for damnation!

~~~~~~~~

Romans 10:9

“That if thou shalt confess
with thy mouth the Lord Jesus,
and shalt believe in thine heart
that God hath raised him from
the dead, thou shalt be saved.”

Jesus Came To Save ~

Jesus came not to condemn,
but to save us from our sin
to free us from the bondage
of the evilness that lives within.

But, the flesh fights the spirit,
and works its way into our life
bringing us upheaval in this world
and into the next one endless strife.

The works of the flesh are clear,
fornication and uncleanness,
idolatry, witchcraft, lasciviousness
envy, hatred and drunkenness.

Add to these adultery and wrath,
selfishness, strife and greed
impurity, murder and covertness
from which we all need to be freed.

Jesus, came not to condemn,
but to save those who confess
repent and turn from their sins
and no longer transgress!

~~~~~~~

John 3:17

“For God sent not his Son
into the world to condemn
the world;
but that the world
through him might be saved.”

Before The World Was ~

Before the world was,
before there was day
Jesus’ love for us . .
was already on its way.

Before the earth spun,
before the night began
Jesus’ love for us . . .
was already in God’s plan.

Before the seas flowed,
before the stars twinkled
Jesus’ love for us . . .
was already being kindled.

Before the birds took on flight,
before the trees sprouted
Jesus’ love for us . .
was already getting routed.

Before the animals roamed,
before the fruit yielded
Jesus’ love for us . . .
was already being wielded.

Before things started creeping,
before the herb seeded
Jesus’ love for us . . .
was already seen as needed.

Before man was even formed,
before woman needed molding
Jesus’ love for us . . .
had already begun unfolding!

Look At Me Jesus ~

Look at me Jesus,
look at what You’ve done
You took this sinner
made me with You one.

You took this hard heart,
once made of cold stone
put into me one of flesh
and made it Your home.

Look at me Jesus,
look at all You did for me
you’ve taken blinded eyes
so Your love I could see.

You took away my shame,
dried up tears, repentant
so that on Your grace
I’d become dependent.

Look at me Jesus,
look at my thankful soul
for in You it is now . . .
made complete and whole!

Repent, Repent, Repent ~

What ever happened to,
the old man on the street . . .
holding his sign warning
everyone that he’d meet?

There was a truth to be told,
a new kingdom was to come
and he was not too worried
about offending anyone.

Most people mocked him,
but, he didn’t feel any shame
for he wasn’t seeking after
worldly fortune or fame.

He wasn’t a rich man,
in fact he looked quite poor
but the riches that he had
were eternal and forever more.

What happened to the old man,
whose message rang a bell?
Repent ~ Repent ~ Repent
or you’ll go straight to hell!

~~~~~~

Mark 1:15

“And saying, The time is fulfilled,
and the kingdom of God is at hand:
repent ye, and believe the gospel.

God Draws Those He Knows ~

God works,
in the hearts of man
He draws those
He knows He can.

God quickens,
the souls of the ones
who by faith will partake
in the grace of His Son.

God prepares,
the minds willing
to receive His hope
peace and healing.

God pulls in,
those He knows
who will follow
the way He shows.

God works,
in man’s heart
He knew who’d be His . . .
right from the start!

Bible Prophecy, Christian News. Salvation is not in our hands. Only Jesus Christ can save. John 14:6 "Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." Also Acts 4:12 "And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Only Jesus can save! Yet not I, but through Christ in me
