Are You Ready ~

CROSS-Saves

Are you ready to go,
with Jesus to the Cross
are you ready . . .
for that bridge to cross?

Are you ready to go,
deep within your heart
are you ready . . .
for a new life to start?

Are you ready to go,
to your knees and confess
are you ready . . .
to be eternally blessed?

Are you ready to go,
into the depth of your soul
are you ready . . .
to be made complete and whole?

Are you ready to go,
can this bridge you get across
are you ready to be saved . . .
by the power of the Cross?

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

1 Corinthians 1:18
King James Version

‘For the preaching of the cross
is to them that perish foolishness;
but unto us which are saved
it is the power of God.”

Desensitized ~

To Hell with the Devil by Jimmy Paragas #5554

Lord, when I look around,
it’s not hard for me to find
those who reject You
in their hearts and their minds.

They live for the moment,
think nothing of the day
when they’ll stand before You
or what they’ll have to say.

They follow their own desires,
on others they impose
their freedoms and their rights
but don’t want their sin exposed.

There’s so much wickedness,
I am no longer shock to see
the things that I read about
or what I’m shown on my TV.

Lord, help me not to be,
by this world desensitized
so that to Satan’s lies . . .
I’ll still be able to recognize!

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

Romans 14:11
King James Version

“For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord,
every knee shall bow to me,
and every tongue shall confess to God.”

Our First Love ~

let-us-return-to-the-lord-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Let us return to our First Love,
into the arms of everlasting grace
let our steps be healed and restored
let us earnestly seek God’s face.

Let us repent from our sins,
examine ourselves in His light
let us return to our First Love
with all our soul and might.

Let us turn to the Word of God,
for our path and instruction
let us return to our First Love
for the Way and true direction.

Let us lift our hearts and minds,
give unto God our very soul
let us return to our First Love
so we can once again be whole!

~~~~~~~~

Lamentations 3:40
King James Version

“Let us search and try our ways,
and turn again to the Lord.”

Where’s Your Peace?

the-prince-of-peace used with permission IBible Verses

Where is your gift of peace,
where do you keep it . . .
is it found in a bottle of booze
or that cigarette you just lit?

Where is your gift of peace,
how many pills does it take
how many drugs do you need
till you no longer shake?

Where is your gift of peace,
when will the violence end
when will you stop hurting
your family and your friends?

Where is your gift of peace,
how much longer will you look
to the world for the answers
and not in the Good Book?

Where is your gift of peace,
where do you keep it . . .
how much longer from God
will you keep your sin a secret?

Jesus, is the Prince of Peace,
He’s your strength in all things
but you must turn to Him . . .
and confess to Him everything.

Then you will find the calm,
of God’s eternal peace . . .
and from these worldly things
in Jesus, you will be released!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 9:6
King James Version

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given:
and the government shall be upon his shoulder:
and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor,
The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”

A Pure Heart ~

God Looks at the heart used with permission IBible Verses

Lord, create in me a pure heart,
a conscience that is clear
a mind confident in You
not one, full of doubt or fear.

Let me not succumb,
to my own selfishness
so I may come to You
with a clean consciousness.

Lord, give me eyes to see,
ears so that I may hear
the Holy Spirit showing me
whenever temptation nears.

Help me to live honestly,
not breaking Your moral laws
let my ethics be principled
not full of worldly flaws.

Lord, whenever I backslide,
may I repent and confess
so on my very soul
a pure heart You can impress!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 5:8
King James Version

“Blessed are the pure in heart:
for they shall see God.”

What’s Under Your Robe?

Blessed ar Those used with permission IBible Verses

Sin isn’t just the kind,
observed with the eyes
there can be so much more
no matter the disguise.

People may point out,
the obvious sin in our life
but it’s the sin that’s unseen
that will cause eternal strife.

Sin that can’t be seen,
that we keep deep within
doesn’t go unnoticed
though we think it’s hidden.

For God sees our hearts,
the sins we’re harboring
He knows every deep secret
that we are nurturing.

We need to check our robes,
look under what it covers
there may be sin in us . . .
He wants us to discover!

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

Numbers 32:23
King James Version

“But if ye will not do so, behold,
ye have sinned against the Lord:
and be sure your sin will find you out.”

A Gathering of Two!

Two or More used with permission IBible Verses

Come together with one another,
love all for who they are
confess your own faults
seek those who wander far.

Bear your brother’s burden,
take your sister by the hand
carry one another
pray against evil, all will stand.

Give service where it’s needed,
teach the Word where you can
encourage one another
be kind to all of man.

Comfort the sick and hurting,
show all hospitality
enlighten one another
use your God-given ability.

Restore to one their faith,
forgive one and all
caution one another
pick up the ones who fall.

Have fellowship with one another,
and Jesus will be there too . . .
it doesn’t take a whole congregation
just the gathering of two!

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

Matthew 18:19-21
King James Version

“Again I say to you that if two of you agree
on earth concerning anything that they ask,
it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.
For where two or three are gathered together in My name,
I am there in the midst of them.”

If With Our Mouths?

Love In Action used wth permision IBible verses

If with our mouths we confess,
our faith in God above . . .
then why don’t we show others
unconditional love?

If with our mouths we declare,
Jesus is our salvation
then why with this world
do we still have a flirtation?

If with our mouths we admit,
we’ve been set free from sin
then why does Satan’s armies
still end up with the win?

If with our mouths we profess,
Jesus is the Lord of our life
then why do we still live
with discord, turmoil, and strife?

If with our mouths we assert,
we walk everyday with the Lord
then why in our hearts and minds
isn’t His Word carefully stored?

If with our own lips we worship,
and give honor to our King . . .
then why are we so detached
from the lyrics that we sing?

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 15.7-8

“Ye hypocrites,
well did Esaias prophesy of you,
saying,
This people draweth nigh
unto me with their mouth,
and honoureth me with their lips;
but their heart is far from me.”

King James Version

Where’s My Heart?

Conversations by Laurie  Cosgrove free photo #4047

Lord, my lips confess Your name,
my mouth utters my love for You
every day I articulate the words
that I know You are due.

With sweet expressions,
I tell other’s about Your grace
confessions of how everyday
I seek to find Your face.

My tongue drips with honey,
when I talk about my devotion
for You are my living God
and I can barely hide my emotion.

The fruit upon my lips,
speak of all You have done for me
but in my heart I must confess . . .
at times ~ it’s’ so far away from Thee!

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

Matthew 15:8
King James Version

“This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth,
and honoureth me with their lips;
but their heart is far from me.”

Unashamed ~

unashamed

I know that I offend you,
because I am a Christian
that you believe my Bible
is just a book of fiction.

I know that I upset you,
for believing the way I do
and that my faith in Jesus
doesn’t at all interest you.

I know that you’d prefer
I would just go away
that you don’t want to hear
what I might have to say.

But I cannot ever stop,
confessing what I believe
and it is my honest prayer
one day Jesus you’ll receive.

For, to me it’s a matter,
of eternal life and death
so I will confess my faith
unashamed til my dying breath!

~~~~~~~

Timothy 1:8
King James Version 

“Be not thou therefore ashamed
of the testimony of our Lord,

nor of me his prisoner:
but be thou partaker of the afflictions

of the gospel according to
the power of God;”

Spotless ~

Love by Reinhard Komanapalli free photo #2729

When my heart is humble,
and self is not in the way
that is when I know . . .
it’s time for me to pray.

When my heart is pure,
and my sins I’ve confessed
that is when I know . . .
just how much I’m blessed.

When my heart is full,
of His mercy and His grace
that is when I know . . .
His favor I shall embrace.

When my heart is chaste,
and of my shame I repent
that is when I know . . .
my sins no longer can torment.

And when my heart is spotless,
cleansed from all the stains
that is when I know . . .
in my life ~ my Savior reigns.

“Lord, thou hast heard the desire of the humble:
thou wilt prepare their heart,
 thou wilt cause thine ear to hear:”
