Salvation Stanzas, Reasons and Rhymes

allHis - because it is!

at the foot of the cross

Checkmate

Sometimes I wish I was something more,
Like a rook or bishop or knight,
A piece that strikes fear in the enemies heart,
One that puts the enemy to flight.

But God calls both the high and low,
To do battle in the cosmic fight,
And now I see in Gods economy,
My wishes are not quite right.

For God can use the lowliest piece,
As an instrument of His eternal plan,
For He meets every move and counter-move,
And the board is in God’s mighty hand.

For the Lord is the great and true Mastermind,
Satan’s schemes the King can frustrate,
For He can use the lowly pawn,
To perfect His eternal checkmate.

MT 2021

Rev 17:14  These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.”

True One

Shining in deepest darkness,
Piercing through darkest night,
Jesus the King of glory,
Jesus the Lord of light.

Jesus the Alpha-Omega,
Jesus the true God-Man,
Jesus the Lion of Judah,
Who arose out of Israel’s clan.

Jesus God’s One and Only,
Jesus God’s holy Son,
Jesus the Kinsman Redeemer,
Who makes Jew and Gentile one.

MT 2021

Joh 1:9  That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world.  [1:10] He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him.

Luk 2:32  A light to bring revelation to the Gentiles, And the glory of Your people Israel.” 

Welcomed Relief

Man of Sorrows
Well acquainted with grief
Sinless and faultless
Yet condemned like a thief
Changed human history
Though His time on earth brief
Mends broken lives
From sin’s sting brings relief.

MT 2021

1Co 15:56  The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. 
1Co 15:57  But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 

My Boast

Sometimes I feel like Gideon,
Facing off against a wicked host,
But the thing I take solace and comfort in,
Jesus Christ is my strength and my boast.

MT 2021

2Co 12:9  And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Appearance

Some think the party is here and now,
We should live to the fullest down here,
While I think God gave us this world to enjoy,
Truest joy comes when Christ shall appear.

MT 2021

Col 3:1  If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.

Col 3:4  When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory. 

Living Stones

We’re being built up a spiritual house,
An abode that is fit for the King,
And we can build it stronger each day,
By the praise and worship that we bring,
May your house be a beautiful place of peace,
Fit for heaven’s High King to enter,
May it be filled with love and every good fruit,
With the throne of Christ in the center.

MT 2020

NKJV 1Pe 2:5 
you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 

Rest and Rely

While it may not be very popular,
And will cut to the heart as well,
I believe Christ died on a cross
To save us from sin, death and hell.
I also believe He rose from the grave,
And in glory now reigns on high,
That His word is eternal and absolute,
On these truths I can rest and rely.

MT – 2020

NKJV Act 2:37-38
[37] Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Men and brethren, what shall we do?” [38]  Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
