Defuse

When rebuked or corrected
There are two paths to choose
One where we win
One where we lose
Admit fault and failure
Or cover up and excuse
And when we humbly receive it
Sin and pride will defuse.

MT 2018

NKJV  Rev 3:19  As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.

He Must Increase

It’s Him not me
Men need to see
For He not me
Died on the tree
And He not me
Reigns eternally
And He not me
Holds heaven’s key.

More of Him not me
Is my soul’s deep plea
More like Him not me
Is who I long to be
For He not me
Set this captive free
And He not me
Makes evil flee.

MT 2018

NKJV  John 3:30  He must increase, but I must decrease.

The Soul’s Sole Defender

He paid the price we could not pay,
One we could never render,
By dying once He died for all,
Humanities sole defender.

The Lamb of God was put to death,
Victorious in His surrender,
Was even with His dying breath,
Humanities sole defender.

He’s the Great Physician, heavens balm,
The soul’s perfect healer and mender,
He took our sin upon Himself,
As humanities soul defender.

MT 2018

NKJV  Psalm 103:1-2  Bless the LORD, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name!  Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits:

To Express / No Stains-No Chains

To Express

To tell of all that my God has done,
The glory of His dearly beloved Son,
No human words can fully express,
Christ’s gift of love and righteousness.

Mark Tinjum  –  2017


No Stains- No Chains

Only the blood
Of Jesus Christ
Can cleanse our deep
Crimson stains,
And only His rising
From the grave
Can free us from
Shackles and chains.

Mark Tinjum   –   2015

Never Forsaken

If you ever think
You have reached the end,
No one standing by you
To aid or defend,
When all forsake you
No comfort they send,
There is One who stands closer
Than a brother or friend.

Mark Tinjum   –   2015

 

The ABCs of Grace

I so often think
If I do ABC
Then God is obliged
To do XYZ
By His loving rebuke
I can now clearly see
Such thoughts are wrong
Borderline blasphemy
For Christ did it all
When He walked Calvary’s road
And gave grace as a gift
That is freely bestowed

Mark Tinjum   –   2016

Alone to Atone

Our Great God and Savior
Walked Mount Calvary alone
Knowing only His blood
Could fully atone
For mankind’s high treason
And the sins of all men
And to make a straight path
To the Father again.

Mark Tinjum   –   2016
