Fullness

The wisdom and power of the Godhead,
God’s fullness in Christ the grand plan,
The Father sending His beloved Son,
So that Christ might redeem sinful man.

God knew the dark and painful cost,
The Holy One would have to bear,
Of piercing nails and scourging whip,
And the crown of thorns He would wear.

But His wounds were badges of honor,
For Christ bore them for you and me,
To show the depths His love would go,
To make us His for eternity.

MT 2019

Colossians 2:9 NKJV
[9] For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily;

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:

Forms

Some sins are blatant and obvious,
Some more discrete and refined,
But no matter what form or fashion it takes,
Sin still makes us captives and blind.

MT   2018

NKJV John 8:34  Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin.”

I Am Here / Was and Will Be

I am here, Lord
Help me hear, Lord

Please come near, Lord
Wipe my tear, Lord

Make me pure, Lord
Conscience clear, Lord

You’re the cure, Lord
No more fear, Lord.


Was and Will Be

I’m not who I was, nor who I will be,
I am someone and somewhere between,
The man that I see in the mirror looking back,
And the new man inside that’s unseen.

Mark Tinjum-   2018

1 Corinthians 15:49 NKJV
[49] And as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man.

 

Even Though

They scorned Him, mocked Him, called Him names,
And did not believe His works or claims,
As He raised the dead and gave sight to the blind,
And was merciful, gracious, good and kind,
Though they deemed Him deserving of a cruel death,
He forgave their hated with His dying breath,
For they knew not the gravity of what they had done,
By killing God’s precious and dearly loved Son,
But to all who draw near with a repentant heart,
He gives abundant mercy, and a brand-new start.

Mark Tinjum   2017

NKJV  1Pe 1:3  Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

Yet

So often I seek my own will and way,
Instead of God’s honor and glory,
Yet the Holy One uses even messed up me,
To play a part in His redemption love story.

Mark Tinjum   –   2017

1 Corinthians 3:9  NKJV
For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building.
