A Theist

I am a theist
And make no apologies
I believe in Jesus Christ
Not man-made ideologies
Nor in man’s speculation
Nor his pop psychologies
For only Christ can cleanse the heart
Of sin and social pathologies.

MT 2020

Colossians 2:8 NKJV 

Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. 

Strength

Meekness does not mean weakness,
And humility does not mean retreat,
It means we patiently stand our ground,
Even faced with apparent defeat.

For our hearts and lives should be fearless,
When channeled for the Master’s use,
Harmless as doves in the Savior’s hand;
Bold as lions when He turns us loose!

MT 2020

1Peter 3:15  NKJV
But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear; 

Words

Words full of power
Words full of might,
Words piercing darkness
Words casting light,
Words softly whispered
Words strong and bold,
Words of the prophets
Messiah foretold,
Words bringing fire
Words bringing rain,
Words healing wounds
Words easing pain,
Words bringing hope
Words loud and clear,
Words of God’s kingdom
Present and near,
Words of King Jesus
That abide evermore,
The Word holds the key
To unlock heaven’s door.

MT 2019

Mat 24:35  NKJV
Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away. 

Pondering Illusion

As I ponder the path of my life,
I have come to a reasoned conclusion,
The thought that I control my own destiny,
Is fantasy and delusion.

For we all will meet our Maker one day,
No exception and no exclusion,
And If we live now like there is no God,
In the end He will shatter that illusion.

MT 2019

2 Corinthians 5:10 NKJV

[10] For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.

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.

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.”

Called

We are called to something more noble,

We are called to a much greater cause,

We are called to a much more meaningful life,

Than to live for man’s praise and applause.

We are called to serve the true Master,

We are called to follow His lead,

We are called to stand up for the poor and oppressed,

We are called to help others in need.
