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.

Need / Need Met

Need

You are good
In every way
In thought
In word
In deed
And when we love
And follow You
You satisfy
Our need.


Need  Met

Nothing is beyond You,
Nothing is above,
You met us in our deep, dark need,
And died to show Your love.

Pledge of Allegiance / Vacation or Vocation?

Pledge of Allegiance

I owe my existence
And allegiance to One,
Who died on a cross
To make a rebel His son.


Vacation or Vocation?

God did not call us on this earth
To live life a permanent vacation,
We are called to be light to a darkened world,
Ambassadors of Christ our vocation.

Mark Tinjum  –   2016

Living Water

With the gospel of peace
And grace on His lips
Some would curse Him
Some would applaud,
As He walked about
This dry thirsty world
To disperse
Living water of God.

Authority – Light in the Shadow

Authority

When we abide in the Lord Jesus Christ,
We can speak with the utmost authority,
And when we stand fast in His Holy Word,
One plus God is a landslide majority.


Light in the Shadow

Identify the enemy’s lie,
A good friend said to me,
Bring it captive to Jesus Christ,
And His truth shall set you free.
See the darkness- flee the darkness,
Run to the light instead,
Abide in the shadow of Calvary’s cross,
Where God’s precious blood was shed.
